Louis Sullivan and the Chicago School of Architecture: American Originals    NEW!

In Chicago in the later 19th century a new architecture of tall buildings (skyscrapers) with innovative construction emerged. One of the leaders, Louis Henry Sullivan (1856-1924), helped to create this new architecture and contributed a new form of ornament. Sullivan with his partner Dankmar Adler designed landmarks in the city and in St. Louis, Buffalo, and New York. He wrote articles and books on his new architectural approach. However, his personal life had major problems and he wound up designing in small rural towns and died in poverty. The course will cover Sullivan and other Chicago architects work from the period.
