Music By Design

Last night the Red Bull Music Academy opened the doors of their new home in New York to a diverse crowd ranging from skateboard toting music lovers to architect Steven Holl. As if the allure of 38,000 square feet of state-of the art digs by Jeffrey Inaba and INABA wasn’t enough, Kairos, an exhibition of NY-based artists curated by Ken Farmer of Nuit Blanche was displayed throughout the space. Housing a lecture room, performance lounge, ‘living’ room and studios-a-plenty, the four-floor Chelsea location was recently completed, just in time for the Academy’s New York arrival.

Lincoln Center Inside Out

Lincoln Center Inside Out is a new book chronicling Diller Scofidio + Renfro's renovation of the famed New York City venue. Not only does it tell the story of the firm's fantastic and arduous makeover of the space, but it does so using a device that can only really be rendered in print—tons and tons of gatefold spreads. Leafing through this volume you really feel that for all of the slick renderings and computer-aided graphics architecture offices produce, you really can't beat a massive book with huge fold-out images. Get this one on your coffee table pronto.

Photographer Jill Paider and Gehry's Biomuseo

Photographer Jill Paider just returned from Panama City on a fantastic architectural adventure, bringing back photographs of the much-anticipated Puente de Vida Museum, or Biomuseo for which it's better known. The museum will be Frank Gehry's Latin American design debut and exhibits designed by Toronto based firm Bruce Mau Design. Biomuseo's mission is to educate Panamanians about biodiversity and motivate them to know and appreciate this natural component of their identity, and generate to their visitors the need to protect its environment. The museum is located on the Amador Causeway in Panama City and is scheduled to open later this year. The Los Angeles-based photographer shot these images this past Tuesday in what she says felt like 200% humidity. Says Paider, "It is a very highly anticipated opening—the locals are extremely proud to have not only a new museum, but a structure built by starchitect, Frank Gehry (they've had it on the CitySightseeing tour since construction began). I walked onto the site and was immediately greeted by the foreman. I told him that I'm Frank Gehry's neighbor in Santa Monica (actually true) and that I wanted to take a few pictures close up. They gave me access up to the immediate perimeter of the building. As the pictures show, it's very Gehry and makes an interesting and unique addition to Panama City's skyline."
