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.

Shared Space III Circular Bench by Chris Kabel

Dutch designer Chris Kabel designed this circular bench for an installation at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art called Shared Space III. The bench is constructed from one 10 meter wooden beam. Kabel cut the long beam into trapezium-shaped pieces then fitted them back together to form a ring that retains the grain of the wood. These pieces are then held in place by a metal strap.

Ann Gray's Take on the Otis Report on the Creative Economy of the LA Region 

This past Wednesday I attended one of my favorite events of the business year—the presentation of the Otis Report on the Creative Economy of the Los Angeles Region. For those of you not familiar with this annual event, Otis partners with the LA Economic Development Corporation to assess the size, breadth, and impact of the creative industries locally. This year it was held in the theater at the Colburn School downtown. It is always at the crack of dawn and preceded by coffee and pastries, a chance for me to catch up with artistic friends that I don’t happen across the rest of the year. Otis President Sammy Hoi is truly one of LA’s treasures.

Tiger-Stone Machine Offers Time and Labor Efficient Alternative to Brick Laying 

Brick roads are beautiful and durable, but due to the effort it takes to produce them, they are often overlooked as a time efficient option. What once was a labor-intensive, back-breaking job has now become a snap with this automatic Dutch paver laying machine, called the Tiger-Stone. The device rolls out a beautiful and sustainable hardscape, creating an instant road anywhere it travels. While the process may look magical, the secret lies in a smartly designed gravity-based system.

A-cero Architects Design Sleek Sofa for Sancal

Spanish Architecture firm A-cero has consistently produced innovative and beautiful architecture for the modern age. Headquartered on the outskirts of Madrid, A-cero is headed by Joaquin Torres, and was established in 1996. Fifteen years later, the firm has four global offices and a new furniture collaboration with Sancal.

The name of their design is Ace, and it transfers over much of the architectural modernism seen in A-cero’s buildings. There are clean lines and soft edges, but Ace is most similar to A-cero’s distinctive modular style.
