Vernacular Architecture Society of South Africa


In 1964 the Vernacular Architecture Society of South Africa was founded as a result of the interest in folk buildings stimulated by a course at the University of Cape Town Summer School, led by Dr James WALTON.

The society is a voluntary organisation that aims to support the study and preservation of vernacular architecture in South Africa. It is Cape Town based, not for profit, and run by members in their spare time. It publishes a a bi-annual journal, as well as studies and surveys. It acts as watchdog for the protection and conservation of South Africa's vernacular architectural heritage.
