Inhaltsangabe: Dust jacket notes: "The extent and quality of the loss to America and its architecture may never be known, but this is known: the rarest phenomenon of all in America, a genius in the arts, was not called upon to create or build, but sat idly in his office for the last twenty-five years of his life, sketching, writing, reading, and doing almost no architectural work. As Professor Bush-Brown writes in the introduction to his study: 'Only the heroic scale measures Louis Sullivan....He determined to seek the forces at work in his own society, lead them toward humane ends, and express them in the plastic, rhythmic fluency of buildings. That his vision excelled his accomplishment was a hero's fate; that his prophecy went largely unheeded and unrewarded gave tragic scope, not to himself, but to his purpose....' His ideas highly incompatible with those of his times, Sullivan, single-handed, tried to fight the purveyors of cultivated taste and the misappliers of archaeology. With their architectural display at the Chicago Fair of 1893, they managed to choke off the only creatively original architecture in the United States, developed by the Chicago School of Architects with Sullivan as its foremost member. Interestingly enough, Professor Bush-Brown points out that 'No one realized Sullivan's meaning better than Thorstein Veblen, whose The Higher Learning in America adopted Sullivan's philosophy of architecture as a basis for criticizing the extravagant and wasteful irrelevancies in the Gothic buildings erected for the university of Chicago.' What Sullivan did accomplish is amply illustrated in this essay, and described by Professor Bush-Brown who clearly explains the frequently misunderstood organic principles (- form follows function -) manifest in Sullivan's writings and buildings...." Over 80 pages of reproductions including photographs, plans and drawings, in black and white.
