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.

FORM Issue Extra: Expert's Corner: Peter Grueneisen, FAIA, Principal and Founder of nonzero/architecture

Courtesy Peter Grueneisen/nonzero/architecture.Peter Grueneisen believes it’s important to take a comprehensive approach towards architecture, one that integrates the project with art and technology, but is grounded in functionality and sustainability. Perhaps this is one reason why so many musicians and film composers are keen to work with the firm. “The creation of stimulating structures and spaces is a primary aspiration, while economic realities, social dynamics and limited natural resources demand a thoughtful and conscious approach to design and construction,” he adds.

What are some of your current projects?

We’re finishing up a building complex called Remote Control Productions; it’s a group of film composers [that work with] Hans Zimmer. When we started, they owned quite a few buildings—eclectic light industrial buildings—some were converted into studios others into office space. It’s a whole campus. The latest building was ground up, 16 smaller studios and two larger suites. In the new building, the studios are dark, no windows, floating rooms in the building. But when you come out, all the hallways on the upper floors have large skylights. There is also a balcony with cantilevers. You have screens that can move to regulate the shade; it’s very connected to the environment.

'Table Cloth' by Ball-Nogues Studio with UCLA Students 

Table Cloth for the Courtyard at Schoenberg HallA site-specific installation by Ball-Nogues Studio, in collaboration with UCLA students, will serve as a temporary environment for music, dance and other performances on the UCLA campus. The project explores a "cross-manufacturing" strategy: After the structure has served as a set piece, the parts making up the installation will become smaller-scaled commodities, available as consumer products.

The installation is open now and will last until June 12, 2010. Check out more about it at Ball-Nogues Studio's website.
