PechaKucha of the Day App!



It was PechaKucha's 14th Birthday earlier in the week and to celebrate - and we mean really celebrate - we made a very special present: The 'PechaKucha of the Day' iOS App. It is downloadable NOW from the App Store just by searching for PechaKucha or you can download it here!

How could a man witness the fatal failure of a bridge in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, which killed 114 people, designed by his own firm, and then become one of the founders of the US Green Building Council, and have a profound impact on how our buildings impact the entire planet?

During the course of his 20 slides in Failure, from PechaKucha Night Sanfrancisco Vol. 33, he expresses in a very uniquely personal way the mindset and imagination necessary to see failures as the opportunities for insight that they can be.
