The 10th Annual Symposium of ACSF will be held at Glasgow Hall designed by Leon Krier at the University of Miami’s School of Architecture and the historic Coral Gables Museum - the site for the forthcoming exhibition “Sheltering Survivors” and ACSF Paper Presentations.

The city of Coral Gables and the University of Miami is in keeping with ACSF’s tradition of meeting in historic contexts. Attendees will tour Coral Gables, recognized for George Merrick’s 1920s vision of the city as an elegant planned community. Designed according to the principles of the City Beautiful movement, the city combines tree-lined streets, tropical gardens, and Merrick’s appreciation for Italian, Moorish, and Spanish architecture. The centerpiece for Merrick’s Coral Gables is the palatial Biltmore Hotel, now a National Historic Landmark, famous for its grand Venetian pool and tropical gardens. The hotel was a Jazz Age icon, a symbol of the “American Riviera,” and once one of the most fashionable resorts in the country

Affordable lodging will be available for the duration of the symposium at the Morningstar Renewal Center, a Catholic non-profit retreat center located in Pinecrest, Florida. Information about alternative lodging at other close-by hotels will be made available later.


Cost for ACSF members is estimated at $425, which includes a 3-night stay and breakfasts at Morningstar, lunches at symposium sites, dinners at local cultural restaurants, receptions, local transport, and symposium fee. Authors (people whose work has been accepted for presentation) will have priority in geting accomodations at the Morningstart. Please register online usingĀ this Registration page.
