Underway for two years has been a critical consideration of how the Chicago metro area should be fashioned for the future beginning from Burnham’s 1909 Plan of Chicago. Funded by Religion and Innovation in Human Affairs, of Boston’s Historical Society and the John Templeton Foundation, this research project proposes that “Baroque urbanism and Catholic social teaching can help locate the modern metropolis in both nature and sacred order.” The present state of the work will be exhibited and Philip Bess, the principal investigator and graduate director of the University of Notre Dame’s School of Architecture, will present the project. Matt Milliner, Mark Torgerson, Ty Warner, and Christopher Miller will respond as a panel.
