Hi all,

I have a friend developing a celebrity chef restaurant in LA. It will also be followed by TV One, as an anatomy of a start up restaurant. They need an architect/designer ASAP near the LA market. Grateful for any leads. Thank you

I'm looking for someone really experienced in commercial kitchens design in order to get the closest-to-perfection one for my project: the most state-of-the-art 'A1 class' commercial kitchen that also would house a TV-cooking-studio and a showroom-classroom cooking area (much better if all-in-one but not necessarily).

Moreover the place should house an 80-100 seated pax dining room + a very comfortable Bar + a Tobaccologist (smoking) Area + a small Art Gallerie + a Waitting Area + some Gardens + a Valet-Parking Lot + headquarter offices area) will be my ideal of a Fine Restaurant and International Gastronomic Society.

I know that this is a very ambitious project, but thanks in advance for your suggestions.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
