Call for Abstracts: ACSA Conference 2024

The American Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) has put out a call for abstracts for its 112th Annual Meeting, which will be held from 14-16 March 2024 in Vancouver, Canada. The conference theme is "Disrupters on the Edge." In the words of the event organisers:

" As we reach the end of the first quarter of the 21st century, we find ourselves well past the point of debating climate crisis, social inequity, resource scarcity, decolonization, and fair access to housing and health care. Architects and designers must rise to the task of addressing these urgencies. With the world’s population over 8 billion and heading towards 10 billion in the next few decades, it is imperative that we challenge the status quo to find effective solutions. As we look ahead to the next 25 years, we must ask ourselves, how have disruptors inspired us to address these urgencies with renewed purpose? What can outliers and the traditionally marginalized teach us about breaking away from customary approaches? And most importantly, how can we (re)organize our efforts and ourselves to implement more effective action in the next quarter century?"

Abstracts are due 14 June 2023. More details can be found here.

Feel free to come have a chat with a member of the BEL+T team if you'd like feedback on potential ideas for submission.
