Part of our fifth series of City Plates. This collection celebrates "Visionary Thinking" and takes a look at four great cities--Paris, Chicago, Montreal and Mumbai, examining the past, present, and future of innovative architecture and design.
Chicago - The Columbian Exposition was more than just a Worlds Fair, it served to show the world that the city had risen from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire, which had destroyed much of the city in 1871. The devastation wrought by the fire paved the way for the greatest building boom in American history, the results of which were on full display at the Columbian Exposition. The city has since become a breeding ground for great architecture and features some of the tallest buildings in the world, such as Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower).
The City Plates measure 12 across. Key buildings are represented with persimmon icons, while rivers and public spaces are shown in blue and green.
