Abstract: 
"Originally two separate cemeteries - Forest Home and German Waldheim - now merged into one, Forest Home Cemetery, in Forest Park, Illinois, is a public place created for a very specific, utilitarian purpose. But the essence of the environment, its monuments and landscape design, also makes Forest Home Cemetery a place of beauty, peace and distinction."

Plans of Chicago

Catalog Number: 
Book Roche, R. Samuel
Date: 
2009
Edition: 
1st
Abstract: 
"In 'Plans of Chicago,' R. Samuel Roche and Aric Lasher investigate the 'Plan of Chicago' as a design strategy and a point of departure for a new regional planning approach. They illuminate it historical context through a discussion of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition and the 1901 McMillan Plan for Washington, DC, its primary antecedents. Comparing its priorities and strategies with those of earlier and later plans of Chicago -- including projects by Frederick Law Olmsted, Frank Lloyd Wright, Jens Jenson, and Ludwig Hilberseimer -- Roche and Lasher offer a new approach to regional planning that combines the strengths and objectives of these various plans of Chicago.'
