Editorial Reviews

The first feature-length documentary about the revolutionary and brilliant Chicago architect Louis Sullivan (1856-1924). Known by historians as the 'father of the skyscraper' and creator of the iconic phrase 'form follows function,' Sullivan was on top of his profession in 1890. Then a series of setbacks plunged him into destitute obscurity from which he never fully recovered. Yet his persistent belief in the power of his ideas created some of America's most beautiful buildings ever created, and inspired Sullivan's protégé, Frank Lloyd Wright, to fulfill his own dream of a truly American style of architecture. Magnificent footage of surviving Sullivan buildings combined with thoughtful insight by Sullivan scholars and great storytelling, this award-winning film has won approval from architects, educators and critics. Named to the American Library Association's 2011 List of Notable Videos for Adults.
