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.

Events: Transit Oriented LA

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will join ULI Los Angeles, a District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), for Transit Oriented L.A., a long-anticipated summit exploring how to dramatically improve transportation corridors. With interactive panel presentations from nationally recognized speakers, Transit Oriented L.A.—or ToLA—will expand the traditional emphasis on individual transit stations to a bold transformation of corridors to achieve a truly transit-oriented Los Angeles. 

At ToLA, ULI-LA will present the results of two groundbreaking studies. The Corridor Project, funded by a ULI Foundation Urban Innovation Grant, focuses on linking stations and improving streetscapes. The Building Reuse Partnership, with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, demonstrates how to revitalize neighborhoods by reusing older buildings.

“These two pioneering studies combine as a blueprint for uplifting entire communities,” said ULI Los Angeles Executive Director Gail Goldberg. “We know that vacant or obsolete buildings can be transformed into creative office space and other economically vibrant and environmentally sustainable uses. We also know that improving transportation corridors is key to enhancing livability around transit stations. Together, these studies re-envision today’s development and tomorrow’s mobility.” 

Specifically, the Corridor Project, funded by a ULI Foundation Urban Innovation Grant will:

  • Expand the planning agenda from individual transit stations to corridors that strengthen and connect communities.
  • Shift the public dialog from single developments to broader urban design issues.
  • Focus on linking stations, improving access to transportation, and creating walkable and aesthetically pleasing streetscapes, so that individuals and communities can enjoy greater benefits from transit systems. 

The Building Reuse Partnership, with the National Trust for Historic Preservation will:

  • Provide a plan to increase adaptive reuse in the City of Los Angeles.
  • Demonstrate how to spur economic recovery, create jobs, reduce carbon emissions and foster sustainable development.
  • Focus on development opportunities for older vacant buildings along corridors.

 Speakers at ToLA will include:

  • Will Fleissig, President, Communitas Development Inc
  • Neal I. Payton, Principal, Torti Gallas and Partners, Inc.
  • Renata Simril, ‎Senior Vice President, External Affairs, Los Angeles Dodgers
  • John Given, Principal, CityBuildAdvisors
  • Melani V. Smith, Principal, Melendrez
  • Jonathan Curtis, Principal, California Golden Fund
  • James Lindberg, Planning Director, Preservation Green Lab, National Trust for Historic Preservation

ToLA is Thursday, October 10, 2013, 7:30-12:30 a.m. at the Japanese American National Museum, 100 N. Central Ave, Los Angeles, 90012. Registration and information is available at www.la.uli.org/ tola/ or by contacting ULI Los Angeles at (213) 221-7827. 

The Urban Land Institute is a nonprofit education and research institute supported by its members. Its mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Established in 1936, the Institute has more than 40,000 members representing all aspects of the land use and development disciplines. ULI Los Angeles has an active membership drawn from the counties of Los Angeles, Ventura, Kern, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, and is composed of groups and individuals united in their pursuit of improving land-use policies.
