I toured this building as part of a tour after taking an Art Nouveau class. The building itself is a massive Romanesque style designed by Louis Sullivan. There are stained glass windows as you enter that are in the Art Nouveau style. The theater itself is quite large. We were fortunate to attend the 125th anniversary of the theater a few years back - quite a history.

Legendary bldg with legendary perfectly design theater when it comes to acoustic. If use to host Chicago Symphony and Lyric Opera. They moved out but their buildings do not have such a great acoustic as this one. Now own by Roosevelt University. You can only see it’s lobby or outside ( unless you are a student if you book a special tour via the owner ).
Louis Sullivan famous architect used to live here in the Tower and I believe he did in here (broke and alcoholic ).
It was built on a floating fundaments so parts of the building dinked down.

If you like architecture, here is another building to add to your list. Now a National Historic Landmark, it opened in 1889. Designed by architects Adler & Sullivan, the young Frank Lloyd Wright was a draftsman on the project. Check out the amazing windows over the doors; fine decorative art. We saw them at night after a concert with light shining through them.

Sono andato a Chicago con mia moglie e mia figlia e abbiamo comprato il biglietto per visitare (12 $ a persona con guida in inglese) l'Auditorium Theatre. Si possono scattare delle foto senza flash, il teatro è del 1889 ed è iscritto nel National Historic Landmark, architetti D. Adler e L. Sullivan.
Consiglio la visita.

Chicago is full of architectural buildings of great significance. This is one of them. It is a massive building that occupies Michigan Ave. and E Congress Pkwy. You can't miss it.

Today known as Roosevelt University, the Auditorium Building by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan was the world's most influential building when it was new in 1889. Its interior decoration set the French and Belgians to adopt new ornament and glass techniques that by 1895 would be called Art Nouveau. Visit the interior by starting on the top floor to see plaster and woodworking and and then walk down the stairs looking at the stained glass and mosaic flooring. The windows are by Healy & Millet a Chicago firm that exhibited at the 1889 Paris World's Fair (the Eiffel Tower fair). The windows were written about in the French press and many artists/architects went to see them. The window glass came from Kokomo, Indiana. Kokomo sold lots of glass to Europe. It was a new style of glass and it became very popular in Europe from 1894-1915. Take the Auditorium only tour too, to get a full appreciation of the importance of the building.

Chicago is a city full of beautiful old historic buildings and the Auditorium Building is one such place. I didn't get to see a show here but the building itself is fantastic.

Louis Sullivan is America's greatest architect and he trained Frank Lloyd Wright. This building has exquisite design, floor tile work, stained glass, a gilt ceiling, and is the perfect bridge between the 19th and 20th centuries. It was the tallest building of its time and an engineering marvel as well. It has perfect acoustics, amongst the best in the world. The tours are very affordable, or try to hear good music here. On the other side of the building is Roosevelt University. You can easily visit its beautiful lobby and, if you are clever, its second floor, Ganz Music Hall on the 7th Flr , the barrel vaulted library on the 10th floor with its exquisite lake views and partially intact woodwork on its south side, and stained glass works hung between the 10th and 9th floors. I took college classes in this building purely for its beauty.

Louis Sullivan, mentor to Frank Lloyd Wright, created a masterpiece I would place in the upper echelons of architectural achievements. While tours are available, it is best to plan your visit around an event...The Joffrey Ballet is housed there, but there are other music and theatrical events throughout the year. It is a shame to just walk thru on tour as it acoustic qualities are still unsurpassed and it is a joy to watch any performance there. The early use of electric lights is amazing. You will see many elements that show up repeatedly in Wright's work...the beautiful arches, the arts and crafts touches. In all my travels there is nothing quite like it.

See the wonderful Louis Sullivan lobby (the original hotel lobby from the multi-purpose building that now serves as the front door of Roosevelt University) Beautiful mosaics and plasterwork, all original to the building. A great free-peek for architecture enthusiasts.
