The Vernacular Architecture Group was formed in 1952 to further the study of traditional buildings, originally those of the British Isles but more recently from around the world. The Group’s inaugural meeting was held in London in 1954 and membership is by annual subscription.
In 1971 the Group began publishing an annual journal, ‘Vernacular Architecture,’ and in 1972 they published their first 'Bibliography on Vernacular Architecture' edited by Sir Robert de Zouche Hall, founding Secretary of the Group and President from 1972-1973.
Today the Group holds annual Spring and Winter conferences and continues to publish ‘Vernacular Architecture’ and to periodically update its Bibliography with volume 6 expected in 2015.
