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.

Exhibition Design: Clive Wilkinson Talks Never Built

Architect Clive Wilkinson talks to us about the ideas behind his design for the A+D Museum's Never Built: Los Angeles show. Image courtesy A+D Museum.“Our concern was how to tell the story of so many different artifacts,” Clive Wilkinson, the president and design director of his eponymous architecture firm, says of the driving idea behind the design of the Never Built: Los Angeles exhibition, on view now through October 13 at the A+D Museum. New to the exhibition-design game, Wilkinson, who worked with Jenny Myers, Mathew Moran and many others, initially drew on his retail-design experience to underpin his concept for the space.

By Jack Skelley

Never Built Los Angeles, the A+D Museum exhibit co-curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin and designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects, is the talk of the town. The project (plus a staggeringly comprehensive book) spotlights significant places and plans imagined for the city that couldn’t get off the drawing board.

Never Built: Los Angeles Hopes to Inspire Design Ambition

Image courtesy of Never Built: Los AngelesWe at FORM are super excited about the A+D Museum’s upcoming Never Built: Los Angeles exhibit, which is in the middle of a series of fundraising events leading up to its spring 2013 opening. The most recent effort is a Kickstarter campaign running through February 14, 2013, which sets a fundraising goal of $40,000 for the implementation of the exhibit. Luckily for your eyeballs, the Kickstarter page also provides a video that offers the first glimpse of some of the truly ambitious and even outrageous proposals of yesteryear, assembled by the exhibit’s organizers, Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin. FORM spoke with Lubell recently, who explained that the intentions of the exhibit are deliberately political: “the idea is to change the culture—to be more open to ambition and vision.” Lubell continues, “it isn’t just about what could have been; it’s about what still could be.
