2020 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
The ANFA International Conference, to be held for the first time online, will continue a tradition of exploring, fro a scientific basis, the range of human experiences that occur in context with elements of architecture, both interior and exterior. Communication, knowledge sharing, and integration will be the drivers for providing content over a two-week period. Visual reminders of Salk Institute by the ocean will be present throughout the program.
