PechaKucha Night, now in over 900 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

The PechaKucha People Spotlight lands on Queensland Emerging Architects Prize recipient and longtime PechaKucha Night Brisbane organizer, Christina Cho. As one of 20 architects profiled in Chasing the Sky: 20 Stories of Women in Architecture, she encapsulates how on-target our organizers are. And with PKN Brisbane's 50th Volume this week, we thought we'd go ahead and blast the PechaKucha Global Spotlight on Christina again, posing here with PechaKucha Founder Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein at PechaKucha annual organizer meetup in Tokyo. Well done Christina and PechaKucha Brisbane Team for all the amazingness! Here's to the next 50!!!
