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.

UPDATE*: XTEN Designs New Boutique Hotel for South Park in Downtown LA

Los Angeles-based firm XTEN Architecture has revealed its plans for a new hotel in the revitalized Downtown Los Angeles neighborhood of South Park (the new hotel will be built blocks away from LA Live and next to the Luma tower). XTEN conceived the overall structure as a concrete monolith, with numerous, expansive portals to provide visual access to the cityscape and landscaping. The 65,000-square-foot hotel will include two subterranean bars, a restaurant, and a rooftop terrace with the obligatory infinity edge pool. A post on ArchDaily was the first to share the news.
As detailed by the LA Times, the site was once promised for a neighborhood-serving pocket park, but a consortium of local developers bought the property and announced their intentions to transform the property into a boutique hotel back in February of 2012 (the original building is a three-story building completed in 1909 that at one point had a dozen liens and competing parties claiming to hold the title). Back when they bought the property in February, the developers claimed that they would spend $25 million rehabbing the site.
