Crowdfunding and building: we build the house all together

PRESENTED ON FEBRUARY 11, 2015
IN CHELYABINSK

Let's club together to build a house?  Actually this phrase is the idea of Chelyabinsk project “The Ants”. The authors have come up with a scheme to invest in construction through Crowdfunding. How does this work? How to make the building process as clear as possible? And where is planned the first building, which can be observed online? Alexander Medvedev, one of project’s authors, gave the answers on these issues in the course of Pecha Kucha.

APPLAUD THIS!

Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border

BY WILLIAM HELM
@ VOL 134 ON MAR 18, 2016

"We hope whoever becomes president builds more bridges instead of walls [because] we are sister cities, divided only by the river."

In Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border from PKN Tokyo Vol 134, PechaKucha Night El Paso City Organizers (and acclaimed architects) William Helm and Edgar Lopez describe the symbiotic relationship of the sister cities of El Paso and Juarez. The residents of the two cities activate a third space of the US/Mexico border, called "Pass of the North"  which produces a rich milieu of creativity, art and culture. In this place which was historically known as "Paso del Norte" along the Spanish road from Mexico City to Santa Fe, the two cities have come together to use the PechaKucha conversation to bridge across the border. 20 x 20 x 2 cities = building bridges not walls.
