Chicago—City of the Big Shoulders, Talk at Symposium Stuttgart

December 12, 2014

Alex takes part in the 9. Tag der Planung, HFT Stuttgart.
Chicago is the city of big plans as much as it is the city of the big shoulders. These broad shoulders have changed the city way more than big-plan-Burnham ever did. Their form of practice is closer related to what can be described as “monumental subversion” than to any big plan.
