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.

New World Centre in Miami by Frank Gehry

Yesterday the New World Symphony opened their new orchestral academy, designed by Frank Gehry Partners, in Miami Beach, Florida. Named the New World Centre, the building houses a 756-seat performance hall surrounded by large acoustically reflective “sails,” that encompass the audience with sound and serve doubly as video projection surfaces. The hall is diverse and multipurpose; the stage is made up of ten platforms, each on its own mechanical lift, that can be moved and adjusted depending on the particular theater experience. Gehry Partners worked with Nagata Acoustics and Theatre Projects Consultants to create the world-class performance hall.

Estonian Sports Hall Features Cohesive Integration Between Building and Landscape 

Estonian firm Salto Architects recently completed a sports hall at the Estonian University of Life Sciences in Tartu, Estonia. Here is the press release for the building, released by the architects: 
"The chosen plot for the sports hall was an empty, flat field right at the roadside at the entrance to Tartu, so in addition to functionality and ability to integrate and organize the surrounding campus area, the architectural competition, in a way, expected a greater degree of representation than the building type would normally imply. At the same time, the spatial program of a sports hall largely prescribes the possibilities of designing the main volume. We decided to stretch all corners of the cubic volume, and to integrate the building organically with landscape.
