One and the Same: Burnham the Architect and Burnham the Planner

Daniel Burnham's work as an architect is often treated separately from (and less favorably than) his work as a planner. Yet, he certainly didn't view his work with these two seperate lenses. This Chicago Architecture Foundation lecture connects his architecture and planning legacies through an examination of his use of public space.

For more information and insight on Daniel Burnham and how his ideas influenced the region, explore Chicago Public Radio's coverage as part of the year-long series, Chicago Matters: Beyond Burnham.


Recorded Wednesday, May 27, 2009 at Chicago Architecture Foundation.
