Notes NOTES: This department store, designed by D. H. Burnham & Company in 1892 for Marshall Field, was renovated in 1991 by HTI/Space Design International. The 11-storey central atrium with panoramic escalators and the reproduction Beaux-Arts cast-iron fountain (a recreation of Daniel Burnham's original design for the store) were added during this renovation.
