Interview with architect Stanley Tigerman (1990)

Today, Chicago-based architect Stanley Tigerman is being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects Chicago for “his innovative design in over 175 built works for ‘all levels of society'” as well as the lasting influence of his critical and theoretical writings.

Back in 1990, Tigerman was interviewed for an episode of The 90’s, where he espoused his own approach to architecture while levelling a few choice criticisms against the profession as a whole. The resulting footage gives a good glimpse into the mind of the man, and the theories that underpinned his work.

This collection of raw footage was digitized through the support of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, and supporters like you.
