About the Book
Never Built Los Angeles is a treasure trove of more than 100 visionary works that only saw the drawing board. These marvels include the energetic, the audacious, and the ludicrous. They consist of wholesale master plans; buildings of all types; parks, civic squares, green spaces, and public gathering points; monuments and follies, including some hilariously farcical amusement parks; and transit designs stretching in all directions over land and sea, adopting every foreseeable technology from monorail to flying bus. Through these never-built schemes, authors Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin explore the "what if" Los Angeles, investigating the values and untapped potential of a city that, to this day, is trying to solve the riddle of what it wants to become.
