BURNHAM MEMORIAL COMPETITION

LOCATION: Chicago, IL

Altamanu Inc. was invited to take part in a limited competition to design a memorial for Burnham to be located in the forecourt of the Field Museum. With the relocation of Lake Shore Drive in the 1990’s, the forecourt had been transformed from a parking lot into an undulating green space, designed by Altamanu. Altamanu approached the design by taking Burnham’s stated beliefs and the writings of Swedenborg, Burnham’s spiritual guide.
