Louis C. Sullivan designed this masterpiece and it was built in 1904, a new modern design for such a tall building at the time. Let that sink in as you gaze at the terracotta details from the street to the roof line. Bring a pair of binoculars or a good zoom lens on your camera and enjoy the most beautiful building in all of Buffalo

The Guarantybuilding, designed by Louis Sullivan, is truly a gem! The exterior terra cotta ornament is gorgeous. We passed by on a Sunday when, unfortunately the building's interior was closed. Still, just checking out the exterior made my heart sing!

I visited the Guaranty Building museum on the first floor. They did an amazing job detailing the history of the building and Louis Sullivan. I first visited this building more than 25 years ago. Thanks to Hodgkin Russ law firm for sharing the building with the public. It is truly a gem of American Architecture.
