Since land and water traffic both needed throughways, this has meant the design of movable bridges. Land traffic was halted when ships needed to clear the bridge area. The Chicago Skyway in the background was built to be a shortcut from State Street in Chicago to the steel mills on the Southeast border with Indiana. </span></p><br /><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial; background-color: #ffffff; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Transformation Is true of this region on a symbolic level as well as being my artistic media.

It remains an internationally-known architectural treasure in Chicago. A radical departure from traditional Victorian architecture, the structure served as an inspiration to architects such as Louis Sullivan, Mies van der Rohe, and the young Frank Lloyd Wright and helped redefine domestic architecture. &nbsp;Glessner House is located at 1800 South Prairie Avenue, on the southwest corner of Prairie Avenue and 18th Street.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:10pt;"><span style="font-size: 18.6667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">This historic house museum is one of Chicago's most iconic and influential residential structures. &nbsp;H. H. Richardson's last surviving work in Chicago was commissioned by John and Frances Glessner. This urban residential masterpiece's radical design perplexed neighbors but was quickly embraced by architects for its innovative floor plan. With principal rooms facing inward toward a light-filled private courtyard, it helped create a new American style of residential architecture. An important collection of original furnishings features pieces representing the Aesthetic, Modern Gothic, English and American Arts and Crafts movements. Glessner House was saved from demolition in 1966 thanks to preservation efforts that resulted in the creation of both the Glessner House Museum and the Chicago Architecture Foundation.</span></p><h2><span style="font-size: 18.6667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Tour Times: &nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: 18.6667px; font-family: &quot;Trebuchet MS&quot;; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Wednesday through Sunday at 11:30am, 1:00pm, and 2:30pm</span></h2><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.38;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:10pt;"><span style="font-size: 18.6667px; font-family: Arial; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Guided tours are limited to 15 people per tour on a first-come, first-served, walk-in basis.
