Casciato is an expert on 20th century European architecture - the Institute's most sought after content - making her an ideal choice to manage GRI's expanding archives.
“Maristella Casciato is an exceptionally accomplished scholar and curator who is passionately committed to the study of architectural history and the preservation of architecture. She is the ideal steward for our tremendously significant architecture holdings,” said Thomas W. Gaehtgens, director of the Getty Research Institute.
