Dear VAF members,

Welcome to the Winter edition of the Vernacular Architecture Newsletter (VAN).  In this quarterly issue you will find lots of wonderful stories about new digital resources ranging from books to photo sharing to online resources for teaching, as well as reflections on conferences past and future.   And don’t forget to check out the dynamic conference website for our VAF conference in Chicago  Hope to see you there!

I would like to invite any member to submit an article, news, or resource that you would like to share.  Please feel free to send them to me at  The newsletter is a great way to share your ongoing research or resources you have found useful in your practice.

I would especially like to solicit information about upcoming field schools for the next issue, due out in April.  Please send articles, short or long, reflections or announcements on vernacular architecture field schools, and we will compile it into our first field school themed newsletter.  I think it will be a great way to share these unique learning opportunities among our membership. Please send me your submissions by March 15.

Thanks so much, and happy reading!
