From the Ground Up: November 13, 2012

As we approach the historic grand opening of the SFJAZZ Center, photographer Henrik Kam updates us with an exciting look inside the Robert N. Miner Auditorium.

HK: There has been several exciting developments at the SFJAZZ Center during the past two weeks. The most significant is the removal of the interior scaffolding in the Robert N. Miner Auditorium. It was originally there to help support all the work that needed to be done overhead. The slatted wood paneling supplies the finishing touch.

The wing-like structure floating above the stage is a highly complex sound reflector/diffuser housing a grid of square compartments, each containing wooden blocks of various dimensions. The sound waves can get in, but are rather confused looking for a way out. BTW, that is not a scientific explanation!

Outside the Center, finishing touches are applied to the sidewalk concrete with great care and expertise.
