Born in New York and raised in Chicago, Daniel H. Burnham is known as one of the founding fathers of the first Chicago School of architecture.
Burnham’s architecture mixed elements of Modernism with a more neoclassical style, and his early sketches for the Flatiron Building included a clock face and a far more elaborate crown at the top of the building
Though Burnham retained overall control of the project, he engaged the architect F. P. Dinkelberg (1859–1935) to carry out most of the supervising work during the actual construction.
After the Flatiron Building, Burnham would continue to work on a series of impressive architectural projects, including a number of major planning tasks for the cities of San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
