Director, International Vernacular Architecture Unit
Research interests and consultancy expertise:
Vernacular architecture; anthropology of architecture; mapping and cartography; anthropology of Southeast Asia (especially Minangkabau and Nicobar Islands); indigenous knowledge and sustainable architecture; Cotswold architecture.
"The programme looks great and I look forward to attending the conference next week. For info, I attach a copy (a proof, but no changes have been made since) of a paper of mine published earlier this year in our edited book Vernacular Architecture in the 21st Century, which outlines in very general terms future research possibilities for the field of vernacular studies."
