  1. I appreciate specially John Vinci’s contributions to preserving the legacy of Louis Sullivan, who in important ways launched architectural and design modernism in Chicago and Europe. In the 1960s and 1970s Vinci worked on restoring the 1889 Auditorium and rescued and reconstructed Sullivan’s masterpiece of design Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room in the Art Institute’s east wing. This is a great undervalued Chicago treasure. In recent years he’s played a role in publishing the late Richard Nickel’s Sullivan work photos, done from the 1950s to the 1970s as much was disappearing. Now the photo books bring Sullivan’s genius back to life.
