VAF Buchanan Award Announcement

The Vernacular Architecture Forum seeks nominations for the Paul E. Buchanan Award.

The award was instituted by VAF in 1993 to recognize contributions to the study and preservation of vernacular architecture and the cultural landscape that do not take the form of books or published work. Hundreds of studies, reports, documentation projects, restoration plans, National Register nominations, exhibits, video/digital media productions and public programs are completed each year without the benefit of distribution or recognition beyond the limited audience for which they were commissioned. Nonetheless, many of these efforts can serve to inform and inspire us all. The award is named for Paul E. Buchanan who served for over thirty years as the Director of Architectural Research at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Buchanan set the standard for architectural fieldwork in America and inspired many VAF members in the rewards of fieldwork. This award honors the valuable work that most of our members and professional associates perform.


Projects completed in the last two years are eligible for consideration and may include, but are not limited to:

Architectural Recording Projects (including HABS/HAER/HALS)

Historic Structures Reports

Cultural Resource Surveys

Historic Designation Studies (including National Register and National Historic Landmark)

Preservation Plans

Restoration Projects

Furnishing Plans and Installations

Exhibits and Other Temporary Installations

Permanent Museum Exhibits

Visual Arts Presentations (e.g. drawing, painting, photography, 3-D media)

Film and Video Presentations

Computer Applications and Modeling

Educational and Interpretive Programs

Symposia, Conferences, and Public Events

The application deadline for the 2017 Buchanan Award is February 17, 2017.
