Facts

  • The exterior reflects the internal construction of skeleton steel. Strong vertical lines are created by means of narrow piers and columns, which also allow a maximum of window area and interior light.
  • The exterior surfaces are reddish brown terra cotta, decorated with Sullivan's unique style of interlacing ornament inspired by natural forms.
  • This ornamentation is also used on the ironwork of the elevators and stair grilles, the hardware, and the mosaic ceilings and upper wall surfaces of the first floor corridors.
  • Built as the Prudential Building, this is one of the great buildings of Louis H. Sullivan, a forerunner in the field of modern architecture.
  • The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
