Vernacular Architecture Forum website launch

The new and much improved website for the Vernacular Architecture Forum is now public, at http://vafweb.org/.

If you have an interest in American buildings of any period and aren’t yet a member, join us. The conferences, which devote at least two days to tours and only one to paper sessions, are always a fantastic way to take the measure of a place, much more so than typical academic conferences which park attendees in a conference hotel for four days, with furloughs for meals. Membership is 45 bucks per year and only 25 for students–cheap! Your dues get you a quarterly newsletter, an annual journal, and reduced conference fees.

You can get a sense for most of the conferences since 2003 on a new Flickr group, here. If you prefer, a map interface to this material is here.
