The future of downtown Chicago

Blair Kamen is one of Chicago’s major architectural critics/experts. Here he offers six ideas on how Chicago’s downtown “will rise again.” I particularly liked the first point:

“The lesson: Confident downtowns do not panic. They follow in the tradition of Daniel Burnham. They plan. They make big plans, Burnham style. And they make small plans, which wisely recognize that different streets, and even different sections of streets, represent different but interrelated parts of a larger urban ecosystem.”
