Louis Sullivan: The Struggle for American Architecture

Louis Sullivan Cover

This video is a trailer for the film “Louis Sullivan: The Struggle for American Architecture.” Released in 2010, this interesting film discusses Ocean Springs, Mississippi resident Louis Sullivan’s career and  philosophies.   Unfortunately, like most scholarly work on Sullivan, it does not touch on his time in Mississippi, which was the major influence on his life and work from when he first arrived in 1890 until his death in 1924.

  1. Louis Sullivan’s work is amazing, and he deserves so much more recognition than he gets. The woodwork at the Charnley House alone brings tears to the eyes.


  2. Louis Sullivan has created some beautiful structures; this film looks fascinating!
