"I would request that my body in death be buried not cremated, so that the energy content contained within it gets returned to the earth, so that flora and fauna can dine upon it, just as I have dined upon flora and fauna during my lifetime."

"Looking East in the Grand Court." Color plate by Charles S. Graham from The World’s Fair in Water Colors
Source: World’s Columbian Exposition Collection at The Field Museum.

The 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition took place in Chicago. The Architects, Planners, and Landscape Architects who developed the designs for the firm were recruited from Europe. As an emerging industrial city, Chicago was trying to showcase itself as worthy of the world stage. The neoclassical architectural details as well as the layout of the buildings were all inspired by the historic cities of Europe. The idea was, by utilizing well established architectural and design practices, that the ‘White City’ would evoke a sense of permanence in the visitors, almost as if it had always been there. By mixing modern manufacturing techniques, the majority of the buildings in the fair were only temporary structures. The ideals that were rooted in classicism and purity of form sparked a larger city planning movement called ‘The City Beautiful’.

This is one of those ideas where some person was like “Hehe, this might  be silly.” And then struck fucking gold.

This is just great.
