Speaking at the announcement of the shortlist, Michelle Fagan, President, RIAI, said: "It is encouraging to see the wealth of entries in this year’s awards. These projects highlight the uniqueness that is present in Irish architecture which does not just have one generic style or one-size-fits-all approach. The projects on the shortlist show that our architects look at the landscape, the people who will be using the building and the wider community and respond to the individual needs of each space when they are designing, which is something to be very proud of."
