From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia
This article is about Francis C. Sullivan, the architect. For the theologian, see Francis A. Sullivan.
The house in the Sandy Hill neighbourhood of Ottawa that  Sullivan designed for himself in 1913.

Francis Conroy Sullivan (born on July 2, 1882 at Kingston), Ontario; died April 4, 1929 at Phoenix, Arizona) was a Canadian architect.

The only Canadian pupil of Frank Lloyd Wright, he brought the modernist style to Canada, building a number of prominent structures, often in the Prairie Style.

Important examples of Sullivan's work include the Connors house and the Lansdowne Park Horticulture Building at Ottawa, Ontario; Sainte-Claire de Goulbourne, near Dwyer Hill, Ontario; the public library at Pembroke, Ontario; and post offices at Stonewall, Manitoba, and Shawville, Quebec.

Although influenced by Wright, Sullivan's work diverged from Wright's in certain important ways. For example, whereas horizontals predominate in Wright's creations, Sullivan used strong verticals to create tension in his designs.
