To our dear ACSF members,
As you have learned, ACSF-12 at Fallingwater has been postponed until June 2022 because of the pandemic. We recognize that nothing can replace our wonderful annual gatherings in beautiful places. However, we have planned some on-line events that we hope will bring our community together. These include two webinars scheduled for dates in May 2021, and a membership meeting and social hour in early June.
Please join us! To register go to the registration link for each event.

The Critical Conversations Project is a series of thematic roundtable discussions conducted by the Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum in partnership with the Center of Theological Inquiry. The goal is to broaden considerations of leading-edge issues of the built environment through incorporating spiritual perspectives. A multidisciplinary group of experts from architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, public interest design, material culture, theology, religious studies, psychology, anthropology, history, and environmental health will discuss how the cultural, ethical, environmental, or transcendent aspects of the built environment can address contemporary challenges of globalization, urbanization, economic disparity, climate change, migratory pressures, political and religious radicalization, and disruptive technologies.
