Overview
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.

All eyes were on Chicago in 1893 when the World's Fair came to town. Just a little over two decades since the Great Fire had ravaged the city, Chicagoans were eager to show the progress that had been made to rebuild -- specifically architectural strides.

This book takes a look at the influence on the Columbian Exposition by building architect Daniel Burnham and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead. The men were commissioned to make the event a memorable one, and their designs for the Exposition are still studied and in use today.
