The public is invited to join Burnham Pavilion architects and other key players for a panel discussion about these two iconic centerpieces of the Burnham Plan Centennial. Daniel Burnham looked to leading European cities such as Paris and Vienna for inspiration when creating his 1909 plan. Zaha Hadid Architects of London and UNStudio of Amsterdam drew from elements of the Plan to produce avant-garde pavilions that contextualize Burnham's vision and provide a 21st-century model for urban architecture.

- Robert Somol, director and professor, School of Architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago
