Architecture at the Edge’s mission is to promote excellence in the built environment and to advocate for responsible architecture.

Architecture at the Edge (AATE) is not-for-profit organisation
established in 2017 to promote an appreciation of West of Ireland architecture.

AATE demonstrates how design enhances quality of life, while addressing important issues of society through responsible architecture. Over the course of the weekend, AATE aims to inspire the citizens of Galway and Mayo by unveiling some of the West's most outstanding architecture.

Curated by a local voluntary committee, Architecture at the Edge has emerged from what was previously known as ‘Open House Galway’.
