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.

The FORM Questionnaire: Talking to Glen Coben

For architect Glen Coben, of Glen & Company, romance is a timeless constant in design. At Carbone, a Manhattan restaurant, he and his team capture it perfectly. Image courtesy Glen & Company.This spring and summer, Glen & Company will see four of its hotel projects open (not to mention three more scheduled for next winter). With so much happening, we figured founder Glen Coben would be a perfect person to chat with about the state of architecture and design in one of our occasional q-and-a sessions. Here, the award-winning architect, and designer of hotspots Del Posto and Carbone, to name a few, shares his thoughts on architecture, design,family and the return of elegance.

What direction do you see the profession heading?

Our client’s expectations are rising as [are those of] the people who dine out or sleep out. We have to be better storytellers and continue to surprise and delight the guests. Specifically, I see a trend towards more luxury and a little more formality. Hopefully a return to elegance.
