Unconventional Formwork, What a Creative Director Does, and a Video from Barcelona

Presentations
Daniel Silverman is an architect, and in his presentation (from PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11) he shares a few projects that use unconventional materials for the formwork aspect of construction.

Mad Men are dead. Creative directors do not just get to go to parties nowadays, but as is revealed in this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Barcelona Vol. 14) by Rafa Bonichon, they have to be able to distinguish between what is bullshit and what is a good idea.

Posters
Our last addition to the Tumblr blog before the weekend is the poster you see above, for Sao Paulo's Vol. 11, which is happening tonight. It was illustrated by João Lavieri, who will also be a presenter at the event.

Video
The following video is for a PKN that happened in Barcelona last year (its Vol. 12), but we hadn't seen it yet, and we loved it so much that we played it at our Vol. 95 here in Tokyo this past Wednesday.  

Calendar
Time to take a look at what the weekend has in store, starting with a very busy Friday night: PKN Salzburg Vol. 13, PKN Des Moines Vol. 11, PKN Gainesville Vol. 5, PKN Sao PauloVol. 11, PKN Wellington Vol. 16, PKN Toledo Vol. 3, PKN San Francisco Vol. 52, PKN Delhi Vol. 12, and PKN Geneva Vol. 9. Saturday brings PKN Oulu Vol. 18 and PKN Banja Luka Vol. 6, and then on Sunday we have PKN Plzen Vol. 2.
