Unbuilt Los Angeles: Tower of Civilization

Los Angeles Tower of Civilization
1940s Tower of Civilization for a World’s Fair that was never held in Los Angeles

Los Angeles was meant to host a World’s Fair in the 1940s, but World War II got in the way.

The centerpiece of the fair could have been a “Tower of Civilization,” concocted by real-estate developer William Evans and civil engineer Donald Warren.

Almost 400 meters high and 45 meters in diameter, it would have been the tallest building in the world at the time.
