Thinking of VAF’s 40th Annual Conference, Landscapes of Succession in Philadelphia, May 29-June 1? Registration closes on Friday, May 10th and we would love to see you there! This conference explores the successive and overlapping built peripheries of the city, from the early 18h century to the present. Through a study of the zones around the city core, we take conference goers on a journey along the arteries and into the formerly peripheral urban zones that are now incorporated into and transformed by surrounding urban fabric. The conference documents the blurred divisions between city and countryside, commercial and residential, rich and poor neighborhoods over a landscape shaped by the rivers, railways and trolley lines, and interstates.
