This is one of the most interesting and vibrant regions in the country, encompassing Cork, Kerry and Tipperary. The intricate and historic layers of Cork City contrasting with the beautiful landscapes of Kerry and Tipperary- why would anyone live and work anywhere else?!
The recent economic and social changes have resulted in a young, and young-at-heart, diverse group of architects working in the area. Regular events are well attended. These include at least 6 lectures from national and international speakers, an annual tour of recent and historic structures in the far-flung corners of the region, and at least one party!
The RIAI also work closely with organisations with parallel interests, like the National Sculpture Factory, Cork City Council, Cork School of Architecture, Irish Georgian Society and Cork Environmental Forum to co-host events, share information and generally network. We encourage all architects to become involved and make a contribution in whatever way. The continued success and diversity of the regional organisation depends on your support.
