Following on from last year’s successful series, the RIAI is delighted to partner once again with the RIBA and Architects’ Institutes around the world for this topical talks series. The series has brought architects globally closer together, debating topics that impact communities around the world and where architects can provide solutions.
The 2021 series continues with 'Topic 3: Affordable housing - what can architects do to address social inequalities?' on 22 and 23 September. Director of CMQ Architecture and Sketch Architects Gerry Cahill will represent the RIAI.
The purpose of the Global Architecture Exchanges is to build on existing relationships and/or partnerships with other professional institutes of architects across the world, and work together on online events, designed to give a space for our respective members to share perspectives, experiences, and exchange on the same topic from different parts of the world.
