The Architecture of Glessner House

  • Glessner House 1800 South Prairie Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60616 United States (map)

This exclusive behind-the-scenes tour will explore the significant architecture of Glessner House. Controversial at the time of its completion in 1887, it foreshadowed the development of modern residential architecture, and architect H. H. Richardson had a profound impact on architects to follow, including Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. This special two-hour tour will focus on the architecture from basement to attic.  Attendees will see areas not included on public tours as well as objects rarely shown, including Richardson's original sketch.
