Launch of SAH Architects Council

by SAH News | Mar 05, 2018

The Society of Architectural Historians will launch its new Architects Council at the SAH 71st Annual International Conference in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The SAH Architects Council is a small, select group of designers charged with exploring ways for SAH to deepen its relationship and service to the broad community of contemporary architects. The Council aims to engage design professionals in an ongoing dialogue about our shared commitment to study the built environment and enhance it in a historically informed manner. Appointments to the Council are staggered. This year’s Inaugural Council members will participate in a panel discussion focusing on the theme of the making, management, and preservation of architectural archives.
