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.

FibroCITY

Image: Perkins+WillFibroCITY, a proposal centered around Houston, TX by architecture firm Perkins+Will, operates as a restorative catalyst for communities that have been segregated by 20th century superhighways and the environment built around the car.

The 15-acre fibroCITY core reclaims the spaces that once were by providing interwoven programmatic elements. It provides the platform for the city to reconnect and re-develop through a new avenue of growth.

FORM Event Draws Crowd Craving Info on Infrastructure

The Downtown Los Angeles offices of Perkins + Will hosted Form's most recent event on April 7: Infrastructure: The intersection of design, engineering and imagination. Form contributor Jack Skelley- Senior Partner at Paolucci Communication Arts-hosted the panel discussion, with four high-level practitioners: Leigh Christy, Senior Associate at Perkins + Will , the international design firm whose specialties includes urban design, planning strategies, preservation and reuse, discussed the proposed plan for revitalizing the Los Angeles River at the Piggyback Yards near Downtown Los Angeles.

Michael Bohn, Principal at Studio One Eleven at Perkowitz + Ruth Architects - an integrated practice of architecture, landscape and urban design - spoke about his firm's work with the City of Long Beach to create "road diets" and other innovative streetscaping. Among the successes of these efforts, Bohn reported, has been a dramatically increased business, thanks to enhanced pedestrian vitality and economic activity.  Cliff Garten, the internationally recognized sculptor and founder of Cliff Garten Studio in Venice, California, spoke about his project, "Corridor of Light," in Arlington Virginia - illuminated sculptures that combine public art with masterplanning. And Deborah Weintraub, who is Deputy City Engineer, Chief Architect for the Department of Public Works, Bureau of Engineering, at the City of Los Angeles, discussed the crucial importance of bringing architects early on into the discussion of large-scale
infrastructure projects. 

Co-sponsors of the event were Izze beverage company and Pama, pomegranate liqueur.
