Irish Architecture Foundation

The Irish Architecture Foundation is a vibrant and passionate not-for-profit organisation founded in 2005 that excites people about the cultural value of architecture. They  are the only designated organisation in Ireland with a core mission of communicating architecture to the public.

What They Believe

The IAF truly believe that architecture transforms lives. It influences our everyday experience, from the interiors of our houses to our landscape, our cities and our towns.

The Irish Architecture believe that the impact of our awareness and education initiatives will create a better-built environment, and they are currently working to do  everything within their power to make that happen.
