Join the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada in Lethbridge, Alberta from June 8-12 for this year’s annual conference, Architecture of the Great In-Between. With the Arthur Erickson-designed University of Lethbridge as its venue, the conference will focus on the idea of the neglected or overlooked especially in the vast expanse of Canada between central Canada and the west coast. Papers will not only focus on the built environment, but on the printed word and archival documents related to the art of building in Canada. Other sessions include: “Grassroots Modernism,” “Settlement Patterns on the Prairies,” and “Kits, Catalogues, Pattern Books & Lumber Yards.” Since Alberta and Saskatchewan are celebrating their hundredth anniversary as provinces of Canada, we thought that Lethbridge would be the ideal city to hold our 30th conference. Home of the High Level Bridge an engineering landmark, Arthur Erickson’s University of Lethbridge and the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden, this city holds many attractions for Society members.
