European Association for Architectural Education elects Irish President

25 September 2003

EAAE, the European Association for Architectural Education, was founded in 1975 to provide a European perspective for the work of architectural educationalists and relevant governmental agencies. EAAE membership includes more than 100 Schools of Architecture right across Europe, representing 5000 faculty members and more than 100,000 students of architecture.

At its annual meeting held in Crete this month, the Association elected James Horan, Head of the School of Architecture at the Dublin Institute of Technology, as President. The President is elected for a two-year term.

Mr. Horan said he was honoured to be elected. "The EAAE provides an important framework whereby its members can find information on developments in other member Schools of Architecture. In addition, its conferences, workshops and summer schools address a wide range of issues and can be invaluable for young teachers. During the next two years I hope to assist the Association in further developing its network and its support to members."
