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.

Exhibitions: Florentine Sketchbook

By Michael Webb

For centuries, architects sketched their work and recorded their impressions of the places they visited, and the Beaux Arts curriculum was based on a mastery of drawing. Software and digital cameras have eroded that tradition, but a few architects (Frank Gehry and Steven Holl are notable examples) still prefer pen and brush as tools to express their ideas. Andrea Ponsi is a Florentine architect whose watercolors of his native city are on display at the Italian Cultural Institute in Westwood through October 31. The exhibition, Andrea Ponsi: Florence, A Map of Perceptions, was organized by IIC Director Michela Magri, and it provides an insider's perspective on the cradle of Renaissance architecture.

Showroom Spotlight: A New Design Resource Opens in Malibu

Malibu might be known for its extraordinary homes but until this fall, its denizens had to travel east—far east—for design services, furnishings and accessories. That’s changed now, thanks to the opening of Malibu Beach House, a new shop devoted to all things home at the Trancas Country Market, the brainchild of Lisa Houge and Laura Burdge, partners in the design firm Quintessential Designs.

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.
