RIAI Awards 2018 - Thapar University Student Accommodation wins Best International Building

The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) has announced on Friday, 8 June the winners of 2018 RIAI Architecture Awards at a ceremony in Dublin’s Mansion House. 

The awards recognise the quality of work carried out by RIAI members in 2017 and highlight the contribution that Irish architects make to society for everyone’s benefit.

Now in their 29th year and with 15 categories, this year’s shortlist included 32 projects, spanning 12 counties across Ireland as well as an international project in India.  The jury chose 20 overall winners and gave awards to 12 Highly Commended and 8 Commended entries.  2018 saw the highest number of entries to the awards since before the recession and the standard was so high that the jury also selected 63 projects for exhibition, which will be shown at the RIAI offices and online later this year.
