The fifth annual meeting of the All Ireland Architecture Research Group  will be held in Cork on the 29-30 January 2016.

The All-Ireland Architecture Research Group (A-IARG) is an organisation that aims to promote architectural research within practice and academia. The group was founded in 2010 through the collaboration of the seven schools of architecture in Ireland, both north and south. Each year an architecture conference is held in one of the schools. On 29-30 January 2016 the Cork Centre for Architectural Education (CCAE) will host the fifth annual conference. The aim of the conference is to highlight new areas of architectural research, encourage collaboration and facilitate dissemination of findings. The main body of the conference will consist of twelve thematic sessions, which were selected through an open call. Each session will typically have four paper presentations investigating the theme in question.

On Friday evening we are delighted to welcome Charles Jencks as our keynote speaker, followed by the conference dinner. On Saturday afternoon, the conference will close with a site visit of recent work by O’Donnell Tuomey to St. Angela’s College. On attendance of the two-day conference 12 cpd points could be achieved.
