The A+D Architecture and Design Museum in Los Angeles announces an upcoming exhibition that imagines the star-struck city that might have been. "Never Built: Los Angeles," on view July 28 to September 29, 2013, curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin, and designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects digs up a number of sexy urban projects that didn't make it past the conceptual phase.
Renderings, models, video, and other media will convey visitors to this high-design neverland and perhaps embolden city planners to embrace more ambitious projects in the future. Unrealized schemes include such talent as Frank Lloyd Wright, Olmsted and Batholomew, John Lautner, OMA/Rem Koolhaas, and Jean Nouvel. Shown is the unbuilt Downey Office Building 2009 by B+U Architects.
