The Burnham Plan Centennial - Bold Plans, Big Dreams

Our History Our Future

The Burnham Pavilions in Millenium Park

Architectural exhibits in Millennium Park designed by London-based Zaha Hadid and Amsterdam-based Ben van Berkel of UNStudio emphasize the importance of boldly imagining a better future for all. Both are intended to echo the audacity of the 1909 Burnham Plan, which proclaimed, “What we as a people decide to do in the public interest we can and surely will bring to pass.”

The Burnham Pavilions will be open and free to the public in Millennium Park from June 19 through October 31, 2009. [MORE]
