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.

    First Docomomo Rehabilitation Award honors worldwide diversity in Modern architecture

     “Tokyo, 2 September 2021 – Docomomo International has announced the winners of the first Docomomo Rehabilitation Award (DRAW), recognizing outstanding interventions from the past 12 years in Modern architecture. On 1 September 2021, during the awards ceremony held at the 16th Docomomo International Conference in Tokyo/Lisbon, Ana Tostões, Chair of Docomomo International, revealed the 18 winning interventions and the lifetime achievement awards. Organized in 10 categories, the awards recognize exceptional projects of rehabilitation from all over the world, which respond to the complex and dynamic conditions with which architecture must engage today. “The aim was to reveal how the safeguarding of heritage can be accomplished in different settings and with varied means. The Award has not only highlighted canonical interventions on modern masterpieces, but also the sustainable and low-cost safeguarding of everyday architecture, involving action taken in challenging situations, and engaging communities as agents of change.” stated Tostões.

    Thus, the Docomomo Rehabilitation Award amplifies Docomomo International’s role in the documentation and conservation of the Modern legacy, shedding light on its inherited qualities and the importance of its reuse in contemporary life, as a key tool for sustainability at a time of global change….”
