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.

North Christian Church (Photo Courtesy of ModernCapitalDC)Beginning Friday October 5 and showing until January 3, the A+D Museum of Los Angeles presents "Eero Saarinen: A Reputation for Innovation", a retrospective of the renowned architect's work. The exhibit pays tribute to Saarinen’s brief yet brilliant career, which included numerous corporate, educational, cultural, public, and private buildings--such recognizable icons as the St. Louis Gateway Arch, the TWA terminal at JFK, and Dulles Airport.

Irwin Union Bank (Photo Courtesy of ModernCapitalDC)The volume of his work also includes many lesser-known buildings, such as the Irwin Union Bank, which displays a constrained and practical mastery of Modernism. Eero contnued to diversify his career by exploring product design and innovation. While still in his 30s, he established himself as one of the most creative furniture designers of his generation by breaking technological and aesthetic boundaries with such icons as the tulip chair and the womb chair. 

An opening reception will be held on October 5th from 6:00 to 9:00pm. Admission is $20, $10 for students, and free for A+D members.
