The Archimedia Workshop

Produced by the Archimedia Workshop, the 2010 film "Make No Little Plans" explores the life and legacy of visionary architect and city planner, Daniel Hudson Burnham (1846-1912).  A century ago, as Chairman of the McMillan Commission, Daniel Burnham helped develop a plan for Washington, DC that shaped the National Mall that we enjoy today. As America’s “front yard,” the National Mall is the site of some of the most significant civic, cultural and political gatherings in the nation’s history. Burnham also developed city plans for Cleveland, Chicago, San Francisco and Manila and Baguio City in the Philippines. Classically inspired and often monumental in scale, his plans sought to reconcile things often thought opposite the practical and the ideal, business and art and efficiency and beauty. At the center of it all was the idea of a vibrant urban community.
