This exclusive tour, offered for the first time, explores the significant architecture of Glessner House. Controversial at the time of its completion in 1887, it foreshadowed the development of modern residential architecture, and architect H. H. Richardson had a profound impact on architects to follow, including Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. This special two-hour tour will focus on the architecture from basement to attic. Attendees will see areas not included on public tours as well as objects rarely shown, including Richardson’s original sketch.
These tours are part of a series of special programming held in conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, taking place from October 3, 2015 through January 3, 2016. For more information on city-wide events, please visitwww.chicagoarchitecturebiennial.org.
