City Focus: Wolfville

For this week's "City Focus" we want to highlight another successful new series, and so we head to the Canadian town of Wolfville, to share its growing presentation archive, and that's with only two PechaKucha Nights so far (Wolfville's Vol. 3 is already set for September).

PechaKucha on YouTube

We know that many of you love watching content on YouTube, and so on top of continuing to share our presentations here on the global site, we are now adding our "Presentations of the Day" on YouTube as well. Check out our new PechaKucha Channel, subscribe, and share!

Material Knowledge

BY NICK BRUSCIA
@ VOL 115 ON JUN 25, 2014

After discovering leftover material from Kikutake's 1970 Osaka Expo tower, architectural researcher Nick Bruscia and his students began experimenting with textured stainless steel sheets to create a system of woven face frames. Its reflection of sunlight and resistance to winde make the installation's specular quality and the structural integrity one in the same. Nick comments that he is trying to create knowledge about materials, rather than implement knowledge.
