The Architecture, Culture, and Spirituality Forum invites participation in its Twelfth Annual Symposium. ACSF 12 will take place at FALLINGWATER (Southwestern Pennsylvania), Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous work, and arguably his finest house. 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, share, discuss, and plan new ways of thinking and acting that ultimately define practices ​to a more constructive and hopeful future.

As in previous symposia, ACSF 12 is structured around a main topic (in this case "Practices Toward a Future") but 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. Keynote speakers are Frank Lloyd Wright/sacred space scholar Anat Geva, filmmaker Brent Green, and architectural theoretician David Leatherbarrow. Part of the symposium activities will include a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s nearby house Kentuck Knob.
