How do you solve a problem like the Chicago grid: Burnham, Wright, Mahon

March 29, 2018

For civic leaders in early 20th century Chicago, few issues seemed as vexing for designers as the city's grid, including the era’s groundbreaking architects Daniel Burnham, Frank Lloyd Wright and Marion Mahony Griffin.
 
The newly restored Unity Temple provides an inspiring setting for How do you solve a problem like the Chicago grid: Burnham, Wright, Mahony, a free lecture presented by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, 7 p.m., Thursday, March 29 at Unity Temple, 875 Lake St., Oak Park, Ill.

Author and Assistant Professor in the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Shiben Banerji will examine how Burnham, Wright and Mahony each defined the problem of the Chicago grid. He will reveal how reflecting on theories developed in the first half of the 20th century can shape contemporary urban planning.
