Founded in 2009, INTBAU Ireland is the all-island Chapter of the International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism. Our aim is to promote sustainable traditional practices in the design of the built environment of Ireland’s towns and rural areas.

By being linked to an extensive worldwide network, INTBAU Ireland is uniquely placed to connect our local members with exemplar projects and professionals across the globe. We also provide a platform to support and showcase local traditional projects to our network at home and abroad.

The importance of tradition in the creation of new architecture in Ireland is growing rapidly as society seeks and recognises solutions in the imbedded wisdom of our existing architectural heritage. INTBAU Ireland aims to provide practical advice and helpful support for those interested in traditional solutions when designing and appreciating all kinds of buildings, architecture and urbanism in Ireland.
