About Dr. Michelangelo Sabatino
Michelangelo Sabatino trained as an architect, preservationist, and historian. His research explores the creative tensions between tradition and innovation in the modern project. From his research on preindustrial vernacular traditions and their influence on twentieth-century architecture, to his current project, which looks at the transnational forces that have shaped architecture, infrastructure, and landscape, he has trained new light on larger patterns of discourse and production. Professor Sabatino is former dean and currently serves as director of the doctoral program of the College of Architecture of the Illinois Institute of Technology.
