After being introduced by Eric Owen Moss, Stanley Saitowitz discusses several projects, mostly in northern California. He argues that modernism offers two path–“form and meaning,” and “space and experience”–and he is “more interested in space than in meaning.” In describing his design of houses, he refers to them as “linear configurations” and “bar houses,” because you can look through them from one room to another.

He describes in detail the renovation a Victorian building in San Francisco for his office. He shows the Embarcadero Ribbon in San Francisco, a public landscape project in which he collaborated with Vito Acconci and Barbara Staufacher. Saitowitz concludes with a statement explaining his interest in “expanded architecture.”
