Tokyo Totem - A Subjective Guide

BY EDWIN GARDNER
@ VOL 126 ON JUN 24, 2015

"This entire environment that is [Tokyo] is completely made by man, so we're effectively living in the collective imagination of mankind."

At PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 126, Dutch explorer Edwin Gardner introduces a new type of city guide called "Tokyo Totem" which attempts to look at Tokyo in a more experiential sense. Compiling a purely objective guide of the largest city in the world is simply exercise in futility, hence Gardner's fresh angle. The book is coming together with a long list of collaborators over many visits to Tokyo. Tokyo Totem will be released later this year, so be on the lookout for it and we will keep you updated!

What do you do when you're don't have a home anymore? Klaas Burger initiated #HUISJE #BOOMPJE; a poster campaign, guided tours and a guide about the local street life. The idea for #HUISJE #BOOMPJE grew at the Street Coucil: a consultation table of homeless people who meet every Wednesday morning in the Anna House. The Street Council is looking for ways to break the existing prejudices about homelessness. Because everyone can lose his house!

Child Friendly in the City

BY IAN SMITH
@ VOL 25 ON JUN 09, 2016

"Children are part of our cities. If our cities aren't designed for children, then they're not meant for citizens. If they're not meant for citizens, they're not cities."

In Child Friendly in the City from PechaKucha Night Edmonton Vol.25Ian Smith speaks to a demographic whose voices often go unheard in urban decision-making: children. Though this talk, he challenges us to view our spaces through youthful eyes, while acknowledging that we all have a part to play in building child friendly cities.
