Professor Wallis Miller Honored by SESAH

Congratulations go out to School of Architecture Professor Wallis Miller, who won the 2017 Journal Article Award from the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians. The honor, in recognition of her article “Points of View: Herbert Bayer’s Exhibition Catalogue for the 1930 Section Allemande,” comes with high praise from the members of the selection committee. They were “impressed with Miller’s study as a complex and multi-layered article about a seemingly small topic (an exhibition catalog). It entailed not only discussing the architectural spaces in the original exhibition but also the layout and construction of the exhibition catalog and the ways the catalog interacted with the architectural spaces themselves.”

Committee members marveled at Miller’s way of finding so many layers in such a focused topic. “This announcement came as a complete surprise, but I am honored to have been chosen,” said Miller. “The scope of work for this project was challenging since reference material was limited, although it was nonetheless insightful in interpreting the experience of the exhibition.”
