The blog interestingly mentions ‘examples of the connection between the Burnham plans for Chicago and Manila, and between the Vincentian universities—De Paul University, Chicago, and Adamson University, Manila. It includes reflections and observations of professors and students engaged in urban poverty reduction programs coordinated by the Vincentian Center for Social Responsibility in Manila.’

 

Daniel Hudson Burham (1846 – 1912) was an American architect and urban planner. He directed the works for the World's Columbian Exposition in 1892 and designed several famous buildings in Chicago, New York City and Washington D.C. He was well-known and criticized for his neoclassical architectural style inspired by classic Greek and Roman constructions. His greatest contribution was, however, in urban planning which produced with Edward H. Bennett the ambitious 1909 Plan of Chicago, the results of previous urban planning projects in Cleveland, San Francisco, Washington, DC and Manila and Baguio in the Philippines.
