A hum throughout the video gets louder near the end.

Stanley Tigerman presents a selection of his work and discusses the development and concepts behind each project. He claims that his architecture is in the central tradition of architecture in that it produces objects that synthesize disparate conditions. His urban villa project for the Berlin IBA takes Mies Van Der Rohe's 1909 Perls House as a model for his tripartite design. His Energy Museum in Zion, Illinois references the fact that the town was designed by an Evangelical minister, and attempts to rewrite the town's connection to Jerusalem. His project for the 2000 exhibition at the Staatsgalerie in Berlin attempts a kind of rewriting that comments on the condition and potential of the city.
