The Encyclopedia of Vernacular Architecture of the World will be a fully revised, updated and expanded edition of Paul Oliver’s classic 1997 publication. Featuring approximately 3,000 entries, the encyclopedia will contain over 30% entirely new material and will be available as a six volume printed work and as an interactive online encyclopedia. A major development in the field of vernacular architecture studies, this new edition, with its expanded, newly-comprehensive theoretical and geographical scope, will reflect the considerable growth in research in the field since the first edition. It will bring the encyclopedia, which has long been unavailable, back to prominence and to a new expanded readership, and will be the definitive and most up-to-date reference resource for the study of the world’s vernacular and traditional building cultures.


Entry Fee

The encyclopedia will be published by Bloomsbury Publishing in 2018.
