Eighteen years after its original publication, Paul Oliver’s Encyclopedia of Vernacular Architecture of the World will be updated, revised, and expanded to include over 30% of new material. With around 3,000 entries, the new version of the encyclopedia is set to be published in 2018, and will reflect the considerable growth and changes in the architectural field.

In order to complete the second edition, Oxford Brookes University is asking for submissions for both the already existing sections, as well as for new sections on Consumption and Sustainable Development.

The deadline for expressions of interest is October 1, 2015, and if accepted, full entries should be submitted by June 1, 2016. Learn more about the call here, or contact Dr. Marcel Vellinga at evaw@brookes.ac.uk.
