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.

Coming Up in the Magazine

Editor-in-Chief Alexi Drosu is putting the finishing touches on the next issue of FORM even as we speak. Since we hate to wait, we wanted to get a sneak preview and checked in with her. It sounds like it's going to be fantastic!

Here's what she has planned: "Urban design takes center stage in our March/April issue as we explore the role of color in the city and travel the globe in search of cosmopolitan canvases. Also inside, you'll read about smart glass technology, sustainable lighting and how we create public spaces to serve our urban communities."

New Faces at FORM

The new year brings new faces to FORM. Today, we're introducing you to our new editor-in-chief, Alexi Drosu, and our new online content editor, Lisa Bingham. 

Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Drosu knows that the key to a compelling story is capturing the voice of an individual, whether it be a celebrity profile, an architectural study or a human interest story. With more than 15 years experience writing for consumer publications, including the Los Angeles Times, Robb Report and In Style magazine, she has interviewed hundreds of experts and individuals for her portfolio of articles. Her work has provided opportunities to interview celebrities such as actor Geoffrey Rush and singer Mary J. Blige, top experts including architect Ed Niles and CEO Tim Koogle, and regular people sharing extraordinary journeys, like quadriplegic Francesco Clark who is crusading for a cure to spinal column injuries. Today, Alexandra seeks to discover up-and-coming designers, innovative technologies and compelling narratives for the pages of FORM magazine.

Lisa Bingham brings over 15 years of experience in the design and publishing worlds (both print and digital) to the position of online content manager. After receiving a master's degree in decorative arts, design and culture from the Bard Graduate Center, Lisa spent several years in the curatorial departments at the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Huntington, working primarily with the museums' 18th-century French design collections. An eight-year stint at Architectural Digest followed, where her design expertise was put use—writing features and serving as the publication's market editor. In 2010, Lisa became a founding editor of Entra, an early online design and architecture magazine, handling issue planning, writing and editing. Although her early training focused on 18th-century design and architecture, Lisa's design and architecture interests are broad and she looks forward to sharing them with an online audience.
