In 2000, the Barton Myers papers were donated to the Architecture and Design Collection of the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara. Spanning Myers’ rich career from 1968–2002, the archive includes sketches, computer drawings, watercolours, photographs, study models, as well as his notes, letters and writings, and provides an in-depth insight into the working practices and philosophies of a renowned contemporary architect.
Barton Myers: Works of Architecture and Urbanism provides readers with the first comprehensible guide to this extensive archive and explores Myers remarkable architectural legacy. Edited by Kris Miller-Fisher and Jocelyn Gibbs, the book contains projects as varied as the Vidal Sassoon Salon from 1968, the US Expo Pavilion in Seville, Spain, in 1992 and his recent steel houses in Montecito and Los Angeles.
Born in Norfolk, Virginia, Myers received his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania and subsequently worked with Louis Kahn. He established his practice in Toronto in 1968. In 1984, he opened an office in Los Angeles that is now the firm’s base.
