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.

Tokyo Parking Structure Adds Green Space to Cityscape with "Green Cladding" 

Rendering of Shinjuku Gardens' exterior street viewShinjuku Gardens by Hong Kong-based Cheungvogl (Judy Cheung and Christoph Vogl) is a social, environmental and urban contribution, solely based on economical profit which deals with the cost of sheltered parking and green spaces within Tokyo.

Shinjuku Gardens is a 2 story car park, which replaces an existing open one, that doubles the number of spots available for vehicles. Considering the relative tightness of the space, ramps are replaced by elevators - within a 2 story circulation this is feasible, depending on lot-based car-lifting. Even by doubling the amount of parking spaces over two levels, the ground area is reduced by one fifth, thanks to a more effective layout which provides more free green space, along with the infiltration of rain water.

El Parque de Buen Retiro, Madrid The City of Madrid is full of surprises.

Madrid is full of abundant huge green parks, magnificent tree-lined boulevards, flowers, emblematric green-scapes, vertical gardens, a boating lake, and an enormous sprawling parkland making the Capital of Spain one of the world’s leading examples of urban beautification and a Green Renaissance in our 21st Century.
