Wood Awards Ireland 2022 is open to Registered Architects, engineers, designers, woodworkers, third level students, researchers, working in Ireland – north and south – or overseas who incorporate wood as the inherent medium in submitted projects. WAI is a collaboration between Forest Industries Ireland and the RIAI, and supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Enterprise Ireland, Rotary Ireland and the Society of Irish Foresters. The presented awards are designed by Michael Warren, Ireland's leading sculptor and Honorary RIAI Member.
Eligible projects need to be completed during the period 1 August 2019 and 12 August 2022. Construction projects must be in compliance with the Building Regulations. As WAI is an all-Ireland event, entries accepted for construction projects only from MRIAI or RSUA members. Timber used must be sourced in sustainably managed forests and conform to the EU Timber Regulation (No 995/2010).
The closing date for entries is 16 September 2022.
The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) is a champion for quality architecture for the benefit of everyone in society. The RIAI is the registration and support body for architects in Ireland and provides support for architectural technologists.
