Louis Sullivan - Seth Carson

Louis Sullivan is an architect that was popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century. He used a nouveau style, often including it to decorate his buildings. These patterns are now his trade mark. He also was an architect during the rise of steel frames, which he included in many of his works, earning him the mantle "The Father of Skyscrapers."He also believed his first purpose in designing a building was usefulness first, then making it attractive. He is credited for coining the term "Form ever follows function." This term became very popular, with most modern architects following that creed.
