Register for the 2018 RAIC/AANB Festival of Architecture!

Saint John, New Brunswick
This year’s east coast conference takes place May 30 – June 2 in Saint John, New Brunswick.

The festival is a great chance to combine work with leisure in a popular tourist destination on the world-famous Bay of Fundy. Saint John is a port city packed with historical highlights, natural wonders, beautifully preserved 19th-century architecture, cultural attractions, parks, and charming streets lined with restaurants, galleries, and shops.

Canada’s oldest incorporated city (1785) is also the only city on the shore of the Bay of Fundy, home to the world’s highest tides and surrounded by cliffs, coves, and peninsulas.

Keynote speakers include Odile Decq, award-winning French architect, urban planner and academic and Diébédo Francis Kéré, founder of Kéré Architecture in Berlin and winner of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (2004). John Leroux, architect, historian, cultural proponent will serve as emcee.

Choose between 29 continuing education sessions and earn up to 18 hours of structured/core credits for your provincial regulators’ requirements. This year’s sessions offer delegates relevant, unique, and high-quality learning experiences to enhance knowledge, advance design and grow business.

The President’s Dinner on June 1 is one of the social highlights of the festival. There will be a cocktail reception, sit-down dinner, and awards ceremony recognizing individuals and teams who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in Canadian architecture.

This includes Gold Medalists Gilles Saucier, FIRAC, and André Perrotte, FIRAC, who will present their work. The celebration takes place at the Saint John Trade and Convention Centre.
