L.A. Daily Mirror Retro Shopping Guide

'Never Built Los Angeles'

Several people have suggested that “Never Built Los Angeles,” which has yet to be added to the Daily Mirror library, would be an excellent holiday gift. The book by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin with a forward by Thom Mayne examines some of the many proposed buildings that never got off the drawing board. In case you don’t know, the history of Los Angeles is full of projects that were developed by various committees and designers and merely gathered dust once they were finished.

“Never Built Los Angeles” can be found at  Book Soup, Skylight Books or Vroman’s (call first to be sure they have it in stock) and is available from Amazon.

    Yesterday’s tomorrow are always fascinating, even strangely nostalgic.
