The March 9th 2009 issue of the New Yorker contains a very readable essay, which is available online, by its architecture critic Paul Goldberger to mark the centenary of Daniel H Burnham’s Plan of Chicago. The Plan provided the city with a reclaimed lakefront for the public and laid the foundations for what was to become the Loop and the wider Chicago Metropolitan area.
