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.

What to Do this Weekend: de LaB's Echo Park Home Tour

Image: ©Laure Joliet/Sunia HomesGlad to see that the good people of de LaB (stands for Design East of La Brea) are broadening their reach with an inaugural home tour. The tour will be held on March 24 in Echo Park, California—one of Los Angeles' recently hip neighborhoods, characterized by the urban perks of walkability, mixed use commercial corridors, some of the city’s oldest, most charming neighborhoods, and great examples of homes built in the last decade with modern design sensibilities and sustainable technologies.

Keeping with the local milieu, all of the destinations on the tour are within walking distance. The tour features homes by Good Idea Studio, Simon Storey, Heydey, and Jerome Pelayo (pictured above--the first effort by Sunia Homes is the newest addition to the neighborhood among this batch).

Below is the rest of the info you will need to buy tickets for what is hopefully the first of many home tours by de LaB. Act quickly because there is only one day left to buy tickets!

Saturday March 24th
12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Self-directed, tickets will be issued via email with addresses of the homes.
Tickets for the tour cost $35/person and must be purchased in advance. We will not accept payment for tickets on the day of the tour.
