White City, 1893

Daniel Burnham, who helped formulate the Cleveland Group Plan in 1903, was a key architect of Chicago’s White City at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. The central plaza at the fair, pictured here, was called the White City because of its elegant stretch of white, classically designed buildings that were brilliantly lit at night.
