New Models for Cities
This chapter examines how the classicizing Beaux-Arts architecture at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago inspired Southland communities to fashion civic identities. California civic leaders embraced its model in the design of their public buildings and administrative or civic centers (e.g., Pasadena, Long Beach); in some developments, planners adapted its principles in an idealistic attempt to harmonize public and private, urban and rural by embracing the principles of the City Beautiful Movement (Beverly Hills, Palos Verdes), and on a smaller scale but no less significantly, the region’s colleges and universities incorporated the Movement’s principles into their campus plans (UCLA, USC).
