Summary:
Explores the idea that Louis Sullivan's ornament was central to his contribution as architect and city shaper. Early in Sullivan's career in the 1890s, when he emerged as a leading skyscraper architect of Chicago, his ornament gave scale and quality to his work. After 1900, as his career declined, it served to identify his buildings and the humane conception they encapsulated in an increasingly hostile cityscape. The brilliant pencil execution of ornament in his old age became a surrogate for the great architectural projects realized earlier. Stunning new color photographs illuminate this extended essay on how Sullivan's ornament shaped the city.
