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.

At FORM, we really like to know what makes architects and designers tick. What inspires them, delights them, even what aggravates them. It helps us understand their own work and gives us a better understanding of the current states of the profession. We're pleased to inaugurate a new series on FORMmag.net today—brief conversations with architects and designers, where we take their pulse—and the pulses of their industries. Up first is a q-and-a with Griz Dwight, the principal and owner of Grizform Design Architects, based in Washington, D.C. He gives us plenty to think about.

Awards Report: California Firm Receives Coveted P/A Prize

CRO Studio's design for a library in Tijuana, Mexico, also serves as a civic hub. Image courtesy CRO Studio.

While Modulo Prep Library’s footprint may be small and its construction budget tiny, its mission is anything but. Instead, the library, located in Tijuana and designed by CRO Studio partners Adriana Cuéllar and Marcel Sanchez (along with a design team of Gabriela Bendeck, Arturo González and Joseph Ruiz Tapia), represents a major re-thinking of the idea and function of a library and its role in a public space. So compelling was the project and the ideas behind it recently received the 60th annual Progressive Architecture Award.

Recommended Viewing: The ABC of Architects

The ABC of Architects from fedelpeye on Vimeo.

A team including architect Andrea Stinga and graphic designer Federico Gonzalez has complied this very cool soundtracked video that gives graphic representation to the most famous buildings from the world's most famous architects--listed from A to Z. Stinga and Gonzalez apologize that they had to leave out a few "because we only need one for each letter and we done an effort to have difference [sic] nationalities," but despite the lack of Ando and Zumthor, Stinga and Gonzalez have still accomplished a fun, colorful survey of architecture of different eras and environments. Watch the video on Vimeo for a complete list of the architects and their representative buildings.

Concept and Animation: Andrea Stinga, Federico Gonzalez

Art Direction: Federico Gonzalez

Music: The Butterfly from Eugene C. Rose and George Ruble
