Barton Myers: Works of Architecture and Urbanism
September 12–December 12, 2014
With works as varied as a Vidal Sassoon Salon from 1968, the U.S. Expo Pavilion in Seville, Spain in 1992, and his steel houses, this exhibit will present an overview of almost fifty years of architecture. Barton Myers first attracted attention in the late 1960s for his civic buildings and urban projects in Canada. He returned to the United States in 1984 to open a Los Angeles office and became known for his performing arts centers, campus buildings, and steel houses among many projects. 

The Barton Myers papers were donated to the Architecture and Design Collection of the AD&A Museum, UC Santa Barbara in 2000.  The archive covers Myers’s work from 1968 through 2002 and includes sketches and computer drawings, watercolors, images by well-known photographers, detailed study models and models of blocks-long sections of cities, as well as research notes, correspondence, lectures, and writings.

BIG Makes More News in Park City AND Vancouver

Following recent news of Bjarke Ingels Group’s Valentine’s Day installation in Times Square comes another spat of big news from the Danish architecture firm. First came the announcement that BIG’s design for the Kimball Art Center had been selected for construction of the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah. The winning design triumphed against such distinguished competitors as Will Bruder, Williams + Tsien, Brooks + Scarpa, and Sparano + Mooney. The video above includes a quick description of the design by Bjarke Ingels himself, who says that the Kimball design “merges the natural and the artificial.” The project will begin construction in 2013 with an expected completion date of 2015.

The Beach & Howe project actually comprises two buildings, according to Vancity Buzz: The 49-story “residential tower with a 9-storey podium…includes market rental housing, commercial uses, and a childcare facility.” The project also includes a six story building that will include retail (i.e., grocery store, drugstore and liquor store) and office space. The project will total 653,046 square feet.
