Description:
Arguably the most influential document in the history of urban planning, Daniel Burnham's 1909 "Plan of Chicago," coauthored by Edward Bennett and produced in collaboration with the Commercial Club of Chicago, proposed many of the city's most distinctive features. Carl Smith's fascinating history reveals the "Plan"'s central role in shaping the ways people envision the cityscape and urban life itself.
His concise and accessible narrative begins with a survey of Chicago's stunning rise from a tiny frontier settlement to the nation's second-largest city. He then offers an illuminating exploration of the "Plan"'s creation and reveals how it embodies the renowned architect's belief that cities can and must be remade for the better. Smith points out the ways the "Plan" continues to influence debates, even a century after its publication, about how to create a vibrant and habitable urban environment.
Richly illustrated and incisively written, this insightful book will be indispensable to our understanding of Chicago, Burnham, and the emergence of the modern city.
