Michael Faciejew is a historian and theorist of the global built environment. He is an Assistant Professor at Dalhousie University’s School of Architecture. He researches the intersecting histories of architecture, media, technology, and colonialism since 1800. He is currently working on his first book, which examines the architectural and imperial
transformations that forged a modern culture of information in Europe between 1890 and 1960. He is also developing the interdisciplinary volume After Concrete: Rethinking
Material Dynamics, which looks at the entwined histories of environmental transformation and concrete construction. His work has been published in Grey Room, Thresholds, Transbordeur, and Architectural Theory Review, among other publications. His research has been supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, and other organizations. Before arriving at Dalhousie, Faciejew was a postdoctoral associate at Yale University, where he coordinated the interdisciplinary Mellon Sawyer Seminar “The Order of Multitudes: Atlas, Encyclopedia, Museum”.
