2017 - 2018

The Queens Museum presents Never Built New York, an exhibition of never-realized architecture curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin and designed by Studio Christian Wassmann with support from Gensler. Never Built New York presents plans, renderings, and models from 150 years of visionary architectural and urban designs that never saw reality. The plans are drawn from over 40 different publicand private archives and collections. From Frank Lloyd Wright, to Robert Moses, to Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Never Built New York presents a wide range of architectural styles and periods. Most of these ideas, proposed by renowned architects such as Steven Holl, Sanford White, Louis Kahn, Marcel Breuer, Moshe Safdie, Venturi Scott Brown, Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, and Zaha Hadid, have never been seen by the public and will be displayed together at the Queens Museum for the first time beginning on September 17.
