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.

LA Archive Gallery presents The New American Porch

Architect Davida Rochlin only started to think about the new American porch after devoting much of her life to pondering the old American porch. She spent her childhood in a Craftsman house that had "all kinds of porches," she said. As a graduate student in architecture at UC Berkeley, Rochlin traveled across the country studying verandas, balconies, stoops, back porches, front porches, sleeping porches, screened porches, wrap-around porches, you-name-it porches -- all for her master's thesis. Fittingly for high summer, Rochlin has returned to the subject with the just-opened exhibit "The New American Porch" in a pop-up gallery in the Barry Building, a Brentwood Midcentury landmark.

The exhibit is open August 6-30, 2010 with an opening reception August 21 from 4-7pm at 11973 San Vicente Boulevard, #101, Los Angeles, CA 90049. The gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm.

Moving Beyond Cars: L.A.'s Alternative Transportation Celebration

Los Angeles might have a car-crazed reputation but this city also has a vibrant community that likes to take bikes, buses and sidewalks, too. So GOOD is teaming up with railLA, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and de LaB for an event that shows how L.A. can move beyond cars. They're holding it at the exhibition LA Beyond Cars: A Global Perspective on Rail and Space which envisions the future of high speed rail in Los Angeles. And they're challenging everyone who attends to use alternative transportation. That's right—the goal is to make this a completely car-free party.

Santa Monica Place Reopened on Friday

After two years and $265 million, Santa Monica Place reopened Friday with thousands of shoppers pouring in to get a first look at the newly remodeled shopping center.

The airy design of the new 524,000-square-foot mall features floor-to-ceiling glass walls in some sections, an upscale tenant lineup that includes new anchors Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom, and a third floor dedicated to an array of food options. Previously an enclosed, fortress-like structure designed more than three decades ago by architect Frank Gehry, Santa Monica Place has been converted to a three-story, open-air shopping center with views of the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica Mountains and Santa Monica Pier.

And don't forget to take a look at The Mannequin Collective, on display through August 22.

USS Iowa Wanted for a Floating Museum in Port of L.A.

The idea to berth the historic World War II battleship, which has recently been decommissioned, in the Port of Los Angeles appears to be gaining widespread popular support within the community, including backing from the neighborhood councils and the area's elected lawmakers. 

But the port's approval is needed before the group proposing the nonprofit floating museum - the Pacific Battleship Center - can submit a formal application to the U.S. Navy for the ship's donation.
