New York: City on a Grid

BY GERARD KOEPPEL
@ VOL 7 ON DEC 04, 2015

Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”

Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!

Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

Collage City

BY JEAN-MICHEL REED
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."

In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016.

Non-Building Photos by an Architect, Urban Art Interventions, and the Launch of PKN Kuching

Presentations PKN Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss is an architect who also has an eye for photography. This presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2) forms a collection of some of his favorite non-building photographs and what makes these photos special to him. Tom Lisboa is an urban artist, and as we find out through his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), he loves working with points of view, invisible polaroids, and urban interventions. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today: PKN Vladimir Vol. 8 (pictured above) and PKN Gainesville Vol. 5.  Photos There are of course PKNs of all sizes, and Kuching's first PKN last week had a modest start -- you'll find a few photos here [Flickr] -- but it generated a lot of love from the audience, who immediately asked when the next edition would take place (soon, we hope). It also got some great coverage from the Borneo Post -- we're certainly happy to have Kuching join the craze. Calendar Here are tonight's events, featuring two Vol. 1s: PKN Bari Vol. 1, PKN Albany Vol. 1, PKN Prague Vol. 30, PKN Kiruna Vol. 3, PKN Dallas Vol. 10, and PKN Stuttgart Vol. 8. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday, with the following on tap: PKN Maastricht Vol. 15, PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 3, PKN Miami Vol. 17, PKN Hamptons Vol. 1, PKN Valencia Vol. 14, PKN Winnipeg Vol. 11, PKN Whangarei Vol. 14, PKN Malaga Vol. 1, and PKN Aarhus Vol. 14.

Acupuncture Architecture, Urban Villages

In acupuncture, when putting a needle in just the right place, one can drain the tension from the entire body. Acupuncture architecture serves a similar need. Putting a single school in the middle of a village may seem insignificant when compared with the greater area it exists within, but certainly helps the community it's surrounded by.  This edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Stockholm Vol. 21) features international architect Filipe Balestra speaking on the work he's done to alleviate the architectural stress found in the slums (or, as he suggests they be called: urban villages) of Brazil and India. Filipe's process involves gradually implementing sturdy, cheap, simply-designed housing constructs of various types. Rather than uprooting entire communities (as is common in large-scale urban reconstruction projects) only the most poorly-constructed shacks are chosen to be replaced with a more permanent edifice. Each family has the opportunity to choose from various permutations of the 3-floor framework and participate in their current shanty's demolition as well as their new domicile's fabrication. By avoiding imposition wherever possible, and working in tandem with existing residents and local governments to legitimize these structures, Filipe's projects have done some real good.

The Psychological Impact of the Architectural Environment

Whether you can put it to words or not, space has a profound effect on our psyche. Where do you feel most comfortable? Architect Juan Calvo uses a series of projects to explain (at PKN Miami Vol. 15) and illustrate the psychological impact the surrounding environment can have on the viewer when walking through or around a structure. He shows us that the blending of architectural and natural elements can evoke a deep sense of belonging. His full spiel: "The Psychological Impact of the Architectural Environment"

PKN Weimar #4 Radio Lotte

On the brink of summer. Between two World Cup games. Squeezed in Radio Lotte Weimar, the fourth Pecha Kucha Night! What a delight! The songs Panon hideung, Personal Jesus performed by the locally famous Limona Jam reminded us of the great PKN #3. The three musicians reached the peak with I feel good! which moved some of the audience towards a loud dance in the bar area of the hospitable Lesesaal at Goethe Platz 12. The great photos of the evening by Simona Zajancauskaite are streamed here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/110288053@N04/sets/72157645103325358/. During the evening, for the third time we hosted our good neighbor from Erfurt, Barbara Kuntze, who just a week later succesfuly launched the first PechaKucha Night in Erfurt! Huge congratulations, and let's rock Thuringia together! Straight after the concert we received five involving presentations, each of them charged with a slightly scientific focus:  Christiane Lewe, a PhD at the Media Faculty of the Bauhaus University presented her fascinating research on the genealogy of facebook. Clarissa (first left) except for enjoying the nicest bar tender in the world (Sara and Carl) in a two-presenters presentation shared her perception of the Merketal dormitory juxtaposed with the impressions of the Jakobsplan by Simona Z. The travelling architect Joshua Raff enriched our evening by his story on learning Chineese by the means of sharp hand drawings, while Carlos Sandoval of Mexico took us into his hipster photo story charged with explosive sense of humour. The evening was topped with the brilliant trio of Fabulous Jakobsplan who invited us all to participate in their participatory research about the only scyscraper of Weimar - the Jakobsplan dormitory. Who knows where will we end up in September! Thanks to all for your great support and see you next time!
