Louis Sullivan's Chicago : An Architecture Study of Urban Geography

.......JUST UPDATED(7-07)my latest trip was lucky - the Most Beautiful, Auditorium Library was open for shooting (closed the initial shoot)!!
.......I shot these for a graduate study focusing on Chicago's Urban Geography; subtopic, 'the architecture of Louis Sullivan'. This project began moderate, but evolved into an enormous time and money black hole! Also complicating my task was the walking of many miles in ‘very tough’ (like 45th st south)urban neighborhoods in town with 6K of photo equipment on my back (designed as a ratty looking book bag)! I hope some might enjoy this type of a project - is why I am posting this data as a gallery....
........Anyhow - Louis Sullivan’s story is great then sad. Mentor to Frank Lloyd Wright, ‘father of the skyscraper', and a brilliant architect who created many beautiful structures. In the end Sullivan was a fallen man, dying alone, almost penniless in a cheap Chicago south side hotel. I knew nothing about Sullivan before this study; but my respect grew greater at each local. The last place I shot was his simple gravestone. While standing over his gravestone, the last scene of the film ‘Alexander’ flashed through my mind: Anthony Hopkins while sifting sand through his hand recollected Alexander and his accomplishments, uttering: “Men Reach & Men Fall, Men Reach & Men Fall”.
.......The first few pictures are ID location OrthoImages. ORTHOGRAPHIC MAP NUMERAL KEY:
1 = Eliel House; 2 = Pilgrim Baptist Church; 3 = Holy Trinity Cathedral; 4 = Charnley House;
5 = Ryerson Tomb; 6 = Sullivan Gravestone; 7 = Getty Tomb; 8 = Kaufman Store; 9 = Krause; Music Store; 10 = Dexter Building; 11 = Auditorium Building; 12 = Old Chicago Stock Exchange; 13 = Gage Group; 14 = Jewelers Building; 15 = Haskell, Barker, Atwater Building;
16 = Carson, Pirie, Scott Building...
.......Use of these for any Academic purposes only is ok, but please cite me (*) or give credit(Jon Cook @ FAU Geo-Dept). If anyone wants any larger versions (5D files)or have questions please email me….. Hope this moves some to explore into Sullivan’s life and other facets of urban architecture – as it has me…
* items not mine: maps came from Mapquest; orthos came from USGS-seamless site; Old Stock Exchange jpeg is a scanned postcard (#RX18725 noncited ) I bought from the Art Institute as the structure was covered for repair; and the "Auditorium Original" jpeg is a Rand McNally 1893 3-D map…
