Gregory Saldaña teaches masters and post professional documentation and architectural preservation courses at Taubman College. His research is focused on the preservation of modern architecture in the American cultural context, with a particular interest in industrial and regional influences.

Since joining the faculty in 2009, he has curated a number of critical exhibitions addressing the history and speculative future of modern architecture, including: Modernism at Risk / Michigan Matters, Constructing Modern: The Work of Robert C. Metcalf, and most recently Michigan Modern: Design That Shaped America hosted by Cranbrook Art Museum. He is currently pursuing an extended study of work by Eero Saarinen and Robert C. Metcalf, exploring the relationship between manufacturing and design during the early formation of mid century modern architecture and adaptation to regional influences for the design of the single family home of the same period.

Saldaña received his BFA and BARCH from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a Master of Science in Historic Preservation from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a project designer in the office of MPdL Studio, an architecture firm with offices in Ann Arbor, Boston, and New York City.
