Michelangelo Sabatino




Michelangelo Sabatino is an architect, preservationist, and historian whose research broadly addresses intersections between culture, technology, and design in the built and natural environment. From his research on preindustrial 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. Professor Sabatino formerly served as director of the doctoral program and in 2017 was appointed Dean for the College of Architecture of the Illinois Institute of Technology; he holds The Rowe Family College of Architecture Endowed Chair and is the inaugural John Vinci Distinguished Research Fellow.
