Chicago architect David Woodhouse, who shaped the visitor pavilions at Buckingham Fountain, was named the winner Wednesday of a controversial design competition for a memorial to Daniel Burnham that would celebrate the legacy of the great Chicago architect and urban planner.

Woodhouse’s plan would reshape the grassy, tiered open space of Chicgao’s Museum Campus, just north of the Field Museum, with a gently sloping lawn, a diagonal pathway and a variety of stone walls, including two set at right angles that would form a ceremonial “corner” (left) honoring Burnham’s influential Plan of Chicago.
