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.

"Cloudscape" at Venice Biennale Combines External and Internal Environments

Japanese studio Tetsuo Kondo Architects and environmental engineering firm Transsolar have suspended a cloud inside the Arsenale exhibition space at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Called Cloudscapes, the installation is created by pumping three layers of air into the space: cold dry air at the bottom, hot humid air in the middle and hot dry air at the top. A spiral walkway guides visitors up through the layers to emerge above the cloud, before they descend back down through the vapour to the floor. The installation forms part of the exhibition People Meet in Architecture, directed by Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA.

US Pavilion's Airy Balloon Canopy at Venice Biennale 

The US pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale featured an installation by design team MOS entitled "Instant Untitled." It consists of a canopy of giant globular silver helium balloons and an interlocking white seating unit. MOS mentions that Instant Untitled has a small carbon footprint, in fact, that it barely even exists. Calling it an urban figment, it is a light and sustainable response to the apparent absurdity of modern architecture. This type of architecture is like diet-architecture, a copy without the calories.
