About the Awards

The Building & Architect of the Year Awards is organised by BusinessRiver, a network solution hosting over 30 events and connecting over 25,000 business professionals across various industries. This vibrant community fosters collaboration and innovation within the design, construction, and development sectors.

BusinessRiver has a distinguished history of recognising top talent. Their judging panels, comprised of national and international experts, have awarded some of Ireland's most respected architects and designers through established events across related fields.

The BAYA awards are a natural extension of this commitment. They offer a much-needed platform for architects of all scales, from large firms to sole practitioners, to showcase their work across all building types – residential, public, commercial, and cultural. Carefully designed categories ensure a level playing field where the full breadth of Irish architecture can be celebrated.

We invite you to enter your project in the BAYA awards and become part of a thriving architectural community. Be recognised for your talent and contribute to the rich tapestry of Irish design.
