Two tour days in Durham, NC; Vernacular Architectural Forum,VAF 2016

I was recently selected to present a paper on Field Notes during the Vernacular Architectural Forum, which took place the first week of June in Durham, North Carolina. As part of the event – as it is customarily – there are two intense days of touring around preselected areas to experience first hand vernacular examples and communities. 

Here are a few sketches I made during those days.
