Abstract:

Tall traces the experiments of the early skyscraper architects, especially Louis Sullivan, the Chicago architect who pioneered a new skyscraper form. Fierce rivals, led by Daniel Burnham, builder of the Flatiron Building, competed with him for favor, money, and power. The progressive designs of the 1880s and 90s once again reverted to historical styles, culminating in the 'Cathedral of Commerce', the gothic Woolworth Tower of 1912. Tall pits the struggle for artistic integrity against the demands of fashion and the client's bottom line.
