reddy that’s a seriously ill-informed, but commonly held opinion.
No members of the AAI committie are part of the judging panel of the AAI awards, there is typically one irish architect, one foriegn architect, one foreign architectural critic and one non-architect.
compare that with the RIAI panel who all but one are ‘insiders’ in the irish architectural scene.
the RIAI awards have serious leanings towards commercial projects which (not all) have questionable architectural merits, and smack of being driven by policy more than anything else.
