New Canaan Library and The Glass House are pleased to welcome curators Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin, speaking about the exhibition Never Built New York, currently on view at the Queens Museum, New York. The event will be held in the Library's Adrian Lamb Room on Tuesday, November 28 at 6:30 p.m., preceded by a light reception at 6 p.m. Please register online at newcanaanlibrary.org.
Lubell and Goldin will discuss this unique exhibition that presents 200 years of visionary architectural and urban designs for New York City - all of which never came to fruition - but are now brought to life through original drawings, renderings, newly commissioned models and 3D visualizations. Never Built New York explores a city where one might live in an apartment that also acts as a bridge support, or travel via a floating airport. Never Built New York is on view at the Queens Museum through February 18, 2018. http://www.queensmuseum.org.
