Charting the History of a Landmark: The Charnley-Persky House


This film explores the rebirth of the historic Charnley-Persky House, designed by Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright for Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. Following a restoration by SOM in the 1980s, the landmark property became the home of the SOM Foundation and the Chicago Institute for Architecture and Urbanism. Today, the exquisite building serves as the headquarters for the Society of Architectural Historians.
