This issue presents an overview of the independent practice of the American architect Louis Henry Sullivan. That independent practice, with a duration of almost 29 years, began after the dissolution of the Adler and Sullivan partnership in 1895 and ended with Sullivan’s death at the age of 67. His architectural commissions numbered around 50 and during these final years he also completed non-architectural designs for various and sundry clients, publications and causes. Perhaps most important to his legacy he wrote prolifically during this period as well. Filled with never-before-published images and new scholarship, this journal takes a look at the twilight of one of America's most important architects who planted the seed that germinated into the roots of organic architecture.
