Make No Little Plans: Daniel Burnham and the American City
This documentary film explores the fascinating life and complex legacy of architect and city planner Daniel Hudson Burnham (1846-1912). Burnham developed some of the first skyscrapers in the world; directed the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, one of America's most important shared cultural moments; and planned cities from Chicago to Washington DC to Manila in the Philippines. Burnham was a national figure in urban planning before such a profession even existed. He had a powerful vision of what a city should look like and his ideas inspired the City Beautiful movement that shaped the nation's towns and cities for generations. This timely film will debate concepts of civic engagement and what urban planning means in a democratic society. The film's release will coincide with the centennial celebration in Chicago of his masterwork, the 1909 Plan of Chicago, written with Edward Bennett. Over 200 civic, cultural and educational organizations are participating in these events that will include a wide range of activities and discussions throughout the region. The film is produced by The Archimedia Workshop in consultation with Kartemquin Educational Films.

‘Make No Little Plans’
Tech startup founder and venture capitalist Josh McFarland shares inspirational words from renowned architect Daniel Burnham. “It is as hard to run a company of two people as it is to run one of 200,” McFarland elaborates. “Really bring the full force of everything you have.” He also warns against bringing home all the negativity that comes with startup life and dumping it on loved ones. “Help them believe why this is going to be successful,” he says.

Make No Little Plans: A CONVERSATION IN TWO PARTS: Part 2. Policy and The Invisible City
As more and more people flock toward urban areas, the size and complexity of cities is growing exponentially. As a consequence, the designers shaping the cities of the future must engage with an increasingly challenging set of hypothetical conditions—critical scenarios that remain invisible in the day-to-day lives of today’s inhabitants. In light of the entreaty made by Daniel Burnham (author of Chicago’s seminal modern master plan) to “make no little plans,” how will urbanists, architects, and activists think about creating a habitat that anticipates drastic future change, overcrowding, and climate change? What are the guiding principles in an architecture that is preventative? This discussion will analyze both the extraordinary challenges of designing for unpredictable conditions, accelerated change, and the new opportunities that arise when one takes radical change into account. Rohit Aggarwala Professor of Professional Practice, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University (SIPA) Rohit Aggarwala leads the sustainability practice at Bloomberg Associates and is Professor of Professional Practice in International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. He also co-chairs the Regional Plan Association’s Fourth Regional Plan for the New York metropolitan area. Aggarwala has served as Special Advisor to the Chair of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, developed the environmental program at Bloomberg Philanthropies, and led New York City’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability, which created and implemented “PlaNYC: A Greener, Greater New York.” Aggarwala holds a BA, MBA, and PhD from Columbia University, and a MA from Queen’s University in Ontario.

Make No Little Plans: A CONVERSATION IN TWO PARTS: Part 1. Toward A Plausible Utopia
As the speed of technological innovation accelerates, life in the twenty-first century metropolis is coming closer to fulfilling the predictions of science-fiction writers of decades past, and not always for the best. Many of the most apocalyptic scenarios envisioned by novelists—extreme overcrowding, conflict driven by climate change, the crisis of capitalism, mass uprisings—have also become all too familiar. Could it be that the solutions to today’s challenges are already written? What can architects learn from the wild speculations of their literary heroes? Two of today’s most acclaimed voices from the fields of architecture and science fiction discuss their visions for life in the near-future metropolis. Bjarke Ingels Architect, Founder, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), and Cofounder, KiBiSi Design Group Bjarke Ingels is renowned for his innovative approach to sustainable development and renewable energy, and his acclaimed architectural practice, BIG, operates within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research, and development. BIG was recently selected as the designer of a $335 million storm defense system to defend lower Manhattan from future floods, as well as the new Google campus in Palo Alto, California, in association with Thomas Heatherwick. Kim Stanley Robinson American science-fiction novelist Robinson is best known for his award winning Mars Trilogy (1993–99), in which humans, in light of environmental catastrophe, are forced to colonize the planet Mars. His books address issues revolving around the imminent warming of our planet as well as the dark sides of capitalism and democracy. He has been invited to speak at multiple fiction and science-fiction conferences as well as the “Rethinking Capitalism” conference at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 2011.

The Island Gravesite of Daniel Burnham
The Cemetery of Architects http://www.gracelandcemetery.org/pages/architects.html Daniel Burnham, 1846 - 1912 Burnham, a partner of John Root, became known for his dictum, "Make no little plans." And indeed, he practiced what he preached. He was chief of construction for the 1893 Columbian Exposition, and his Chicago Plan of 1909 is the reason that Chicago's lakefront has been preserved for the enjoyment and recreational use of its citizens and tourists.So it seems fitting that his final resting place is on a pleasant, wooded isle in the lake at Graceland.

EXPO – Magic of the White City (Narrated by Gene Wilder)
Narrated by Gene Wilder, EXPO – Magic of the White City brings the Chicago World’s Fair to life. Experience the world of 1893 through a cinematic visit to Chicago’s Columbian Exposition. Subscribe for more great documentaries! Nearly 28 million people visited the Fair. Dubbed the “White City,” it inspired future innovators like Henry Ford and Frank Lloyd Wright, unveiled the Ferris Wheel and Cracker Jack®, and, in many ways, marked the beginning of the 20th century. Many of the era’s greatest achievements in science, technology and culture were unveiled there. The grounds were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famous for his design of New York City’s Central Park, and constructed under the supervision of Daniel Burnham. The Fair was an engineering marvel. On opening day, President Grover Cleveland depressed a golden telegraph key which sent the first courses of electricity throughout the Fair powering fountains, machines, electric railways and thousands of lights. It was the first use of electricity on such a massive scale. In addition, fairgoers enjoyed the Midway Plaisance where a one-mile boulevard of fun offered camel riding and guilty pleasures such as belly dancing, street fighting and beer drinking. Against the backdrop of 1893’s troubles with workers’ rights, prejudice, discrimination and corruption, the World’s Columbian Exposition cast a brief ray of hope for the future of humanity. Filmed in spectacular High-Definition, EXPO – Magic of the White City immerses viewers in one of the world’s biggest extravaganzas and one of the most unforgettable events in American history. There will never be another event like it… or will there?

My #Hamilton super fan son and I won tickets to see the show in Chicago. #HamFam #HamKids Please see the blog that it inspired here: Let's Make No Little Plans "Make no little plans, they have no magic to stir men’s blood….make big plans; Aim high in hope and work.” Daniel Burnham My son and I just got the opportunity to watch Hamilton in Chicago. We have devoured the soundtrack for months. It is in and of itself awe inspiring in its delivery….of an awe inspiring story. These revolutionary men and women literally ‘turned the world upside down’ with genius, vision and grit. They bravely stood for ideals, imagined a different way, and pursued it with intensity and willing sacrifice. Amazing really. I have often pictured the Founding Fathers as a polite group who sat quietly for artist’s renderings…with handshakes and lofty speeches. But I loved their stage portrayal as a bunch of bad ass, foul-mouthed, passionate collaborators and antagonists, engaged in a decades long brawl of ideas to bring the best possible version of a new nation and idea to life. They saw beyond the status quo and took steps to change it for themselves and future generations. Bringing that story, bringing true revolution, to life could not be told with a standard Broadway formula. Hamilton is ground-breaking with its use of contemporary language and music. I am truly inspired by Lin-Manuel Miranda bravely following his gifts, blazing a new trail, and sharing it with all of us. I honestly had chills through the first act. It was the soaring vocals, coupled with the revolutionary messages held within each piece. I am a huge fan of revolution. One line keeps ringing in my head…. ” We have to make this moment last, that’s plenty. Scratch that, this is not a moment, it’s the movement” “My Shot” Lin-Manuel Miranda Somehow I had remembered the American Revolution as one and done in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence, a moment. But there were years of unrest before and not until 1781 with the Battle of Yorktown that we really won the war. Then decades more to really sift through HOW to pull off a brand new nation. Calling it an evolution is less sexy, but likely more accurate. To me, the pelvic health and fitness community feels like that passionate bunch. As someone who has tried to introduce new ideas and concepts into the conversation, it has at times felt like that brawl of ideas. Each challenge, each question, each disagreement…honed my own thoughts. Each time I thought this is it- this gig, this lecture, this conversation, this well-articulated point, this awesome tweet, this insightful blog….this will turn the tide. They were each, only moments. But each moment a step…on a very long road of step-over-step-over-step. Now, I recognize this is a movement, an evolution and change takes so much time. What I know now, almost 14 years after starting down this road, is that I have only given voice and clarity to the musings of countless practitioners who have come up against walls in care and fitness; against ideas, edicts and regimens that no longer made sense. I am no longer standing alone in this pursuit, not by a long shot. Many have shared with me their own professional skirmishes. Many weary that women still come to them poorly educated about their body and pelvic health, ashamed, and limited by old ideas and fear mongering edicts despite what seems like a long effort online and in-person to turn the tide. But if this story, told beautifully in Hamilton, has anything to offer us, it is that we have only just begun friends, and our efforts will be worth it. Our collaboration, our brawl of ideas, our sharpening of one another, is slowly building a new way for women related to pelvic health and fitness. Be inspired, be refreshed by this revolutionary story. Get out there and be a bad ass, passionate and tenacious collaborator, educator, clinician, and trainer in your community. A foul-mouth is, of course, optional. Let’s ‘make no little plans’…let’s ‘aim high in hope and work’….and let’s keep it up.

Digital Burnham
Any technology creates a new environment, a new set of relationships among people. Marshall McLuhan 1965 Two conditions exist in Chicago, one visible, the other invisible. The visible structure of Chicago is based on a series of urban layers which evolved during the mechanical age and was given a developmental framework based on the Burnham Plan. The other condition, which is profoundly present yet invisible in the urban structure, is the series of connections and effects generated by globalization and the context of digital media and communication. This proposal explores the tectonic and environmental potential of these new relationships. The continuing evolution of information technology and globalization will not replace the need for cities, but will change the physical and social patterns that exist within them. As the individual office becomes virtual and most work occurs at home, the function of the central city will be to provide more opportunities for interaction and fewer private workplaces. There will be a greater need for global meeting places for all scales of interaction. This proposal for central Chicago suggests a layered intervention, which allows existing and new conditions to merge, producing a transformative shift to a new digital age. At the heart of this proposal is an expansive new park network. Sited along the Congress Avenue corridor, the park recalls Daniel Burnham's original concept of a grand boulevard extending from Grant Park and terminating at a new City Hall and large civic plaza. The park becomes a dominant framework of a grand scale public amenity that sustainably merges new virtual and physical urban conditions. Peripheral islands and harbors extend outward to the lake from Queen's Landing and parkland bridges westward to the city center over Lakeshore Drive and along Congress Avenue. Sunken within the lakebed, and surrounded by parkland in order to not be visible from the city, are the runways and terminals for an international airport. In contrast to current proposals of a third Chicago airport being located in Peotone or Kankakee, approximately 45 miles away from the city, an airport located close to the heart of the city is a sustainable proposition that offsets the negative effects of suburban sprawl, traffic congestion and the massive infrastructure demands of a remote proposal. The urban airport encourages densification of the city's core in a socially and environmentally conscious manner. Chicago has historically been a commercial marketplace, this proposal suggests a new marketplace, a global marketplace of ideas. By lowering Congress Avenue below ground and creating a multimodal transportation network side by side with a new underground airport concourse, there is the opportunity to integrate a variety of above ground elements that serve the general public and create a new typology of globally interactive physical spaces. A series of three tower types are integrated along the park network: community towers, park towers and energy towers. The community towers would be configured to reflect the new workplace and social networks. Instead of ground level public lobbies with private office plates above the towers are stacked public ground planes creating a series of public forums a vertical village of enclosed meeting spaces and outdoor terraces. The park towers are vertical open space extensions of the current area around Grant Park providing new multi-level outdoor recreation and green spaces. The energy towers intermix occupiable floor plates with wind turbines and solar cells that take advantage of the unobstructed nature of the lake environment and contribute to energy production. Located at the western end of the park is a media plaza and a new city hall. The plaza and the city hall functions below it would be a combination of landscape and e-scape a superscale urban event. Its shape is an electronic version of Richard Serras Tilted Arc, whose removal from New Yorks Federal Plaza in 1989 precipitated a debate about the meaning of art and public space. Two monumental video screens would enclose the plaza space, stimulating a participatory discourse about democracy and the public environment.
