Sullivan's Banks

2004 Rated NR 1hr 30m

Eight bank buildings constructed in the Midwest by Chicago architect Louis Sullivan, known collectively as Sullivan's Jewel Boxes, are the subject of this engaging documentary that explores Sullivan's use of architecture to inspire and delight. Designed to convey financial steadfastness, each building also invites the eye to revel in its subtle flourishes, especially as contrasted to the surrounding flat Midwestern landscape.
