Louis Sullivan and His Architecture
Posted by Tom Klemens on September 20, 2010 at 9:43 AM.

There’s a great exhibit on architect Louis Sullivan at the Chicago Cultural Center this fall that features soaring displays and huge photos and drawings of his buildings along with displays of artifacts from some of the structures. Part of the exhibit touches on his work with some of the first skyscrapers featuring steel frames in the 1890s and his impact on the development of design for skyscrapers. One great construction photo shows the steel frame on Chicago’s Schiller Building.


The free exhibit runs through January 2, 2011. For more information, click here.
