PK People: Kamu Kakizaki and Kir Moore

This Week's
PechaKucha People spotlight lands on PKN Anchorage’s organizers Kamu Kakizaki and Kir Moore. As one of the newest cities to join the PechaKucha Family, Anchorage has already WOWed us with hosting a very successful First Volume on January 5th at the Anchorage Museum. Kir moved to Alaska from LA, and runs a small design studio working with restaurant and retail start-ups while Kamu is the senior designer for the Anchorage Museum. Kir and Kamu are bringing PechaKucha Night to the Anchorage community in conjunction with the Alaska Design Forum, where they are both board members, committed to the mission of broadening the discussion of design and the built environment in Alaska. We are looking forward to the duo making Vol. 2 a success, and once again, Welcome to the PechaKucha Family, Kamu and Kir!

About the City's Organizers

  • Kamu Kakizaki

    Detouring from the traditional-architect-profession track, I'm lately interested in community advocacy, Toblerone chocolate, airlines, the Monocle Magazine, personal budgets, politics, for-purpose organizations, real-estate, and finishing up those architect exams. Japan-born and Alaska-raised, I feel fortunate to have varied, wild, and weird experiences to apply to this so-called adult life. When not super busy working at the Anchorage Museum, I tend to fill the void with things to do for the Alaska Design Forum and AIA Alaska Chapter. I've started to appreciate how freelancing on the side helps keep me up to date with the latest gossips and trends of the architecture industry, which would devastate my soul to lose touch of, albeit not pursuing to be fully immersed.

  • Kir Moore

    I'm a designer of gathering spaces. I'm always on the road, and my design work energizes me like the sunrise from seat 23A, gleaming across a landscape that I believe holds hope, if only we can all come together and connect.
