Summary "This illustrated book - Beyond Burnham: An Illustrated History of Planning for the Chicago Regionprovides a fascinating account of a century of visionary planning for metropolitan Chicago. From Daniel H. Burnham and Edward H. Bennett's famed 1909 Plan of Chicago to the push for superhighways and battles over urban sprawl, the book showcases an illustrated portrait of the big personalities and the "big plans" they espoused." "The human face of planning appears in the interplay between public officials and citizen advocates. Powerful institutions - the Chicago Plan Commission and Regional Transportation Authority, among others - emerge to promote metropolitan goals. Some efforts succeed while others fail, but the work of planners lives on in efforts to shape new visions for the region's future." "Schwieterman and Mammoser's brisk history, with its numerous maps and historical photographs, will at once entertain, inform, and engage in the spirit of this great metropolitan region." --Book Jacket.
