Seminary Co-op Bookstore in Hyde Park. He's got not one, but two books coming out this fall, Schlepping Through Ambivalence: Essays on an American Architectural Condition, drawing on Tigerman's writings from 1964 to - now -, and, Designing Bridges to Burn:Architectural Memoirs. On Friday, September 9th, he'll be the inaugural lecturer for the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust/U of C series, Thinking Into the Future: The Robie House Series on Architecture, Design and Ideas, tickets and info here. He may be an octogenarian, but to Stanley Tigerman, a schlep would appear to be a full-press sprint.
But wait, there's more! If you happen to be in the neighborhood - New Haven, that is - this Thursday, August 25th, you can stop by the iconic 1963 Yale Art and Architecture building, rededicated and renamed in 2008 to honor its architect as Paul Rudolph Hall, to hear Tigerman deliver still another lecture, DIS P L A C E M E N T, marking the opening of a retrospective on his work, Ceci n’est pas une rêverie*: The Architecture of Stanley Tigerman, which runs through November 5th. (It's coming to the Graham in January next year.) According to the press release . . .
Also included is material dating from Tigerman's student days at Yale. Next year, Tigerman's drawing archive goes into Yale's Manuscripts and Archives depository.
These old architects are truly annoying, and not very good at architecture. Maybe they should talk less and build more.
