Ganz Hall, housed in the Auditorium Building on Roosevelt University’s Chicago campus, was originally designed by Louis Sullivan and constructed in 1890. The once grand 4,000 square foot recital hall featured intricate plaster and carved wood ornaments, lavish stained glass windows, and cast iron electric chandeliers, all of which ultimately fell into disrepair. Laurence Booth, Booth Hansen, principal/director, will discuss the award-winning restoration of one of Chicago’s most stunning interior spaces.
