The “Never Built” world so far includes Never Built Los Angeles, a book and exhibit, and the book, Never Built New York. Now, the Queens Museum hopes to continue the exploration into the New York that might have been with a Never Built New York exhibition and has launched a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $35,000 to make it happen. The exhibition, curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin and designed by Christian Wassmann, will explore 200 years of wild schemes and unbuilt projects that had the potential to vastly alter the New York we know today. Opening September 2017, the crowdsourced funds will bring the show to life for the first time with original drawings, renderings, newly-built models, and 3D visualizations. As an added bonus for supporters, the available rewards for contributing to the Kickstarter include an exhibition print, special access to the exhibit, and even one of the 3D printed models from the exhibit. The funding will go to support the gallery installation, showing rarely-seen models, drawings and sketches--including more than seventy models to be installed on the Museum’s Panorama of the City of New York model.
