So little is known about the architect of Chicago's Drake Hotel and many other important and famous public buildings and residential landmarks. They include his creation of East Lake Shore Drive with Chicago's Drake Hotel, the Edgewater Beach Hotel, the South Shore Cultural Center, the Blackstone Theater, and the Blackstone Hotel (now the Merle Reskin Theater). We strive to revive Benjamin Marshall's dialogue on the civic responsibility of the urban architect and the role of architecture, planning, and design in the urban environment and in society as a whole.
The Benjamin Marshall Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. All donations to the Society are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
