  • 1.  Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum Symposium 2024

    Posted 29 days ago

    Allied organization the Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum will be hosting their annual symposium in Istanbul, Turkey from June 5-9, 2024.

    Symposium discussions will center on the theme of "Resonance of the Past, Spirit of the Future: Exploring transcendent unity in a world of multiplicity." In addition to a thoughtful program of papers and discussions, the symposium will provide opportunity to explore Istanbul, including the Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet Mosque and other nearby areas.

    To learn more about the upcoming symposium, please visit their website: https://acsforum.org/symposium/2024-symposium/

    The mission of the Architecture, Culture and Spirituality Forum is to provide an international forum for scholarship, practice, and advocacy regarding the cultural and spiritual significance of the built environment. They do this through content creation and programming; disseminating information through publications and other platforms; hosting an awards program for outstanding work in architecture, art, design, urbanism, and related fields; and providing funding opportunities including the Lindsey Jones Memorial Research Fund, of which I am honored to be a 2023 recipient.

    To learn more about their mission and how to get involved, please visit their website: ACSF - Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum (ACSF)
