Vernacular Architecture
Saturday, September 19, 2015
830 AM -- 4 PM

Vernacular Architecture, or "building without architects" is the basic component of our historic built environment, Vernacular architecture makes visible the craft traditions of a group of people, the materials they have at hand, environmental conditions, and notions of beauty. A one-day workshop will offer an overview of New Jersey's traditional, regional architecture, and illustrate the many nuances of high design that inform "vernacular" building. We will be offering Continuing Ed credits through AIA. Cost $75 includes lunch.

Instructor: Janet W. Foster has been studying and teaching about New Jersey's vernacular architecture for many years. Ms. Foster was the Associate Director of the Urban Planning & Historic Preservation Programs at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation, Columbia University from 2002-2012. She currently serves on the NJ State Review Board and on the Board of the New Jersey Historic Trust.
