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.

Water Box 

Image: Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe and AssociatesSouth Florida based firm, Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe and Associates recently won third place in the Miami Water Box competition. Their main concept aims to build on the idea that a successful theatre is associated with the strength and quality of the relationship between the audience and the performer.

Cantilevering way overhead, the candela structure, while monumental and fully expressed, falls behind the viewer once they are directing their attention to the stage. The floating stage attempts to add a layer of this water vocabulary by resembling a cube of water. The intention of the cube is to evoke thoughts of the long standing tradition of man-made islands and waterways throughout the bay.

Shenzhen Cultural Center


Mecanoo Architects, a firm based in Delft, Netherlands, won the first prize in the design competition for a new 90,000 m2 cultural complex in Shenzhen, China consisting of a public art museum, science museum, youth center, bookshop, underground parking and a public square. 

With their aim to connect the cultural complex with the surrounding areas and a new residential development, Mecanno's design includes a series of tapering volumes emerging from one side of the 70,000 m2 public square. The buildings then come together to create open arches and sheltered outdoor spaces for numerous event types.

FibroCITY

Image: Perkins+WillFibroCITY, a proposal centered around Houston, TX by architecture firm Perkins+Will, operates as a restorative catalyst for communities that have been segregated by 20th century superhighways and the environment built around the car.

The 15-acre fibroCITY core reclaims the spaces that once were by providing interwoven programmatic elements. It provides the platform for the city to reconnect and re-develop through a new avenue of growth.

The Arganzuela Footbridge

Paris based architect, Dominique Perrault, recently opened the Arganzuela Footbridge to the public in Madrid, Spain which stretches over the Manzanares River into the park. The project stands out as an iconic element in the city by a pair of conic structures that are wrapped in interlocking metallic ribbons.

Providing direct access to both pedestians and cyclists, the porous design takes advantage of the natural light that breaks through the park's exisiting vegetation while establishing viewsheds throughout its 250 meter long span.
