"Bobsleighs can get up to speeds of 160 kilometers per hour, and going around one of the tight curves, can get up to 5G's just like in a fighter jet!"
PechaKucha co-founder and half of the dynamic duo that makes up Klein Dytham architecture, Mark Dytham delivers his annual holiday season presentation in 20x20 fashion. Past years' topics have included "Snowflake-ology", Un-average Sleighs, Ski-Jumps of the World, "Yuletide Shrubbery" (read: Christmas Trees) and more. This year at PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 142, he takes on "Bob's Sleigh" and the fascinating and little known world of bobsledding, elucidating on the sport's rich history, the technical intricacies of track and sleigh, and some of the sport's best stories.

Today's presentation -- recorded during PechaKucha Night in San Francisco Vol. 33 at the Autodesk Gallery -- is a powerful one, as Bob Berkebile talks about how failure can lead to profound changes. How could a man witness the fatal failure of a bridge the Hyatt Regency Hotel designed by his own firm in Kansas City in 1981 lead him to transform his firm, BNIM, into one of founders of the US Green Building Council and have a profound impact on how our buildings impact the entire planet? The theme for this PechaKucha was "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 and others he merely witnessed, have the potential to shape lives -- for the better. During the course of his 20 slides, he expressed in a very uniquely personal way the mindset and imagination necessary to see failures as the opportunities for insight that they can be.
A PKN to Remember in Stockholm
It was certainly a PKN to remember, with Stockholm's Vol. 38 attracting over 1000 (possibly close to 1200) for an event that included an international lineup of design, including Ross Lovegrove, David Wiberg, Mette Rode Sundström, and Anton Alvarez. We already have a few photos on the event page to share, and there will be more in the coming days, as well as the presentations themselves. Pictured left, Ross Lovegrove takes to the stage.
This being our anniversary week -- PechaKucha is 10 years old! -- our "Presentations of the Day" will feature some of the most popular presentations we've had on the site. 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, 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.
Scootering Across the Continent
Many talk of back-packing across Europe, but Bob Dennis did it in style: on a motor scooter. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Townsville, Vol. 2) Bob recounts his adventures in the 1960s from Austria, Istanbul, the Middle-East, and Australia.
At next week's PechaKucha Night Vol. 105, artist and gallerist Bob Tobin (of Tobin Ohashi Gallery) will cover the idea of "creativity," more specifically how you can make your work more creative, adding a healthy dose of purpose, passion, and power.PechaKucha Night 東京105（7月31日、水曜日）ではBob Tobinさんが「どのようにもっとクリエイティブな仕事ができるか」についてプレゼンテーションして下さいます。
Old into New
From glue to charcoal, tools to blades, nearly everything blacksmith and craftsman Dave Friesen uses is all-natural and handmade. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Old into New" from PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 17, Dave wants to create "future antiques." Much like the soothing Bob Ross, Dave takes us on a step-by-step, calm journey on how he breathes new life into discarded materials and creates new and useful works of art. He lets us deeper into his creative process by showing us before and after images of his tools and knives.
The Power of Observation
Are you aware, that in a single day (today) we take in 5x the amount of information we did (25 years ago) in 5 days? That's right, in the same amount of time, we take in 5 times the amount of information we did 25 years ago. Bob Hambly examines (at PKN Toronto Vol. 26) the topic of observation – how we've become visually complacent, how we are manipulated to see certain things, how important it is to have good observational skills, and how we can go about improving them. This is something we can all get better at. In "The Power of Observation", you'll see that the better we get at observing, the better we will get at generating creative ideas. Don't be a lazy observer, see (don't look -- see) things now!
If you've ever wanted to see the inside of an artist's mind, this is a great way to do it. Bob Richardson shares his unique mode of painting using a grid-system, and in "Systemic Painting" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 explains how his art style has changed over the years. He uses a variety of mediums, including canvas, silk screen, and watercolor paper. After retirement, Bob revisited his systemic painting method and experimented with new compositions and brush widths to create effective pieces of art.
From Image to Realisation
With a lack of funds and while refusing to take out loans, one man built a beautiful weekend getaway home for his family. Architect Bob Clayton takes us through the construction of a home from start to finish. In “From Image to Realisation” from PKN Townsville Vol. 5, he discusses his intention to build a weekend cottage in the mountain rain forest, and his fascination with building hyperbolic paraboloids.
