Designed by the firm Adler & Sullivan (1891–1892), the Charnley-Persky House, located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, is one of the few extant buildings that displays the combined talents of Louis Sullivan and his draftsman at the time, Frank Lloyd Wright. The house is recognized as a seminal work in the development of modern residential design as well as a keystone in the architectural philosophies of Sullivan and Wright.

“We are delighted to partner with the Chicago Architecture Biennial by opening SAH’s landmark headquarters to national and international visitors during the run of the Biennial,” said SAH Executive Director Pauline Saliga. “Through its many publications and programs, SAH promotes meaningful public engagement with the history of the built environment and its role in shaping contemporary life. We welcome this opportunity to reach new audiences.”
