Sullivan church gone

Pilgrim Baptist Church, the original “KAM synagogue”:http://egov.cityofchicago.org/Landmarks/P/PilgrimBaptist.html, has been gutted by fire. This was one of Adler & Sullivan’s most important early works, contemporary with the Auditorium Building and sharing its Richardsonian heft, perfect acoustics, and interiors that blend air, light, and gravity.
