Hometown Architect is a key initiative of the Irish Architecture Foundation’s Reimagine placemaking programme, which works with communities across Ireland to co-create and co-design solutions to problems or opportunities they’ve identified in their locality. The IAF aims to support those involved in reimagining the economic, social, and cultural importance of Irish towns and villages.
Hometown Architect invites joint applications from community stakeholders and local architects with proposals that focus on issues of particular concern, opportunities or innovations for town centre regeneration in line with the Government of Ireland’s Town Centre First Policy.
Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
