NEXT EVENT VOL 10

SECURE Your £8 ticket here https://indytute.com/venues/PechaKucha-at-The-Geffrye-16.html

London is back up and running at full steam ahead into 2016. We are now up to Volume 10!

Ok, first up what is a PechaKucha night? Originated in Japan, a fast and fabulous night of individual presentations, but there is a rule... NOBODY can speak for more than 6 mins, which means that you really can’t afford to be BORING. Each speaker will show 20 images and talk about each image for 20 seconds. We also have a theme ‘Home’, which the speakers will have to get their tongues round. What does ‘Home’ mean to them from a personal perspective. Hosting this brilliant night is The Geffrye. A good choice we think, as that is exactly what the museum sets out to do, explore the home from 1600 to now. You never know quite where you’re going with a PechaKucha night, which is all part of the format, so come and have a couple of drinks grab a chair and settle in.

‘Home’ - a place where you long to go back to, longed to leave. Is it house, a yurt, a caravan or are you just a long way away from it. It is the one global thing we all share, no matter what our race, income or religion, we all want a place we can call ‘Home’.

Note the £8 is put towards covering the cost of the evening and the Pecha Kucha Global Fund.  Feel good about contributing to the Global Fund and valuing what PechaKucha Nights bring to London! It's what ensures we can keep this website and giant network going to host and keep the spotlight on London's creativity. And at the pace we're growing, the Global Fund is the only way we can continue together so please keep contributing. A very big PK thank you to London for your commitment on this!

How Very Intimate

BY THOMAS KLASSNIK
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Thomas Klassnik gives various examples of what it is to use the toilet. It is a very personal and self serving room. To take the toilet and make it not only personal for yourself, but with others as well. Bringing the outside in, and the toilet to the table, it allows more chance to be intimate with everything and everyone around you, and let the world be intimate with you.

Find Your Place

BY ROZ BARR
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

As an architect herself, Roz Barr keeps everything in mind, and plans out all the details that go into each room. This also includes the bathroom. Finding it very important to have control on how you can relax, and discovering your place, is just as important as the toilet and sink itself. To feel relaxed and be free from the stress of the world around you, and being allowed to do your business at your own pace.

Back to Basics

BY ROCK GRAPLIN
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Eat, Pray, and Toilet.

Rock Graplin goes into depth and starts trying to understand the future of the toilet. For him, understanding the past is how to see the future. In a world full of new technology being produced every 5 minutes. And the last place to escape is the toilet, and that should be how our future of the toilet should look like. Simple, clean, and simply earthly.

Toilets of the World

BY PHILIPPA TURRELL
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Adding some fun to your daily bathroom breaks can be fun, or too much that it makes you think, "I can hold it."

Philippa Turrell talks about the various types of famous, glamorous, and breath taking, literally breath taking, toilets in the world. From the most expensive toilet, to the most awkward style restrooms, to add more excitement to your trips of relieving yourself. Maybe toilet rooms should be left as a simple toilet rooms and privacy? You be the judge.

BY JONATHAN GAUNT

Sexy and Community

BY KATE MALONE AND STEPHEN PEY
@ MADE IN LONDON ON SEP 17, 2014

Kate Malone and Stephen Pey worked together to create a building with hand made glazed tiles and design. After many trials and errors of cracking ceramic tiles, the finished product was to make something sexy but have the sense of community in the finished building. Which makes the hard work all worth while.
