Midori is a leading concert violinist acclaimed for graceful precision and intimate expression. Jean-Yves Thibaudet is an accomplished pianist who performs an astonishing range of solo, chamber and orchestral works worldwide. Both were child prodigies, and both have been performing around the world for more than 30 years.They have long been acquainted but had never collaborated on a concert. Last year, Thibaudet said, when they were both in Los Angeles, they decided to organize a performance tour, and worked through the gauntlets posed by their schedules, which often have concert dates planned years in advance.“Arranging a tour can be a difficult process,” Thibaudet said. “The easy part is to sit and play.”The result of their persistence is a global concert tour, which includes a Friday stop at the brand-new Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center in La Jolla. Both musicians have extensive repertoires of traditional, little known and newer music and both welcome … [Read more...] about Midori and Jean-Yves Thibaudet collaborate for the first time on global concert tour
There’s a housing crisis in California, with too little housing for too high of a price. But there’s one type of dwelling that could make a difference in the crisis: the accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, also known as a “granny flat.” These are small homes or units that sit on the same property as another home, allowing cities to densify and offer more rental units, and owners to generate income.

This article is a preview from Fast Company’s October issue, on newsstands September 18. Yves Béhar is marveling at his electronic trapdoor. We’re in the fourth-floor master bedroom of his modern San Francisco home, a stack of loftlike boxes with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which he spent five years meticulously crafting. It’s a hazy Sunday evening in late June, and Béhar, who is wearing jeans and a “Stinson Beach” T-shirt, has just returned with his family from their weekend surfing retreat in Marin County. Two of his four children (named Sky, Sylver, Soleyl, and Saylor) somersault on the Ubald Klug sofa set in the living room, as his wife, the art consultant Sabrina Buell, wraps up dinner. As Miles Davis’s Ascenseur pour l’échafaud purrs on vinyl, Béhar expounds on his unique approach to design after giving me the house tour. He calls the place “a living experiment,” one that treats technology like … [Read more...] about Not another Yves Béhar profile!
