The <a href="http://aplusd.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Architecture and Design Museum, Los Angeles</a> poses that question--and what could have been--with their upcoming exhibit "Never Built: Los Angeles", which opens this Saturday.</p> <p> Co-curators Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin worked with Clive Wilkinson Architects to bring to life an intriguing, alternate vision of Los Angeles.
