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.

FORM Tech: 5+design Goes 3D

5+design's models, such as one for the China World Trade Center, blend cutting-edge technology with more traditional methods. Image courtesy 5+design.

For Hollywood-based 5+design, a global creative design studio, projects skew big and complex. Think retail and restaurant spaces for one of Royal Caribbean’s largest ships, the interiors of Russia’s largest shopping mall and the China World Trade Center in Beijing, home to the country’s tallest office building. Realizing those projects, though, takes creativity–not to mention the ability to harness cutting-edge technologies. For the latter, the firm was an early adopter of 3D printing, which has allowed a new degree of flexibility.

For this month's edition of Wayback Wednesday, we're re-running our January/February 2014 profile of architect Frederick Fisher, who receieved the 2013 AIA|LA Gold Medal. Here, we learn about his journey to architecture, the importance of Los Angeles's storied design legacy in his career and the ways art and artists have informed his work over the years.

By Lisa Bingham Dewart

When Scott Johnson called Frederick Fisher, the founder and principal of Frederick Fisher and Partners, and said he was nominating him for the 2013 AIA|LA Gold Medal, the architect was completely surprised. “I joked to my wife I had a Sally Field moment,” he recalls. “I was completely taken aback.” But those familiar with his work felt the accolade was well deserved, given his architectural accomplishments. They range from residences to academic buildings and public spaces, all conceived in a practice rooted in a broad cultural approach blending ideas from architecture and art.
