Flying Angel Stanley Tigerman


Flying Angel Stanley Tigerman, 1999

To know Stanley Tigerman’s work is to know Flying Angel! Much of Stanley Tigerman the man and architect is found inThe Flying Angel Clock.

The clock’s “12, 3, 6, and 9″ indices and ends of both the minute and hour hands are made of little structures which are replicas of his personal barn turned home in Michigan (another interpretation of this barn can be seen in his mailbox that he designed in 1990 for Projects).

So where’s the angel? It’s all in your imagination!

The Flying Angel Clock has a whimsy appeal that is as comfortable in a day care setting as it is in the corporate world. It measures 13 3/4” in diameter.

"I am committed to the creation of a contemporary and authentically American architecture that is characteristic of its own time and place. This philosophy leads me to assemble the standard ingredients essential to architectural production; to interact, to question, to challenge, to collaborate in order to reach a consensus and then to create a building that represents the collective energies of the client and society."
