Never Built: Elysian Park

Hosted by
KCRW’s Matt Holzman has been going behind the scenes to report on some of the projects in the exhibit and why they never got built. One was a huge housing project designed by Austrian émigré Richard Neutra, that was intended for Elysian Park and is now the site of Dodger Stadium. He tells the story of how red-baiting, unfamiliar accents and fears of a community being destroyed conspired to defeat an ideal of decent public housing.
