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.

Events: What's Happening in November from AIA|LA

Before running through AIA|LA’s events planned for November, we wanted to take a moment to congratulate all of the winners of organization’s Design Awards. You can visit here for a slideshow of the Design Award winners and here for the Next LA winners. They also have a rundown of the ceremony and before and after-parties, all held at three iconic Downtown LA locations. We’re planning extensive coverage of the winners in our January/February issue, so be sure to keep an eye out for that, too.

Running through the month of a November is a show at the AIA|LA Gallery on the work of Jeff Matsuno. A native Angeleno, Matsuno lived and worked in Italy for seven years, before returning to LA. His work explores architecture and the passage of time.

On November 6, there’s another installment of the City Leaders Breakfast Series. This time, participants will get a chance to meet with City Council Member Gil Cedillo, of the First District. The breakfasts are a great opportunity to connect with a range of civic officials to discuss visions for LA’s future.

For devotees of the organization’s tours, there’s a terrific one on November 11—a visit to the State Bar of California offices downtown.  Located in a 1958 structure that had been vacant for 20 years, LEAN ARCH was commissioned to open up the building to allow more natural light in. Principal James R. Meyer will take participants through for an in-depth look at the work.

Finally, the AIA|LA Healthcare Committee presents The American Medical School—Identifying Innovations for the Future of USA Hospital Design on November 13 at CO Architects. The event will explore how changes to American medical schools’ designs will in turn inform the design of hospitals going forward. 

For more information on any of these events, be sure to visit AIA|LA’s Web site.

CO Architects Redesign Natural History Museum

CO Architects is helping to breathe new life into the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) with an innovative expansion and re-imagination of the institution’s North Campus, which dates back to the 1920s.

The $30- million project’s focus includes a redesigned front façade with entry bridge, pedestrian-friendly terraces and communal areas, a new two-level car park, and a major landscape program encompassing 3.5-acres of recovered green spaces with programmed gardens and outdoor learning environments.
