World's fairs are obvious instances. The 1893 Chicago fair (World's Columbian Exposition) was a marvelous urban design example, well documented in photographs as well as textual commentary.

Many grand country villas built a century ago have disappeard due to change of conditions. Some (e.g. Whitemarsh Hall) were of high quality architecturally and had remarkable gardens. I've linked Gerry Serianni's fine web site for that example.
