Book Roche, R. Samuel

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.'
