For civic leaders in early 20th century Chicago, few issues seemed as vexing as the city's grid. In a rapidly growing and increasingly diverse city, the grid appeared to constrain every best effort to build a cohesive community. In this talk, Shiben Banerji examines how three architects—Daniel Burnham, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Marion Mahony Griffin—each defined the problem of the grid.
