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.

Image courtesy of the MAK Center.A noteworthy group of architects and artists has contributed to the Light My Way, Stranger auction—a fundraiser to benefit the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House. The auction, which will offer for sale unique light fixtures designed by a veritable “who’s who” of local architects and artists, will be held on Nov. 2 as the MAK Center’s first Day of the Dead auction. Proceeds will support the Schindler House (1922), the Mackey Apartments (1939), and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House (1936)—all designed by R.M. Schindler. 

The list of architects contributing to Light My Way, Stranger includes, but is not limited to, Atelier Hitoshi Abe, Ball-Nogues Studio, Bestor Architecture, Erlich Architects, Hodgetts & Fung Design, Francois Perrin, P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, and Mark Mack Architects. The fixtures vary from futuristic to warm to (dare we say) theatrical.

Visit the Light My Way, Stranger website to see more fixture designs and for more information on tickets to the auction.
