Not the Irish institute.

Still on our British Isles tour, the relatively new Irish site Archeire, aka Irish Architecture Online at www.irish-architecture.com (although it may now be archeire.com), spawned Archiseek at www.archiseek.com which we reviewed briefly three years ago. This is not a global architecture search engine but, more interestingly, seeks to 'create discussion on architecture between architects and the public'. And there it is in the site's chatrooms whose topics range from Irish, world and Portuguese architecture, to jobs, student issues, and so on. There is a planning news section, competition announcements, events, online polls, book reviews and things like that. The site's growth zone seems to be its architectural guides - though so far these are to places such as Winnipeg, Inde-et-Loire and Edinburgh. Still, put it in your Maybe file in Favourites and watch it develop slowly. Recently Archeire had a lot of construction shots of Ian Ritchie's 120m steel spire in Dublin, built to replace the Nelson Pillar which some sad people blew up in 1966. Archeire is not, incidentally, the Irish institute's site. It's at www.riai.ie.
