Edgar Miller Legacy advances the appreciation of the life, philosophy and work of Edgar Miller.
The last of Miller’s architectural works, this building was completed in 1936 and designed by Andrew Rebori, Miller’s long-time friend and architectural consultant. Miller designed the façade and installed numerous decorative elements from bas relief plaques to stained glass windows to carved doors and gates. There are 13 units.
The building is one of very few “art moderne” structures in Chicago, and it is a city landmark. Inside the gate you can see the quiet, enclosed courtyard which Miller had experimented with on his earlier projects.
