Financial and political changes in High Springs led to the premature conclusion of the Douglass Neighborhood Development, and the Spectacular Vernacular design/build studio at UF was left without a site, client or necessary funding. However, because the Spectacular Vernacular was not conceived of or presented as a finished object (the result of a completed design process), it is hard to kill: the proposed method for housing design in North Central Florida remains valid; the 5 Points Toward a Spectacular Vernacular are still applicable to future method experiments.
