Sandy Isenstadt


Sandy Isenstadt is Associate Professor at the University of Delaware, specializing in the history of modern architecture. His writings span post-World War II reformulations of modernism by émigré architects such as Richard Neutra, Josep Lluis Sert, and Henry Klumb, visual polemics in the urban proposals of Leon Krier and Rem Koolhaas, as well as histories of American refrigerators, picture windows, landscape views, and real estate appraisal. He is the author of The Modern American House: Spaciousness and Middle-Class Identity, which describes the visual enhancement of spaciousness in the architectural, interior and landscape design of American domestic architecture. His work has been recognized with fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, and the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts. He was recently a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.

In a previous life, he was a practicing architect.
