CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 10/20/2016
Join Hennessey & Ingalls Friday, October 28th at 6PM for a discussion and book signing with Greg Goldin and Sam Lubell, authors of the new Metropolis Books blockbuster, Never Built New York, which noted architectural historian Kenneth Frampton calls "a fascinating scholarly tour de force, ultimately paralleling in its brilliant ambition the infinite spectrum of its subject matter."
Seating and space are limited. Please click here to RSVP and reserve your copy of the book.
Never Built New York shows us the visionary architectural ideas of the city's greatest dreamers across two centuries of New York City history. Nearly 200 proposals spanning 200 years encompass bridges, skyscrapers, master plans, parks, transit schemes, amusements, airports, plans to fill in rivers and extend Manhattan, and much, much more.
Fact-filled and entertaining texts by the authors of Never Built Los Angeles, plus sketches, renderings, prints and models drawn from archives across the country tell stories of ideas that would have drastically transformed the way we inhabit and move through the city.
Sam Lubell has written five books about architecture: Never Built Los Angeles, Julius Shulman Los Angeles: The Birth of a Modern Metropolis, Paris 2000+, London 2000+ and Living West.
