Vyta Baselice was selected as the 2018 Sally Kress Tompkins Fellow, a joint program of the Society of Architectural Historians and the Historic American Buildings Survey. This opportunity will provide resources to document a significant architectural project and write a history that will become part of the permanent HABS collection. Vyta will be researching an architectural project designed by Paul Rudolph, a notable American architect who specialized in concrete design and construction. The summer research effort will therefore directly contribute to her dissertation, which examines the material and cultural history of concrete in the United States. Vyta will receive the award at the SAH’s 71st Annual Meeting held this year in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she will also be giving a presentation on concrete and hygiene.
