This seminar highlights the fascinating history of architecture in Chicago’s parks. From Victorian refectories and conservatories to the world’s first field houses and Art Moderne bathing pavilions, Chicago parks feature many of the city’s most significant buildings and structures. This course explores the contributions of renowned designers including Daniel H. Burnham, William Le Baron Jenney, and Dwight H. Perkins, as well as that of talented but lesser-known architects such as Clarence Hatzfeld and Emanuel Buchsbaum. Reading assignments for the first class will be emailed upon registration.
