Original Hard To Find Frank Lloyd Wright Designed 1892 Garrick Theater/schiller

Original schiller building or garrick theater exterior terra cotta column capital panel featuring richly ornamented repeating flowers designed by louis h. Sullivan or frank lloyd wright. The buff-colored slip gaze ornament was molded by kristian schneider and fabricated by the northwestern terra cotta company, chicago, ills. A collection of garrick theater ornament will be added over the coming weeks. The non-extant late 19th century terra cotta-clad schiller building (later known as dearborn and garrick theater) was designed by the architectural firm of adler & sullivan for the german opera company. At the time of its construction, it was one among the tallest buildings in downtown chicago. The buildings focal point was an elaborately designed 1,300-seat theater noted for its highly organic-themed plaster ornament and remarkable acoustics. Opened in 1892, the schiller theater was originally funded by german investors and was projected to be used for german-language operas and cultural events. One of the more tangible references to its german heritage was a series of terra cotta busts of prominent german figures integrated within the second story arcade. It was briefly known as the dearborn theater from 1898 to 1903, until finally settling on the name garrick theater. After german investors backed out of the project in the late 1890s, it ceased its german performances, and exhibited touring stage shows. In the 1930s the theater was acquired by balaban & katz and subsequently used as a television studio and movie theater. After a long decline that began during the depression, the garrick was razed in 1960 and replaced with a parking structure. The demolition instigated a large outcry and is considered to be one of the first wide scale preservation efforts in chicago. Photographer and historical preservationist richard nickel spearheaded an effort to document and rescue hundreds of architectural artifacts from the building shortly before and during its demolition.
