    Cover page. UWI Museum CollectionSuzanne Francis-Brown (UWI Museum) worked with Jamaican architect Peter Francis on  Norman & Dawbarn, the UCWI, and Tropical Modernist Architecture in Jamaica, published in Caribbean Quarterly, Volume 65 Issue 1. 

    In the late 1940s and early 1950s, the regional University College of the West Indies was one of the early greenfield universities developed in the waning British empire, which drew on the work of several British architects working in the tropics post-World War II. British modernist architect Graham Dawbarn brought a spare sensibility, climatic considerations and modern systems to the Jamaican landscape where the university’s founding campus was located.

    A Field Guide to American Residential Doors by Seth Hinshaw is a historic account of the changing design of doors from 1650 to 2000. It highlights the 300 most commonly encountered doors in the United States. The book is arranged around five classes of doors: batten doors, paneled doors, sash doors, veneered doors, and ancillary doors. The book covers the history of each of these classes of doors and discusses variations of doors within each class. It also includes a brief overview of the millwork industry with thumbnail sketches of some important door companies.

    Buildings & Landscapes is the leading source for peer-reviewed, scholarly work on the vernacular architecture of North America and beyond.  The journal continues VAF's tradition of scholarly publication going back to the first Perspectives in Vernacular Architecture in 1982.  Published through the University of Minnesota Press since 2007, the journal publishes two issues per year.

    The editors encourage rolling submissions of scholarly articles that integrate fieldwork and archival/primary source research into original arguments about the history of everyday buildings and/or landscapes. The editors particularly welcome submission of articles on topics related to the study of North American vernacular architecture or which otherwise broaden the context of NorthAmerican architecture and cultural landscapes. Authors are urged to draw linkages between the physical aspects of the built environment they study and the people who create, consume, use, and inhabit it. If an author is unsure about a manuscript’s fit for the journal, they are encouraged to contact the editors in advance of a formal submission: Carl Lounsbury(carllounsbury@gmail.com) and Lydia MatticeBrandt (lbrandt.usc@gmail.com). To find out more about submitting to B&L, please visit the VAF website.
