Will Archeire be getting any promotion from the TV show? I ask because whenever I tell people about this site, many are unaware of it and then start raving about it to me afterwards.

"Its real purpose is to encourage Irish people, of all ages and from all backgrounds, to take ownership of their built environments."
The RIAI would have a baby if the people were in control. Architects like to talk down to the people and push their own opinions onto any debate - the "we know best" argument.
Afterall isnt this forum about taking back the built environment from the realms of academic architectural discussion.

As a non architect myself, I always feel on dodgy ground when speaking to architects about buildings and architectural history.

But on the other hand one of the problems in this country has been that the specialists aren't specialised enough. Dublin city is littered with enough evidence left by architects who could do with knowing a bit more about architecture.
As well as getting wider, the debate in this country has to get a good bit deeper.
