Louis Sullivan presents a unique opportunity for educators at both the secondary and college level to show how architecture fits into the broader cultural history of America. This is not just the story of a great architect, but how rapid social, economical and technological changes at the turn of the twentieth century influenced his creativity.
Students will see how pivotal events, from the Chicago Fire of 1871 to the Great Panic of 1893, along with the mighty forces of the industrial revolution, deeply impacted the course of Sullivan’s career and his development as an artist.
Coming Soon: Free Digital Study Guide
Currently, a digital study guide is in development that will be included in the purchase of an educational license.
The guide will be available in the fall of 2011 to fit the needs of any classroom. Just some of the features included in this guide will be:
An illustrated timeline presenting comparative political, cultural and social developments alongside Sullivan’s own life and career
Profiles of other noted 19th-century American architects
Archival and contemporary still photography of Sullivan ornament and architecture
Essays and articles from noted Sullivan scholars
Suggested questions for classroom or seminar discussion
