The Architecture and Design Museum's " Never Built Los Angeles" exhibition is filled with dream projects that have lessons for L.A. and its leaders.--Christopher Hawthorne "LATIMES.COM " " Never Built Los Angeles ... a compendium of more than 100 architectural projects - master plans, skyscrapers, transportation hubs, parks and river walks - that never made it off the ground. Edited by former Los Anegeles magazine architecture critic Greg Goldin and Sam Lubell, West Coast editor of the Architect's Newspaper, and accompanied by an exhibition at the Architecture and Design Museum, it's a lavish counter-history of the city as it might have been: a literal L.A. of the mind. "--David L. Ulin "Los Angeles Times " "Never Built Los Angeles" is a lavish counter-history. Greg Goldin and Sam Lubell present a compendium of more than 100 architectural projects that never got off the ground.--David L. Ulin "LATIMES.COM " We see visions that were never realised-- a "bicycle freeway" from 1900, monorails, and people movers. What a different city L.A. might have been, with houses of the hills rather than on the hills, and acres upon acres of parks. Some of the projects are so grandiose you might be glad they were abandoned, but they are all provocative. Seeing them together is a reminder of the power of dreams in a city where dreams can fade so easily.--Edward Lifson "Metropolis Magazine " The Architecture and Design Museum's - Never Built Los Angeles- exhibition is filled with dream projects that have lessons for L.A. and its leaders.--Christopher Hawthorne -LATIMES.COM - We see visions that were never realised-- a -bicycle freeway- from 1900, monorails, and people movers.

Seeing them together is a reminder of the power of dreams in a city where dreams can fade so easily.--Edward Lifson -Metropolis Magazine - Mind-blowing...a majestic dream-book and fantastic roadmap to never-built Los Angeles.--Mike Sonksen "KCET.org " A history of what didn't happen can sometimes be even more revealing and thought provoking than what did. That curious inversion of circumstance fuels Never Built: Los Angeles, a show at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum focused on more than a century of ambitiuous designs, some right on the brink of realization - that never broke ground in the city.--Sarah Amelar "Architectural Record " Pereira & Luckman's original design for Los Angeles International Airport was a single, giant glass - domed terminal. The 1952 scheme never got off the ground. And that's a pity, said Greg Goldin and Sam Lubell, the organizers of "Never Built: Los Angeles," a show of doomed visionary architecture. Given Pereira & Luckman's local influence and the symbolic value of airports, this one " could have set the tone for public architecture afterward in L.A.," said Mr. Lubell, who is the West Coast editor of The Architect's Newspaper and who has written for The New York Times.--Julie Lasky "The New York Times " Los Anegeles is known as a place where anything is possible. But "Never Built: Los Angeles," an exhibition that opens Sunday at the A+D Museum, reveals that for all the architectural gems built in the city, there were plenty of innovative projects - buildings, master plans, transportation scemes and more - that didn't make it past the drawing board.--Brooke Hodge "T: The New York Times Style Magazine " I can't wait for this: an art book featuring more than 400 images that offer a vison of the city Los Angeles never became, in the form of nearly a century's worth of plans, designs and layouts, including the Olmstead Brothers and Bartholomew's 'Plan for the Los Angeles Region, ' a 1930 re-imagining of the city as a whole. Edited by architectural journalists Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin, 'Never Built Los Angeles' is also the source of an exhibition, curated by the editors, that will open this summer at the architectureand Design Museum on Wilshire Boulevard.--David L. Ulin "Los Angeles Times "Reseña del editor:
Never Built Los Angeles explores the ‘what if’ Los Angeles, investigating the values and untapped potential of a city still in search of itself. A treasure trove of buildings, master plans, parks, follies and mass-transit proposals that only saw the drawing board, the book asks: why is Los Angeles a mecca for great architects, yet so lacking in urban innovation? Featured are more than 100 visionary works that could have transformed both the physical reality and the collective perception of the metropolis, from Olmsted Brothers and Bartholomew’s groundbreaking 1930 Plan for the Los Angeles Region, which would have increased the amount of green space in the notoriously park-poor city fivefold; to John Lautner’s Alto Capistrano, a series of spaceship-like apartments hovering above a mixeduse development; to Jean Nouvel’s 2008 Green Blade, a condominium tower clad entirely in cascading plants. Through text and more than 400 colour and black-and-white illustrations drawn from archives around the U.S., Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin explore the visceral (and sometimes misleading) power of architectural ideas conveyed through sketches, renderings, blueprints, models and the now waning art of hand drawing. Many of these schemes – promoting a denser, more vibrant city – are still relevant today and could inspire future designs. Never Built Los Angeles will set the stage for a renewed interest in visionary projects in this, one of the world’s great cities.
