Completed buildings always represent compromises between the vision of architects and planners and the various competing interests that can see a plan to completion—or not. Unrealized plans, therefore, lend insight into the potential that underlies a city’s built environment. “Reinventing Newark” recovers some of the plans for city projects that were never realized. In doing so, it reveals hidden facets of the city’s history—ulterior expressions of change in a persisting civic imagination.
