What if LA had five times as much green space? A subway system that spanned more than 100 miles? An airport that looked like this one?

If you've ever wondered these questions and more, then the A+D Museum's highly anticipated summer exhibition, Never Built Los Angeles exhibition, is one you don't want to miss. Curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin, with exhibit design by Clive Wilkinson Architects, Never Built: Los Angeles is the first extensive exhibition to showcase the unbuilt forms that could have radically reshaped the Southern California we know, love, and, let's be honest, sometimes hate. Unlike any other exhibition before it, Never Built Los Angeles asks why does LA attract some of the world's most creative architects only to see so many grand architectural schemes flounder?

On August 22nd, we're hosting an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of the exhibition with the curators. Sam and Greg will share the real stories behind the failed 100 projects by more than 25 architects and practices that will be on display. Afterwards, we'll head to Stark Bar, where we can either drown our sorrows over good ideas lost, or rejoice at bad ideas curtailed forever.
