Architecture Canada | RAIC and the Nova Scotia Association of Architects (NSAA) are jointly organizing the 2013 NSAA / Architecture Canada | RAIC Festival of Architecture, which will take place from June 5 to 8, 2013 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
This Festival’s theme of “Value of Beauty – Integrity in Architecture” is particularly meaningful in the Maritimes. Located on the eastern seaboard of Canada, the Maritime provinces have evolved a distinctive architectural landscape, one that is rooted in the land and has developed over centuries as a result of interactions with cultures across the Atlantic, as well as indigenous cultural practices already here. Architectural practice in the Maritime provinces has traditionally valued utility, respect for cultural traditions, and a healthy appreciation for the power of nature. This has created an architectural culture that prizes architectural integrity through craftsmanship, economy and elegance of expression.
The Festival is designed to provide architects from across Canada with top-notch continuing education sessions. Architecture Canada and NSAA invite proposals for the presentation of professional development sessions to architects during the annual Festival of Architecture. This will be a four day opportunity to engage in professional development and to network with others interested in the multifaceted world of architecture.
The deadline for proposals is December 17, 2012.
