Unbuilt San Francisco: Ambition and Imagination
Unbuilt San Francisco at the College of Environmental Design will feature renderings and models of buildings that never came to be, such as a residential resort on what are now the ruins of Sutro Baths, early versions of landmarks like Coit Tower, apartments by Mies van der Rohe, several acclaimed but unbuilt recent projects by designers such as Renzo Piano, Cesar Pelli, George Hargreaves, and SOM, and rhetorical visions that challenge viewers to imagine new ways of urban life. The exhibition includes treasures from archival collections, architecture firms, and private architectural collections.
Unbuilt San Francisco will be on view in the Wurster Hall Gallery from September 14 through November 8, 2013.
Please join Exhibit Curators John King and Waverly Lowell
