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.

Balancing Barn Offers Cantilevered Rental Home in the English Countryside 

Two years ago, Dutch firm MVRDV was commissioned by Living Architecture, a British organization that promoted the exposure of modern architecture to the general public via holiday rentals. Half of the 30-meter building, located in Suffolk, is suspended in mid-air cantilevered over a steep slope. Because of the slop, from the inside, it seems as though you’re on ground level and tree-height at the same time.

Amsterdam-based architects UNStudio debuted this table at Interieur 2010, the Design Biennial in Belgium. UNStudio designed two tables for the Dutch brand Prooff. One table is oak with one orange upholstered seat, and the other is longer and white, with two purple upholstered seats. The tables are supported by a web of thin steel legs.

LA's newest museum is the permanent home for the Holocaust Museum, a 50 year-old institution. The striking building designed by Belzberg Architects features a generous green roof that acts as an extension of the adjacent Pan Pacific Park. The project was also designed to express one of the darkest moments in human history - a buried organic form greets visitors as they descend into a unique museum space that memorializes those who died and survived the holocaust.
