Designs for the Norwegian governement building. One wing of the final design ended up being built before construction was halted. A new brtulastic government building was built in the post-war ere next to it (which was made famous by Anders Breivik bombing it). This is a copy of a post by Joamox taken from here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1634930


Unsuccessful proposals:







The two selected proposals: The runner-up was Blå stjerne by Henrik Bull.







The winning proposal was Kosmopolit by Stener Lenschow, chosen for its plan rather than design, which had to be reworked.





Henrik Bull later redeveloped the design.

Toronto planners vision of how the city could be developed taken from the 1929 "Report of the Advisory City Planning Commission with Recommendations for the Improvement of the Central Business Section of the City of Toronto".

Some proposal for a building next to the Old Town Hall at the Old Town square in Prague. I do not know the date behind each proposal nor who architects were responsible for each design.
