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.

Temporary Beach Volleyball Stadium for 2012 London Olympic Games

Populous, the London 2012 Olympic stadium architect and official architectural and overlay design services provider for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and Atkins, the UK's largest engineering and design consultancy, will transform the iconic horse guards parade in London into an Olympic venue for the beach volleyball, competition taking full advantage of its historic and central setting.

The solutions provided include taking the standard components available for temporary stadiums and creating the same feeling of permanency as the main games venues. Pre-existing modular components will be hired to create a bespoke court. In keeping with both populous and atkins' low carbon ethos, following the games, the venue will be dismantled, leaving no trace on the location, and can be reassembled and used in other locations.

Faustino Winery in Spain by Foster + Partners

London architects Foster + Partners have finished their newest creation, the Faustino Winery in the Ribera del Duero region of Spain. The building is the firm's first winery. It is made up of three arms that each house a different stage of wine production. The structure is made out of Corten steel shingles.

The 12,500 square-metre facility is designed to produce about one million bottles per year. The project began in 2007, and was finished recently this year.
