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.

Image courtesy Ray Kappe.Over our 15-year history as FORM: Pioneering Design, we've had the chance to interview some legends of design. Our 2008 September/October issue featured an exclusive conversation with the legendary architect Ray Kappe, whose work embodies a particuarly Southern Californian spirit. In the chat, conducted by Danny King, Kappe addresses energy conservation, a topic that's importance was becoming more and relevant to design. Six years on, it's intriguing to see the ideas Kappe has addressed throughout his career have become such imporant and relevant parts of architectural dialogue in the second decade of the 21st century.

Showroom: A New Option for Railings

Iamge courtesy Source Outdoor. If you happen to have 22 artisans—craftsmen, welders, painters—at your disposable, what do you do? If you’re Source Outdoor, you maximize their talents. Last year, the company introduced a new line of umbrellas, awnings and cabanas to great acclaim, and, says Gerald Shvartsman, Source Outdoor's CEO, “We started thinking about things we could do to work inside our spectrum, using the equipment we already had, to meet the needs of the design community.” The elegant solution turned out to be Source Railings, a new line of railings, fences and gates.

Workbook: A Naturally Inspired Venue for Cirque du Soleil

Grupo Vidanta is building a new theater to house its upcoming Cirque du Soleil show, JOYÁ. The theater, designed by architect Arturo Hernandez, takes its cues from its location in the heart of the jungle. Image courtesy Grupo Vidanta.

Later this year, Cirque du Soleil and Grupo Vidanta will be opening a new show and culinary experience on the Riviera Maya. Since Cirque du Soleiil shows often conjure thoughts of Vegas, we were particularly intrigued about the possibility of translating the show experience into a venue in a more natural—read jungle—setting. The new show, dubbed JOYÁ, will live in a 600-seat theater. We chatted with the architect of the project, Arturo Hernandez, who graciously gave us some details on the upcoming project.
