Never Built: Los Angeles
Panel discussion with Jocelyn Gibbs, Christopher Hawthorne, and Mia Lehrer
Moderated by Alan Hess, author and architect

What might our city look like if the master plans of prominent architects had been brought to fruition? This panel—including  architects, an architectural curator and the L.A. Times’ architecture critic-- looks at those visionary works, which held great potential to re-form Los Angeles, yet were undermined by institutions and infrastructure. Can L.A.’s civic future be shaped from these unrealized lessons of the past?  
Co-presented with the A+D Architecture and Design Museum > Los Angeles
