Chicago City Map Plate
The Columbian Exposition was more than just a World's Fair, it served to show the world that Chicago had risen from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire, which had destroyed much of the city in 1871. The devastation wrought by the fire paved the way for the greatest building boom in American history, the results of which were on full display at the Columbian Exposition. The city has since become a breeding ground for great architecture and features some of the tallest buildings in the world.
This unique plate celebrates "Future Cities (Past and Present)" and takes a look at the great city of Chicago, examining the past, present, and future of innovative architecture and design. Key buildings are represented with persimmon icons, while rivers and public spaces are shown in blue and green.
