Getty Mausoleum

Posted on in Architecture, Monuments

This highly significant work of Louis Sullivan stands in Graceland Cemetery in the Uptown neighborhood. It is said to be an the early example of the Chicago School of architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright described it as “a piece of sculpture, a statue, a great poem.” Perfectly illustrates the architectural concept of “cubic massing”.
