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.

AIA|LA and Spark Collaborate on a New Mentorship Opportunity

Ask just about any architect or designer and chances are there was a mentor somewhere along the way—someone to inspire, someone to lean on, someone just to be there. It might have been formal or more ad hoc, but however it worked, the support was critical. Over the years, the AIA|LA has sponsored a variety of formal mentorship programs. There was one that paired college students with noted local architects and designers and another geared toward elementary school students. At the same time, the organization has partnered with other groups to create even more mentorship opportunities for members.
