MAKE NO LITTLE PLANS
A city in the nineteenth century was a crowded, dirty, ugly place to be. Having proved his talent at designing buildings, Daniel Burnham, broke the mold by dreaming up beautiful and efficient designs for entire cities, contributing to the birth of modern urban planning. There are several cities today that still bear the mark of his plans. This documentary examines his life, including his planning of the gargantuan World Columbian Exhibition in 1893.
Prior to the film, opening remarks will be made by Kristen Schaffer, Associate Professor of Architecture at NC State University.
An event reception with a cash-only bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.
