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.

Arts and TOD Project Mixes Generations, Incomes and Uses

Long Beach Senior Arts Colony – part of the multi-phase Long Beach + Anaheim development – has won Project of the Year from the 2010 Sage Awards. This “on the boards” complex combines a mixed-use, mixed-income, multigenerational community into a transit-oriented development (TOD) at Long Beach Boulevard and Anaheim Street. The versatile design – by Studio One Eleven – maximizes proximity to two major transit lines: the Blue Line light rail and Anaheim Street bus line (the most-used bus line in Long Beach). Enhancing its transit-intensive location are car-sharing, bike facilities, priority parking for hybrid cars, and a new bus/light-rail stop.

Before you go, check out these summaries on the featured homes:
THE CARILLO RESIDENCE - Pacific Palisades, CA
Designed By Steven Ehrlich, FAIA - EHRLICH ARCHITECTS
The Carrillo Residence occupies a long narrow site on the rim of Santa Monica Canyon. Designed for a young couple with two children, the house addresses the formal and informal needs of the family while taking advantage of the Southern California climate and views. The orientation of the house reinforces the geometry of the site. A series of stone masses define the ground floor program while a floating white box houses the bedroom wings and slides over and past the stone to gesture towards the canyon and the views.  The glass living room volume sits at the far end of the site adjacent to the main bar of the house and divides the outdoor space into two distinct courts. 

LA MESA HOUSE - Santa Monica, CA
Designed by John Dutton, AIA, LEED AP - D U T T O N  a r c h i t e c t s
The original front of a 1924 Santa Monica historic landmark- an early adobe house by John Byers- was restored; the rest of the house was demolished and a new courtyard house built behind the historic front. The architectural ‘completion’ of the house allowed for interiors to be contemporary, and for the design and detailing to become more modern toward the rear of the site, where a detached guest house and an infinity-edge lap pool provide views to the Santa Monica Mountains and the ocean.  The emphasis was on integration of interior rooms with both the central courtyard and ancillary exterior spaces.  Research from Byers’ archives as well as forensic analysis of the original house provided clues as to the materials and finishes that were used for the rest of the house.
