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.

Tom Dixon's New Lamp Makes Good Use of Pentagons

Image via FastCo DesignBritish Designer Tom Dixon is familiar to those who like their light fixtures suspended and sleek, but his latest production makes a groundbreaking addition to his product line by intricately networking 60 irregular pentagons. The Etch Web, as it’s called, opens and complicates the ideas first generated by the Etch Light Brass—and to good effect. According to a recent FastCo Design post, the Etch Web is made “with an acid-etching process similar to that used in manufacturing circuit boards.” The aluminum lamp measures out to 26 inches but weighs only two pounds. And if you want one, you’ll have to wait a little longer. The product is not yet for sale.

Aura Lamp by French Design Team Océane Delain and Béatrice Durandard

The AURA lamp, created by French designers Océane Delain and Béatrice Durandard, combines age-old craftsmanship and modern technology. Strands of rattan are interwoven with flexible strips of LED lights during the weaving process, working them directly into the structure of the object. 

Aura won first price in the 'Adream' European architecture and design competition. The two French designers recieved a grant to further develop and manufacture the product. The first prototypes are on currently on display at Espace Saint-Valentin in Lausanne, Switzerland until March 13, 2011.
