Using his experiences in Vietnam and his impressions upon moving back to Tokyo, Austin Klemmer addressed some of the fundamental issues facing designers and architects in developing countries, and the way these problems shed light on design/architecture in Tokyo.

Context, Scale, Meaning, Place

BY CHARLES PIPER
@ ARCHEX PECHAKUCHA SESSION ON NOV 07, 2013

Architect Charles Piper admits that his title may seem architectural and pretentious. As well, even though he admits it's just an excuse to show us some of his favorite places, those places sure can make you acutely aware of context, scale, meaning, and place the way he unfolds them.

Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab

BY KATIE YURKEWICZ
@ VOL 5 ON NOV 10, 2016

"The sculpture that straddles the lab's entrance appears symmetrical when viewed from below but asymmetrical from all over views, reflecting the view of broken symmetry that is crucial in modern physics."

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory looks like no other science lab on Earth—thanks to the vision of founding director Robert Wilson and artist Angela Gonzales. Under their aesthetic direction, architecture, sculpture, color, and design combined to produce a lab that was revolutionary for its time. In Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 5Katie Yurkewicz shows off another side of the legendary physics lab.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2017.

Achieving Sustainability by Adaptive Reuse

BY FREDERIC DALBIN
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 15, 2016

Projections show that 50% of architectural design in the next 20+ years and beyond will be for renovating and re-purposing existing buildings.  This represents an historic opportunity for the architecture and building community to reverse the most significant crisis of modern time:  energy depletion and environmental degradation.  Fred Dalbin demonstrate approaches and practices for conservation and adaptive re-use of the existing built environment through projects completed by this firm.

Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78

BY FRANK PALEN, ESQ., AICP
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

“Think of me as a time traveler. I’m going to take you back to a place called Buffalo in the 1970s.”

In Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78 from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, attorney and urban renewal advocate, Frank Palen, recalls the creation of a historic district for theatre and culture from a once abandoned rust belt urban core. From 1977 to 1979, Palen was Research Associate in the Center for Community Research and Development at the University at Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Environmental Design, serving as Coordinator of the Buffalo Entertainment District Project. The University at Buffalo’s graduate studio investigated the potential of promoting a theater district in what was then an increasingly abandoned section of Downtown, despite various setbacks and a challenging political climate. The result was a very high-profile effort that set an agenda for the redevelopment of Buffalo that continues today.
