It is about city making under a stresful natural environment: snow, rain, heat, storms, at the time of the Wolrd´s Columbian Exhibition in 1893, at a time when architects such as Daniel Hudson Burnham, who was the fair´s director, and the builder of many of the USA´s main structures, had a lot of responsibility in city making.
