The Architecture of Spirituality in a Multicultural Setting
6th Annual Symposium of the Forum for Architecture, Culture and Spirituality
Trinity College in Toronto, Canada. June 5-8, 2014
The 6th Annual Symposium on Architecture, Culture and Spirituality (ACS 6) will take place at Trinity Colege in the University of Toronto (http://www.trinity.utoronto.ca/
), located in the heart of Toronto’s midtown core, June 5-8, 2014.
The topic is "The Architecture of Spirituality in a Multicultural Setting" and will explore the nature of spiritual expression as articulated in form and space within a multicultural framework. This objective will be pursued in paper-project-presentation sessions responding to the four themes: Identity; Sharing; Conflict; and Forgiveness. Compelling proposals that fall outside of these themes will also be considered for acceptance.
Submission: 500 words long proposals will be peer-reviewed by the symposium co-chairs and a selected group of ACS members. The deadline is January 27th, 2014.
Two special event are planned. One is a keynote lecture by McGill Architecture Professor Alberto Pérez-Gómez. The second will be a Sacred Space Tour of Toronto buildings, gardens, and urban settings.
Deadline: January 27, 2014
