|Chicago Metropolis 2020
This image appears on the cover of The Metropolis Plan: Choices for the Chicago Region, a booklet summarizing the major goals and proposals discussed in much greater detail in Chicago Metropolis 2020: The Chicago Plan for the Twenty-First Century. While this image does not have a precise equivalent in the Plan of Chicago, it evokes the Plan's bird's-eye views of the city. A significant difference is that the vantage here is from a greater distance than any of the Guerin drawings, reflecting Chicago Metropolis 2020's emphasis on the broad region that includes Chicago and not just on the city itself.
