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.

Book Review: The Building Impulse

By Michael Webb

Why We Build: Power and Desire in Architecture. Rowan Moore (HarperDesign, $30).

Rowan Moore is the outspoken architectural critic of The Observer, one of the last serious newspapers in Britain—a market increasingly dominated by tawdry tabloids. His commentaries on new buildings can be found on the Web site of The Guardian, a liberal daily owned by the same non-profit trust. In Why We Build, he has stepped back to reflect on a broad swathe of architecture and the forces that shape it.

The FORM Questionnaire: A Conversation with Russell Greenberg

U*tique, a luxury vending machine concept, springs from the mind of Russell Greenberg. Image courtesy RUX Design. Russell Greenberg founded RUX in 2008 with the intention of creating a space for innovative thinking, where, as he puts it, "lightning strikes twice daily." In practice it means the firm's portfolio encompasses everything from architecture and product design to brand identity and technology. Stickbulb, a line of lighting, launched last year, and there's also Cameo, a jewelry collection, not to mention a luxury vending machine concept. We're delighted to bring you a conversation with Russell, as part of our on-going q-and-a series with architects and designers. Here, he touches on the beauty of fragments—and a complicated relationship with caffeine. You can also see more of his work in our Summer issue, arriving soon.

Workbook: Car Rental Rethought

For the new Silvercar rental suite in Dallas, the design team created a look that suggests sleek, contemporary, efficiency. Image courtesy Silvercar.

If you think about it, renting a car is one of the least-surprising parts of travel. You wait in line, hand over your credit card, get your keys and are on your way. No matter where you happen to be—Dallas, Los Angeles, New York—the process is pretty much the same. Enter Silvercar, a new concept in the car rental game with a design identity to match its innovative approach. You see, every car the company rents is silver (at the moment only 2013 Audi A4s) and every step of the process can be done via smartphone, from reservation to pick-up.
