How Adler & Sullivan’s Buildings Paved the Way for Modern Skylines

The Adler & Sullivan-designed Auditorium Building in Chicago was built 1886 and 1890—with a young Frank Lloyd Wright as draftsman—and is one of the firm’s best-known projects. When completed, it was the largest, tallest, priciest and heaviest building of its time.
