The Irish Architectural Archive is an independent limited company with charitable status which collects and preserves the records of Irish architecture – from the earliest structures to contemporary buildings – and makes these freely available to all who wish to consult them.
The Archive is a non-contentious body which does not involve itself in the planning process or matters of conservation controversy.
The Archive is governed by a Chairman and Board of Directors.
Responsible for the day-to-day running of the Archive are the Archive Director and Archive Administrator each of whom reports independently to the Board. The Archive Director has responsibility for acquisitions, photography and recording programmes, architectural reports and the provision of advice. The Archive Administrator’s responsibilities include financial management, reading room administration and the archival processing of the collections.
