The All-Ireland Architecture Research Group (A-IARG) is an organisation that aims to promote architectural research within practice and academia. The group was founded in 2010 through the collaboration of the seven schools of architecture in Ireland, both north and south. The group is made up of members of the seven schools of architecture and professionals interested in architectural research.  Each year an architecture conference is held in one of the schools.


On 27-28 January 2017 the Architectural Research Group (aRCH) at Waterford Institute of Technology will host the sixth annual conference. The aim of the conference is to highlight new areas of architectural research, encourage collaboration and facilitate dissemination of findings.
