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.

Los Angeles and sports championships are no strangers to one another. The Lakers have 11 to their credit over the last 40-plus years. The Dodgers have won five. Last year the Kings added to the city’s trophy case by winning their first Stanley Cup. It’s fitting then that members of the Kings were on hand dedicate a new Swarovski crystal sculpture and were part of the redesigned Champions Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. Live.

Shlemmer+Algaze+Associates Moving to Downtown LA

Commercial interiors and architecture firm Shlemmer+Algaze+Associates (SAA) is in the process of adding another Southern California office in the unused lobby of Paul Hastings Tower in City National Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles. The new office will be in the same complex as Gensler’s new home, which gained so much attention in recent months.

According to Downtown LA blogger Brigham Yen, SAA leased the northern half of the Paul Hastings Tower’s lobby and elevator banks—formerly underutilized because the tower’s office workers enter and exit through the side facing the central plaza, leaving the 4,000 square foot space unused. SAA’s new space will house 22 architects. The interiors for the new office, pictured above and below, were designed by Steven Drucker, design principal of SAA.
