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 Trends: Talking Offices with Blake Zalcberg

At FORM, we really like to know what makes architects and designers tick. What inspires them, delights them, even what aggravates them. It helps us understand their own work and gives us a better understanding of the current states of the profession. We're pleased to inaugurate a new series on FORMmag.net today—brief conversations with architects and designers, where we take their pulse—and the pulses of their industries. Up first is a q-and-a with Griz Dwight, the principal and owner of Grizform Design Architects, based in Washington, D.C. He gives us plenty to think about.
