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.

Skinniest House in the World

 

 

Construction is expected to begin September of this year on what may be considered the skinniest house in the world. Designed by Jakub Szczęsny of Centrala, Keret House will be 4 feet at its widest and 28 inches at its narrowest.

The house will have a simple tri-dimensional steel frame finished with plywood, insulated sandwich panels and styrofoam covered with concrete cloth. Electricity will be generated from a neighboring building, and the independent plumbing designed after boat sewage technology. To save space, the entry stairs will fold up and flatten, becoming part of the first floor at the press of a button.

The residence, created for Israeli writer Etgar Keret, will be located in a crack between two buildings in Warsaw, Poland in the district of Wola. Because it does not meet Polish building code, Keret House is recognized as an "art installation." However, it will serve as both a home and a space conductive to creative work conditions -- a "significant platform for world intellectual exchange. The house is to be a "studio for invited guests -- young creators and intellectualists from all over the world."

The Arthouse at the Jones Center in downtown Austin, Texas is a renovation and expansion project of an existing contemporary art space. In its modifications, LTL looks to highlight the historical qualities of this cross between a turn-of-the-century theatre and 1950's department store.  The design and expansion of the gallery and office spaces serve to embolden the aesthetics of the art in correlation with the surrounding urban environment.
