From SF Gate: Muji Keeps it Simple with new S.F. Store
The new store in the city’s SoMa district offers more than 2,000 items on nearly 8,000 square feet.

From MercuryNews.Com: Spectacular new buildings at Terra Nova improve facilities
Finally completed in June, Terra Nova High School expanded to include a new state-of-the-art theatre, science labs and math classroom building.The courtyard next to the buildings is so inviting with a new landscaped area and inviting benches, students have been congregating there at lunchtime and enjoying a spot that feels very much like a junior college, not a high school campus. Principal Dorene Basuino used it as a place to hold the first meetings for school clubs. A sand pit next to the courtyard is a placeholder for a new wood shop that will include classes in set design. The new theater is so technically complex, it can accommodate classes in all elements of stagecraft and theater management.
