From the Publisher. After a series of self-defeating trials, Stanley Tigerman arrived at the portal beyond which was architecture theory and practice. The title says it all, Designing Bridges to Burn is about an unnecessarily long and circuitous journey toward professional standing in a field that only after World War II could countenance the way in which the author approached a profession that before was only available to those to the manor born. Designing Bridges to Burn is filled with often hilarious, sometimes poignant stories about the last quarter of the 20th century of American architecture with its architects’ conceits, foibles and missteps that only an outsider could have engaged in.
