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 in Failure, from PechaKucha Night Sanfrancisco Vol. 33, 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.

In 2021 the city of Gothenburg, Sweden turns 400. Preparing for this, the city invited different people to come up with ideas regarding how Gothenburg could make an international mark in the years leading up to the anniversary. This is the idea that Jesper Larsson brought to the table in The World's Best City When It Rains from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 100.
This was "Presentation of the Day" on February 28, 2013.
