> DESCRIPTION

Chicago-based architects played a leading role in urban architecture and planning in the first decades of the 20th century.

The exhibition Drawing the Future: Chicago Architecture on the International Stage, 1900–1925, on view April 19 through August 11, explores the dynamic conversations between architects such as Walter Burley Griffin, Marion Mahony Griffin, and Tony Garnier and their progessive European counterparts about the building of the modern city.

Curated by David Van Zanten, Mary Jane Crowe Professor in the Department Art History at Northwestern, Drawing the Future features large-scale architectural renderings, plans, sketches and rare books. A full-color publication with original research accompanies the exhibition.
