THE REALITY OF THE "UNBUILT"

We've all been there. A project starts out with great promise, then flutters, eventually stalls and finally nose dives into the dustbin of architectural oblivion.  In the end, the only thing left is the work itself: architecture that never made it off the paper.

Yet, the design persists. The shroud of secrecy gives it power. Living in the shadows, the design speaks: let me show myself!

Here are a few dreams that never made it to reality.
