In its third annual conference, the All Ireland Architectural Research Group (AIARG) will build on previous year’s presentations of current architectural research in Ireland. Intending a broad and inclusive spectrum of architectural research experiences present on the island of Ireland, this symposium aims to empower those engaged in research, to further enable research exchange and collaboration, and to position more clearly and more strongly our research in architecture, through architecture and about architecture.

This year’s conference will provide opportunities to continue the now established forum for the presentation and discussion of emerging research and, to foreground, in a special session of the conference, questions about the purpose, process and impact of contemporary architectural research in Ireland. For all presentations, we invite you to address issues of relevance, method and reception. In this, we hope to reach beyond the specifics of individual research topics and to focus on issues shared by all engaged in research, be it scholarly or practice-based.
