The Auditorium Building

The Auditorium Building

The Auditorium Building is a ten-story granite and limestone building with a seventeen-story tower.

It’s a fun fact that Adler & Sullivan had also opened their offices on the 16th and 17th floors of the Auditorium tower.

The Auditorium Building in Chicago is one of the best-known designs of Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler. Completed in 1889, the building is located at the northwest corner of South Michigan Avenue and Congress Street (now Ida B. Wells Drive). The building was designed to be a multi-use complex, including offices, a theater, and a hotel. As a young apprentice, Frank Lloyd Wright worked on some of the interior design.
