Louis Sullivan Architecture

Born in Boston in 1856 and died in Chicago in 1924. Sullivan is famous with his concept, "form ever follows function".Louis Sullivan is widely considered America's first truly modern architect and is best known for his innovative Chicago skyscrapers. However, his most elegant and engaging buildings were a series of modest bank buildings he designed for several small communities in the Midwest. Older architectural styles were designed for buildings that were wide, but Sullivan was able to create aesthetic unity in buildings that were tall. Instead of imitating historic styles, he created original forms and details.
