Daniel Burnham

I  personally believe that Daniel Burnham was one of the United States’ best architect/planner.  For the past few months, I have been taking pictures of his projects as I have passed by.  Here are some of them.

 

Union Station in DC

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The National Mall in DC.  L’Enfant may have laid out the original plan, but Burnham and associates revitalized and extended it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Burnham’s Flatiron building is as exciting today as when it opened in 1902.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sadder is the current state of the Filene’s building in Boston.  A developer took down most of the building, except for the facade.  The recession killed the project.  Hopefully, the project is about to be restarted.
