The life story of an architect whose main claim to fame lies in his influence on thinking rather than his style. Both as teacher and architect, he tended toward instructions and construction dictated by today's needs rather than established standards. Born in Boston - educated there and in Paris - served his apprenticeship in Philadelphia - and then went to Chicago, where he made his reputation. Recognized today for his influence with young men. Undoubtedly authoritative and will have appeal to those in the architectural field. But as a man he does not command interest, at any rate not in the hands of this biographer. A book most shops can pass up. (Kirkus Reviews)
First published over sixty years ago, Hugh Morrison's Louis Sullivan: Prophet of Modern Architecture was the first definitive biography of the now-famous architect and is still the best introduction to his work. This reissue provides Morrison's classic text, completely redesigned and reset in a larger, more modern format. It also offers an assessment of Hugh Morrison's ground-breaking research, in Timothy J. Samuelson's Introduction, and, most important, an authoritative revision of the chronological List of Buildings, including corrections of the data in light of six decades of research. The most complete and up-to-date summary of Louis Sullivan's work, both built and unbuilt, the Building List contains information on buildings discovered since the original publication, incorporates new information on specific buildings, and notes the status of buildings demolished since first publication.
