Eight buildings designed and furnished by famous architect Louis H. Sullivan at the end of his career.
Sullivan’s writings and constructions set out central positions of modernism, including its ambiguity. His organic ornamentation, conceived and created in conjunction with modern methods of construction, was barely noticed in Germany. Although Sullivan’s work was displayed at the centre of the “Exhibition of New American Architects” in Berlin’s Academy of the Arts in 1926, Europeans did not consider Sullivan to be of interest as a theoretician, nor his famous credo „Form follows function“. The film shows the last eight buildings Louis H.Sullivan has designed and furnished at the end of his career.
