Steven Lauritano

Lecturer in Architecture

Steven Lauritano is a theorist and historian of architecture whose work examines the relationship between historiography and design.  His research interests include hybrid practices of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century architect-antiquarians, the survival of antiquarian methodologies in contemporary design culture, the history of building preservation and the history of world-architectural-histories, from the seventeenth century to the present.  Lauritano has served as a Lecturer at Taubman College since 2017, when he was named the Walter B. Sanders Research Fellow.  Prior to joining the college, he received his doctorate in the History of Art from Yale University and his M.Arch from the Princeton University School of Architecture.  His writings have appeared in Perspecta, Pidgin Magazine, 306090 Books and Circo.  Most recently, he was named the 2018 Panofsky Fellow at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte.  He has received research support from the Graham Foundation, the Berlin Program for Advanced German and European Studies, the Kress Foundation and the Fulbright Program, among others.
