Pipers Projects, Powered by PechaKucha
How can London’s outer town centres be activated to create sustainable places to live/work/shop/socialise? What are the projects and ideas that are transforimg centres outside the CAZ?
As part of the new NLA Insight Study ‘London’s Towns: Shaping the polycentric city’, this evening event will see quickfire presentations about the most recent projects and initiatives in London’s outer urban centres.
The format, PechaKucha (ペチャクチャ), was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein and has turned into a massive global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes presentations concise, keeps things moving at a rapid pace and holds its audience.
Taking place during the exhibition London’s Towns: Shaping the polycentric city, this event is part of NLA’s Bouroughs programme.
"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format."
