Burnham 2.0: Judges Panel

Burnham 2.0: Judges Panel

A distinguished panel of architects and designers from around the world will discuss and critique the various works on display in the Chicago Architectural Club’s Burnham 2.0 exhibition at the Chicago History Museum which opens as part of the 2008 Chicago Humanities Festival. The Club will also use this occasion to announce the winner of its prestigious biennial Burnham Prize, for which the panelists will have served as jury.

More broadly the panelists, including Stanley Allen, dean of the Princeton University School of Architecture; Doug Garofalo, distinguished architect and professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago; Elva Rubio, of Bruce Mau Design; Geoff Manaugh, author of BLDGBLOG; Zoka Zola, Chicago architect; and others will consider the prospects for and effects of a new regional high-speed rail network and other potential infrastructure elements on the reshaping of Chicago—and the contemporary metropolis in general.


The program is presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival in partnership with the Chicago Architectural Club and the Chicago History Museum.
