Architecture Foundation (CAF) Walking Tour: Daniel Burnham: Architect, Planner, Leader

Excerpt of the Tour Description:
The career of Daniel Burnham coincided with an era in which Chicago architecture evolved from small buildings with load-bearing walls to soaring steel-frame skyscrapers. It spanned a period when Chicago was the fastest-growing city in the world—so fast that many demanded a plan to manage its unplanned growth. This walking tour of the Loop stops at some of Burnham’s best-known landmarks as well as lesser-known designs.
Along the way, learn about the man behind the 1909 Plan: his partnership with John Wellborn Root; his work with Charles Atwood, Ernest Graham and others; and the impact of the 1893 World’s Fair on his work and life. This tour explores all facets of Burnham’s legacy–as an architect, as a planner, and as a leader in Chicago, the city he cared about most.
