Metropolis Books Launches 'Never Built Los Angeles'

Never Built Los Angeles, Metropolis Books' captivating new collection of visionary, unbuilt Los Angeles architectural projects, launched this weekend with a corresponding exhibition at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum. On Tuesday, July 30, the Los Angeles Public Library follows up with a (sold-out) panel discussion featuring authors Greg Goldin and Sam Lubell, Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne, landscape architect Mia Lehrer, and architectural historian and moderator, Alan Hess. Featured image, W. L. Couverly's 1959 proposal for the International Marketland mall in Orange County (currently the site of the UC Irvine Medical Center), is reproduced from Never Built Los Angeles, one of the most highly anticipated architecture titles of the year. For recent press, see Arch Daily, The New York Times and T Magazine, to name a few.
