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.

A New Cultural Hub for San Francisco

In the last few years, San Francisco has seen an influx of new architecture to house its cultural institutions. The new SFJAZZ center designed by award-winning firm Mark Cavagnero Associates, which formally opened on January 21, joins their ranks as an admirable addition to the city's urban fabric. The building is modern architecture at its best: in tune with its surroundings, functionality (acoustics, in this case) held paramount in its design, and intended for the public (rather than a rarefied few) to enjoy.
