Unbuilt SF: The View From Futures Past

The twentieth century saw both a series of ambitious efforts to reimagine the city of San Francisco and the explosive growth of the Bay Area as a metropolitan region. In Unbuilt San Francisco: The View From Futures Past, the California Historical Society and SPUR will present some of the most revealing episodes in these distinct but related streams of civic discourse through projects that were proposed but never realized. Concern with a particular site, problem or opportunity often spans a period of decades and presents a window into the city’s changing attitudes, politics and values. Just like the cities we do build, the cities we imagine and reject reveal the collective creativity of the urban project and the imperfect civics of placemaking.
