Irish Architect Showcase Shanghai: The London Edition


In association with the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (RIAI), Kildare County Council is exhibiting the Irish Architect Showcase Shanghai: The London Edition from 8th January to 5th February 2016, 10 am to 3 pm daily.

Located on Level 2, Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, the exhibition promotes the cultural identity of Irish architecture and initiates dialogue on cultural and education exchanges as well as highlighting the work of Irish architects at home and abroad and the best of contemporary rural housing in Ireland.

The London Edition of the exhibition, currently on display in Áras Chill Dara, demonstrates the stellar work of Irish architects, current and historic, at home and aboard.  Showcasing their work across a wide range of sectors including housing, commercial, healthcare, education, the exhibition also shines a light on their achievements in relation to sustainability and conservation projects.  A feature of the exhibition is Heneghan Peng Architects award winning design for Kildare County Council's headquarters; Áras Chill Dara.

The RIAI is working extensively to promote the quality, diversity and culture of Irish architects work internationally and support the increasing number of Irish architectural practices working overseas. A European survey has shown that 26% of Irish architecture practices’ turnover was generated from export work in 2011.

This exhibition was developed with the support of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht under the Government Policy on Architecture.
