Ghost 13 International Architecture Conference: Ideas in Things

April 25th, 2011 § Comments Off on Ghost 13 International Architecture Conference: Ideas in Things § permalink

The Ghost Lab, on the farm of Brian MacKay-Lyons on the Nova Scotian coast of Canada, has been the research laboratory for MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects since 1994. It has been a meeting place for an international school of architects who share a commitment to: landscape, making, and community. From June 14th to the 17th, 2011, 24 members of this virtual school will congregate on the Ghost site as Speakers for a Conference on the theme of Ideas in Things.

These Architects operate within the master builder tradition and insist on the unity of our discipline, which embraces both the academy and practice, or the mind and the hand. Through a commitment to place, we represent a resistance to the numbing effects of a globalized culture.

Join us for what promises to be an historic event at the edge of the world. A book and a film will document the Conference. Participation is limited to 200 registrants. We are approved for core continuing education credits in Canada and the US.
