Michelangelo Sabatino

Director of PhD Program

College of Architecture, Illinois Institute of Technology

Michelangelo Sabatino is trained as an architect, preservationist, and historian in universities in Canada, Italy, and the United States. His award-winning research broadly addresses intersections between culture, technology, and design in the built environment. From his research on pre-industrial vernacular traditions and their influence on modern architectures of the Mediterranean region, to his current project, which looks at the transnational forces that have shaped the architecture, infrastructure, and landscape of the Americas over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries, he has trained new light on larger patterns of architectural discourse and production.
