Louis Sullivan Documentary playing at Tivoli Theater

Posted on September 28th, 2010 by

Louis Henri Sullivan, father of modernism, is considered to be one of the most influential architects of all time. In 1891, Sullivan built one of the first skyscrapers in the world, The Wainwright Building in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. Frank Lloyd Wright, who was a pupil of Louis Sullivan, called the Wainwright Building “the very first human expression of a tall steel office-building as Architecture.”  Sullivan also built the famous Auditorium Building in Chicago, Illinois, which was completed in 1889.

Louis Sullivan: The Struggle for American Architecture, a beautiful documentary about the architect’s life and career, is now playing at the Tivoli Theater in Westport.  The film won Best Documentary at the 2010 Kansas City Film Festival. Don’t miss your chance to see this film, visit to see showtimes.
