BIO (English)

Michelangelo Sabatino (Ph.D.) is Associate Professor (and History-Theory Coordinator) at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture, University of Houston. Sabatino is an architect, critic, and historian whose research  and teaching explore the intersection of intellectual history and material culture in the practices of modern to contemporary architecture, design, and urbanism.

His publications have most recently revolved around his quest to understand how (and why) political, social, economic, and artistic developments spurred a creative dialogue between modernist architects working in Mediterranean countries such as Italy, Spain, France, and Greece and the pre-industrial vernacular traditions of their homelands. Along with his new sole-authored book entitled Pride in Modesty: Modernist Architecture and the Vernacular Tradition in Italy (2010) Sabatino recently co-edited (with Jean-François Lejeune) Modern Architecture and the Mediterranean: Vernacular Dialogues and Contested Identities (2010).

Currently, Sabatino is working on a new book entitled Concrete Utopias: Architectural Environments of Arthur Erickson forthcoming for Princeton Architectural Press and McGill-Queens University Press. This book focuses primarily upon the urban approach and typological innovations that made Erickson’s work so influential in the 1960s and 1970s.

Sabatino trained as an architect and historian at the Università Iuav di Venezia and the University of Toronto, Department of Fine Art. After completing a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard University’s Department of the History of Art and Architecture and teaching one year at Yale University’s School of Architecture he was appointed at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture.

Sabatino has received fellowships and grants from the Canada Council, Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in Fine Arts, Georgia O’Keeffe Research Museum, the Houston Architecture Foundation, the Japan Foundation, the Wolfsonian-FIU, and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. He has recently been appointed Visiting Scholar for 2010-2011 at the Canadian Centre for Architecture to work on his manuscript on Arthur Erickson. Most recently Sabatino was appointed a fellow in residence at the MacDowell Colony. A complete list of awards is available on the Awards page.
