Reposts should be welcomed. Some image hosters constantly crack up, so it makes sense to have "back-up uploads". Keep them coming, fabulous designs!

It's so inspiring to see what our ancestors created in their minds and with their hands, without all the modern technology we have at our hands.

Empire State Building's dirigible mooring extension.

Quote:
The New York Times reports that in 1929, “Alfred E. Smith, the leader of a group of investors erecting the Empire State Building,” announced that the height of the building would be increased by 200 feet so that a mooring mast for dirigibles could be installed. Smith noted that passengers would exit the airship down a gangplank, and a mere seven minutes later could be on the street, ready to experience everything Manhattan had to offer.

Dr. Hugo Eckener, the commander of the Graf Zeppelin, reports the New York Times, dismissed the project as impractical, noting that dirigible landings required dozens of ground crew, not to mention plenty of rope. “The notion that passengers would be able to descend an airport-style ramp from a moving airship to the tip of the tallest building in the world, even in excellent conditions, beggars belief,” notes the Times.

The Multi-Level, No-Visible-Cars NYC That Might Have Been

Harvey W. Corbett's brilliant plan for a multi-level Manhattan would better serve pedestrians and cyclists

Way back in 1925 Corbett, who designed and loved skyscrapers, gave an interview to Popular Science magazine. They asked him to look 25 years in the future to talk about what NYC ought to look like in 1950, and here are some of his predictions:

Unlike many other experts, Mr. Corbett does not believe that the future will bring the "decentralization" of our big cities. On the contrary, long study of modern trends in architecture, city planning, and business and social life has convinced him that our cities will become more and more crowded.

Check.

...Facing this contingency, he believes, we of this generation should begin now to plan buildings and highways with an eye on the problem of handling people and traffic of the future.

Oh, why didn't they listen to him.p

The streetcar and elevated railway [Editor: Manhattan once had much-used "Els," or elevated subway lines, like Chicago], Mr. Corbett says, will disappear.

Check.

Streets will consist of four or more levels, respectively for pedestrians, slow motor traffic, fast motor traffic, and electric trains, the uppermost level being raised above the present street level.

That would be awesome! Bikes and people in open air, while taxis, Ubers, delivery trucks and subway cars would be underground. Here's a rendering of his concept:



Great blocks of terraced skyscrapers half a mile high will house offices, schools, homes, and playgrounds in successive levels, while the roofs will be aircraft landing-fields, according to the architect's plan.

To be fair to Corbett, 1925 was twelve years before the Hindenburg disaster, in an era when dirigibles were seen to be the future. And for those of you who have had to journey from Manhattan to JFK, how awesome would it be to bike into midtown and take a "spiral escalator" up to your blimp? Sure the air journey would be slower, but it's got to be more pleasant than today's hellish air travel.

Unfortunately no, Portugal is not a country to rebuild things, nor so little to bring back and build old projects.

Hello all, I though I would chime in with one building never built that would have looked great if it was built. This was the winning design for the Arizona State Capitol Building in Phoenix. It was never built due to the lack of interest and money needed to build the building.
