Sullivan's penchant for ornamentation can be seen in the grillwork on the Carson Pirie Scott store (1899), 1 S. State Street.

National Historic Landmark

Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 15, 1975):
Constructed in three stages (1899, 1904, and 1906) the Carson Pirie, Scott Department Store is an original and practical design for a dry goods palace. Louis Sullivan's style of organic ornament is fully developed in this building, which is remarkable for the integration of its horizontal composition and its detail; the 12 story addition (1906) by D.H. Burnham and Company is in keeping with his original plans.

Address:

1 S State St, Chicago, IL 60603
