In April, VAF board member Zachary Violette received the Society of Architectural Historian's Spiro Kostof award for the publication of his book The Decorated Tenement: How Immigrant Builders and Architects Transformed the Slum in the Gilded Age. This award was established in 1993 at the Society's Annual Meeting in Albuquerque, in recognition of Spiro Kostof's extraordinarily productive and inspiring career that was ended by his premature death in December 1991. In the spirit of Kostof's writings, the award will be given to interdisciplinary studies of urban history that make the greatest contribution to our understanding of the growth and development of cities.
