Never Built: Los Angeles will explore the &ldquo\;what if&rdquo\; Los Angeles.  \;A thorough com pendium of projects that only saw the drawing board\, the exhibition asks: Why is Los Angeles a hotbed of great architects\, yet so lacking in urban i nnovation?

\n

Co-curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin and designed by Clive Wilki nson Architects\, the show looks at visionary works that had the greatest p otential to reshape the city\, from buildings to master plans\, parks to fo llies and transportation proposals any of which could have transformed both the physical reality and the collective perception of the metropolis. The stories surrounding these projects shed light on a reluctant city whose ins titutions and infrastructure have often undermined inventive\, challenging urban schemes.

\n< p class="content_left" style="text-align: justify\;">Many of these schemes&mdash\;promoting a denser\, more vibrant c ity&mdash\;still have relevance today\, and many could inspire future proje cts. The projects beg the question: Why were they never built? \;

\n

The show will contain dozens of illustrations exploring the visceral (and sometimes misleading) power of architectural ideas conveyed through renderings\, blue prints\, models\, and the lost art of hand drawing. Through these images\, and accompanying narratives\, the city is interpreted in a new light\, with discarded projects understood as art. Never Built probes these sc hemes\, setting the stage for a renewed interest in visionary projects in L os Angeles. \;
