Heinz Emigholz: Architecture as Autobiography


This film shows the last eight buildings Louis H. Sullivan designed and furnished at the end of his career. From one building to the next, both inside and out, he varied and perfected his modular ornamental design in brick, steel, terracotta, glass, ceramics, mosaic, marble, and many more materials.

Our take

From preeminent documentarian Heinz Emigholz’s marvelously contemplative “Architecture as Autobiography” series, exploring some of the 20th century’s most important architects by using the camera to reveal the buildings that define their art.
