PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps– just about anything, really – in the PechaKucha 20×20 format. Svensk Form is an ambassador for PechaKucha in Sweden. PechaKucha was created by the architect duo Klein-Dytham in Tokyo in 2003.
