This volume brings together for the first time all the papers Louis Sullivan intended for a public audience, from his first interview in 1882 to his last essay in 1924. Organized chronologically, these speeches, interviews, essays, letters to editors, and committee reports enable readers to trace Sullivan's development from a brash young assistant to Dankmar Adler to an architectural elder statesman. Robert Twombly, an authority on Sullivan's work and life, has introduced each document with a headnote explaining its significance, locating it in time and place, and examining its immediate context. He has also provided a general introduction that analyzes Sullivan's writing style and objectives, his major philosophical themes, and the sources of his ideas. With the help of headnotes and introduction, readers will get a thorough sense of Sullivan's concerns, discover how his ideas evolved and changed, and appreciate the circumstances under which new interests emerged.

This collection is a handy introduction to the full range of Sullivan's thinking, the book with which readers interested in the architect's writings should begin. As a companion volume to Robert Twombly's biography of Sullivan, it gives a comprehensive picture of one of America's most important architects and cultural figures.

This volume brings together for the first time all the papers Louis Sullivan intended for a public audience, from his first interview in 1882 to his last essay in 1924.

From Library Journal:

A Renaissance of architectural history is underway focused on Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright's "Lieber Meister" and a pioneering proto-modern architect in his own right. Recent publications include Robert Twombly's Louis Sullivan: His Life and Work ( LJ 1/86), a careful biography; Wim de Witt's more scholarly Louis Sullivan: The Function of Ornament (Norton, 1986); and Lauren Wiengarden's Louis Sullivan: The Banks (MIT Pr., 1987). The book at hand is a valuable addition to this body of work, making available all of Sullivan's published writings in a single volume. Ranging from the late Victorian 1880s to the Academic 1920s, the collection includes numerous worthy pieces culled from obscure sources. Essential for collections strong in architecture.
