Louis Sullivan

City Target, Louis Sullivan building (formerly Carson Pirie Scott)

Louis Sullivan, an American architect, is considered by many as the creator of the modern skyscraper. I’m a fan of his work, particularly the Sullivan Center (formerly the Carson Pirie Scott building), which features an elaborate and whimsical cast-iron entrance.

Recently, Target opened one of its first City Target locations in Chicago’s remodeled Sullivan Center, preserving both the design aesthetic while maintaining the Target experience guests love. My trip to Chicago ended one day before the opening, so I look forward to checking it out on my next visit. And full disclosure: Besides the fact I work at Target, today’s photo is from the vault (2010) but seemed especially fitting today.
