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.

Hakomori has also taught at Cal Poly Pomona College of Environmental Design, the USC School of Architecture, and most recently was a visiting adjunct professor at the School of Architecture and Allied Arts at the University of Oregon. Prior to starting wHY Architecture, Hakomori worked for several notable Los Angeles firms including Koning Eizenberg Architecture, De Bretteville and Polyzoides, and Franklin D. Israel Design Associates.
