Dream City 300 Piece Puzzle
The World’s Columbian Exposition transformed the city of Chicago in 1893. The Columbian Exposition, also known as the Chicago World’s Fair, was located in Jackson Park, at the current site of the Museum of Science and Industry and the Midway Plaisance.
The Exposition planners wanted to showcase the nation and Chicago’s international stature just 22 years after much of the city had been destroyed by the Great Chicago Fire. Daniel Burnham, the fair’s lead architect, oversaw the design and planning of his dream city to erect the fair’s buildings which were to become the White City. After the Exposition closed in late October 1893, almost all of the buildings were destroyed by fire.
A birds eye view of The Dream City that influenced architecture and urban development for decades to come is recreated in this 300 piece puzzle.
