If Frank Lloyd Wright had his way, Los Angeles would look very different than it does today. Many early proposals for the City of Angels were West-coast versions of New York: Extensive subways, green space linked by parkways, centralized urban space. Never Built: Los Angeles is an exhibit that explores these lost LAs as part of the larger Pacific Standard Time show. The exhibit runs from July 11 to September 15 at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum.
