RIAI Universal Design Award

In 2013, the Centre for Excellence in Universal Design supported the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) to launch a Universal Design category as part of their annual architecture awards. The aim of the award is to promote excellence in Universal Design among the architectural profession in Ireland. As part of its support for the award, the CEUD invites an international architect to chair the jury for the award and to present a lecture related to Universal Design to RIAI members.
