Architecture Culture Spirituality 12th Annual Symposium -- Proposals due 1 February 2019 -- 27-31 May 2020 @ Fallingwater--

Type: Call for Papers / Submissions

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Pennsylvania

Description: The Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum invites participation in its Twelfth Annual Symposium. ACSF 12 will take place at Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous work. This year’s theme is “Practices toward a Future.” A destination for architects, landscape architects, historians, designers, and artists, as well as the general public, Fallingwater offers a perfect context in which to meditate, sense, discuss, and plan new ways of thinking and acting toward a more constructive and hopeful future. Keynote speakers are scholar Anat Geva, filmmaker Brent Green, and architectural theoretician David Leatherbarrow.

In addition to the conference theme, we are also open to ideas, works, and proposals relevant to the Forum's areas of interest. Given the attraction of Fallingwater, we will top the number of attendees to a number that secures an atmosphere conducive to personal connections and in-depth dialogue. Optional meditation will be offered each morning and there will free time for connecting to oneself, the surrounding woods, and, of course, Fallingwater.

Interested individuals are invited to submit proposals for either the SYMPOSIUM THEME or an OPEN TOPIC. Proposals may be submitted in one of four categories: panel, project, paper, and workshop. There are different requirements for each type of submissions. Proposals will be blind peer-reviewed by at least three ACSF scholars/professionals. The deadline is February 1st, 2020.
