Architect Louis Sullivan

He was brilliant and passionate, hot-tempered and egotistical, and he altered the course of American architecture. Louis Sullivan’s life story is like a Greek tragedy. And his buildings are works of great art. In the mid-twentieth century, many of his buildings were torn down and Sullivan himself was nearly forgotten.

In their new book, Louis Sullivan: Creating A New American Architecture, author Patrick F. Cannon and photographer James Caulfield attempt to shed new light on a master architect who was once underappreciated and some would say nearly forgotten, but is now celebrated and widely studied. They join us to discuss the book on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.

Check out a slideshow of Sullivan’s architecture below.
