Stanley Tigerman
Architect and philosopher Stanley Tigerman, who says he's never been at home anywhere nor with anything, will speak at 6 tonight at the Graham Foundation in the town that has no qualms about claiming him.

Famous for outrageous designs and a mouth to match ("take your tenure and shove it up your ass," he told UIC the first time he walked out on a professorship there), he's Chicago architectural history at its liveliest (here's our recent profile). The Graham Foundation is also hosting a retrospective exhibit of Tigerman's work, notable for the absence of any photographs of his actual buildings. The lecture is free, but click here for information and to reserve a seat. The Graham Foundation is at 4 West Burton Place.
