Introduction by:

Stanley Saitowitz discusses several projects, mostly in north 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.”

Following an introduction by Coy Howard, Stanley Saitowitz presents a range of projects which he categorizes as residential, urban, and public. Saitowitz describes his interest in residential work that is site specific, his struggles integrating certain structure and material types into the urban fabric of San Francisco, and his interest in connectivity in public projects. He expresses a desire to expand the role of space and the reduction of form, hoping to frame moments and events through his work.
