The story of a boy named Tim Samuelson, who became obsessed with old buildings, especially the buildings of Louis Sullivan in Chicago, during the 1960's and 70's when they were being torn down.

Lost Buildings is a collaboration between Ira Glass and graphic novelist Chris Ware: Ira did the sound, Chris did hundreds of drawings. The result is a 22-minute story, with sound and images, that has never been heard on the radio (it was originally produced as part of a live This American Life stage show). The DVD comes packaged inside a beautiful 100-page book, also meticulously designed by Chris Ware, and filled with photos of the Louis Sullivan buildings mentioned in the story.
