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.

Showroom: Music to Bathe By

Tucked into Duravit's existing range of mirrored LED cabinets, the company's new Sound System brings a premium audio experience into the bathroom. Image courtesy Duravit.For the last decade or so, our music has easily traveled with us. In the car, at the office, around the house. There is something of a final frontier, though: the bathroom. Given its unique acoustics (and potential for unintentional dunkings), a typical system doesn’t make sense. Enter Duravit. The company has made a name for itself creating innovative products for the modern bath—think the SensoWash Starck shower toilets or the System Tubs that combined jets, LED illumination and a sound module that transforms the tub into an above and below water speaker. With the Duravit Sound System, the company is bringing high quality sound into the bathroom.

Offered neatly packed into the bottoms of the company’s existing range of mirrored LED cabinets, the new system offers two five-watt speakers—and a 25-watt woofer. It’s protected by a permeable textile, which allows the sound out but doesn’t let the water in—given where most of the cabinets will be installed near sinks. The result is an audio product that works perfectly with the unique acoustics of bathrooms. And, with multiple cabinets in a variety of dimensions, there’s something to fit every type of bathroom.

Even better, if you share your bathroom, you can link up to eight devices via Bluetooth, ensuring that you can listen to your music no matter what, just as long as your device is Bluetooth compatible. And, once a connection is made, it will be remain there, making it a breeze to listen to your favorite morning-motivational music and get you ready to face your day.
