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.

This Thursday: AFLA Salon for New Voices

An Evening with Joshua G. Stein of Radical Craft.

The AFLA SALON FOR NEW VOICES is a forum for individuals & organizations whose unique visions deserve wider public consideration. This year they focus on the ideas of sustainability and social justice and its interplay in the fields of art & design.

Joshua G. Stein heads Radical Craft, a Los Angeles-based research and design studio operating between the fields of architecture, art, and urbanism. Through research into the intersection of traditional craft and contemporary fabrication techniques, Radical Craft examines material behavior and its potential to influence larger patterns of architecture and infrastructure.

At the Salon, Joshua will discuss the role of material, technique, and scale in the design of both the small and the large, from objects to regional planning.
