Georges-Eugène Haussmann’s radical remaking of Paris during the 1860’s had an obvious and profound influence on the 1909 Plan of Chicago prepared by Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett. Chicago-based architect Timothy Brown, who worked in Paris for many years as director of IIT’s European Study Programs, explores the sometimes unexpected ways the respective plans continue to inform contemporary urban planning efforts.
