International flooring specialists Gerflor are proud once again to be the Premier Sponsor supporting the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) Awards Programme 2019. Founded in 1839, the RIAI supports and regulates the architectural profession promoting both their core values and contributions. The RIAI seeks to provide architects with the professional training, education and research support required for the sector and for its members.
This year the RIAI is celebrating 30 years of the RIAI Irish Architecture Awards, the longest running and most prestigious architectural awards in Ireland. The purpose of the Awards is to promote the quality of current work by RIAI Members at home and abroad and to create awareness of the impact that architects make to society for everyone’s benefit. The RIAI Awards are considered by both the public and the profession as the most valued architectural awards in Ireland.
Ahead of the award ceremony on June 7th, 2019, the RIAI has launched the Public Choice vote for Ireland’s favourite building, place or public space. This year’s Public Choice shortlist is made up of 41 projects across categories such as Adaption & Re-Use, Culture or Public Building, International, Learning, Living (Homes), Public Space, Well-Being and Workplace.
All the projects on the shortlist have been designed by RIAI-registered architects, based in Ireland and overseas, and were completed in 2018. The shortlist includes entries from Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Kildare, Limerick, Meath, Tyrone and Wexford, as well as London and India.
Online voting is now open, and all the Public Choice projects are available to view on the RIAI website at www.riai.ie. Voting closes at midnight on Friday, 31st May 2019. The RIAI Awards will be announced at the RIAI Summer Party on Friday 7th June 2019 at the Round Room, The Mansion House in Dublin.
Nav Dhillon, Marketing Manager, Gerflor UK commented, “Sponsoring the RIAI Awards as Premier Sponsor in their 30th year is for Gerflor, once again synonymous with our complete commitment to quality, innovation and engagement with the architectural community.”
