As noted in my story from last week, the 25 essays in architect Stanley Tigerman’s book Schlepping Through Ambivalence were just published by Yale University Press—but they weren’t just written. They represent nearly a half century of what Tigerman calls his “bewildering ruminations.” Among them, a string of biting rants about the lock Mies van der Rohe’s disciples had on Chicago architecture for a big chunk of the 20th century. Yale dean and starchitect Robert A.M Stern has called Tigerman “a mensch,” but he’s a mensch in wolf’s clothing.
