About this artwork

Educated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale University, Tigerman (1930-2019) began his career in several important Chicago architectural firms, including Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Harry Weese. In the 1970s he spearheaded the “Chicago 7,” a small group of young architects who rebelled against Miesian modernism. In private practice, Tigerman has become known for anti-establishment humor and surprise in his designs. Influential in the academic community, he first served as director of the School of Architecture at University of Illinois-Chicago and then as founder of his own school, Archeworks. Tigerman has also been an active author, critic, and curator across a broad range of subjects. The Ryerson & Burnham Archives has received the first shipment of his corporate papers and will receive the entire collection over a period of several years. The collection include project files, professional correspondence, project photographs, academic papers, including lecture notes and committee reports, manuscripts for lectures, and published and unpublished writings.
