Movie Info

His acclaimed visionary plan for Chicago was architect Daniel Burnham's career-capping legacy, but "Make No Little Plans" reveals much more about the man, his prolific design work, and his lasting influence. Director McBrien casts a compassionate aura over this personal account of Burnham's life, shaped by the practical tenets of his Swedenborgian faith and fueled by the energy of Chicago's rapid rise from the ashes of the 1871 fire. The film details little-known aspects of the architect's career, as well as his finest achievements including the Monadnock and Rookery buildings, the construction of the 1893 Columbian Exposition, and city planning work for Washington, D.C., Cleveland, San Francisco, and Manila.
