New Eileen Gray Fellowship launched


The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and Centre Culture Irlandais (CCI) with the support of the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs have announced a new fellowship for Irish Architects.

The Eileen Gray E1027 Fellowship for Architecture is in memory of one Ireland’s greatest architects – Eileen Gray (1878-1976) whose work includes her former home, the influential E1027 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, which has been restored by the Cap Moderne Association.

The objective of the fellowship is to support an Architect in research focusing on the wider theme of innovation in how we live – from our homes to our cities and towns – and a visit to E1027 will form part of the fellowship.

Applicants are invited to apply for the Eileen Gray E1027 Fellowship for Architecture. The application process will close on 9 June 2022 at 5pm (GMT).

The Fellowship will take place for a month during the period Jan 2023 – December 2023. Registered Architects who are Members of the RIAI are eligible for the Eileen Gray E1027 Fellowship for Architecture. Applicants must be Irish citizens or normally resident on the island of Ireland.
