Architectural Studies is a growing component of the undergraduate liberal arts curricula at many colleges and universities, generally those that do not offer pre-professional architectural education. Often housed in an art history department and directed by an architectural historian, Architectural Studies programs generally feature an interdisciplinary major and/or minor capable of providing students with a range of critical perspectives on the built environment, as well as preparation for professional graduate study. The SAH Architectural Studies Affiliate Group provides opportunities for SAH members associated with and interested in Architectural Studies programs to discuss the institutional and pedagogical challenges unique to these programs.

    “ The Symposium places the nexus between architecture and energy centre stage in our understanding of the historic built environment, considering how both large-scale energy consumption and socio-political regimes of energy production force us to give greater consideration to architecture’s environmental impact through time.  By investigating the relationship between buildings and energy, in conjunction with other factors such as the building industry\’s contribution to deforestation, eco-system destruction, and wide-spread pollution connected to primary material procurement, architectural history can reclaim its long-standing place as a central contributor to architectural debate and practice. Much more importantly, considering the history of architecture in this context can make a significant contribution to understanding and addressing the fossil fuel dependency and biodiversity crisis that threatens the continuation of life on Earth….”
