Plan of Chicago - Paperback Book
Burnham and Bennetts landmark text--published in 1909--revolutionized urban design. Adopted by the city of Chicago, the plan had a major impact on its development, particularly that of the Lake Shore, detailing proposals for circulation, transportation facilities, civic buildings, and parks. This reprint reproduces all 143 plates from the original, 48 in color. It also contains a plate of City Hall, rendered in color by Jules Guerin, that was omitted from the original edition. Kristen Schaffers new introduction examines Burnham's handwritten draft of the book, focusing on those parts that were edited out of the publication, to suggest a reinterpretation of the plan.
