Nick Gotthardt, a landscape architect, shows us some of the projects that he and his team have undertaken. One is the landscape at the visitor center at land's end. Another is some work they did around the Golden Gate Bridge. The final one is a outdoor rooftop bar.
NEXT EVENT VOL 62
Join us in a celebration of PLAY, PechaKucha San Francisco's 62nd event!
In keeping with the theme of play, the night will feature amazing wine, virtual reality demos, live music, games, an interactive activity to redesign the San Francisco flag, and of course PK presentations! This is the 62nd event in the SF PechaKucha series, but for the first time we're teaming up with Prezi to put a new spin (literally) on the presentation format.
Though the presentation format remains the same, there are limitless possibilities within that framework. Among the presentations featured at Play will be architect Brandon Baunach delivering Pecha-haiku-cha's, designers from Google's Brand Studio and an e-learning specialist riffing on the theme of Play.
Adding some interactivity and entertainment to the evening, designer Josh Silverman will lead an activity to collaborate on a redesign of the SF flag. The music meetup group Balanced Breakfast will both present and play live music. River Studios, at the forefront of virtual reality content and technology, will both show and tell their VR products. Adding to all the fun will be wines by Rock Wall Winery of Alameda.

Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, One Year On
BY CAMERON SINCLAIR
IN SAN FRANCISCO
What a difference a year makes. Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti raised over $80,000 on the 20th February 2010 for Architecture for Humanity. Our aim was to raise enough money to rebuild one of the devastated schools in Haiti, so today, one year on we are very proud to say that dream is becoming a reality. Thanks to all the amazing efforts of Cameron Sinclair and Architecture for Humanity they have begun to rebuild schools in Haiti, one of which is directly funded by Global PechaKucha Day. To mark the occasion, and let you see progress Cameron has put together an update, in a 20x20 presentation, where you can see the design for the Ecole La Dignite, the school you have funded, taking shape. After you have watched the presentation you will understand that the money we raised has been put to use very effectively. If you can we encourage you all to continue to support the long haul AFH mission mission in Haiti, you can find the pages here.

ON MAY 01, 2009
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? The theme for this presentation is "failure."
In April 2009, this was a theme everyone was confronting in one way or another. Bob Berkebile came to this event fully aware of how failures -- some his own, others he merely witnessed -- have the potential to shape lives for the better. During the course of his 20 slides, 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.
