TIME Project in El Paso

BY RIDA ASFAHANI
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

“We're really trying to change the way things are done in El Paso by letting people know that density is a good thing, letting people know that investing in local talent is something that can be really nice and really beneficial for… the people around you.”

In The TIME Project in El Paso from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, presenter Rida Asfahani describes Root Architect's TIME project. An urban density, mixed use, this spectacular third space brings people together in west El Paso. Using locally sourced materials, commissioning local talent, and trying to overall draw from the local culture, the project successfully managed to create a space that was unique.

The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project

BY PETER SVARZBEIN
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 23, 2016

"These were vehicles of economic mobility."

In The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol. 13, Peter Svarzbien shares his project to get El Paso's trolleys running again as they did in their heyday. Svarzbien is a photographer, artist and now city Councilman of El Paso. He once imagined the historic streetcars returning to the streets of El Paso again with his MFA masters thesis "The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project." Several years later, this project no longer resides only in our imaginations as the first tracks are now being laid in the streets of El Paso for the new streetcar line. With El Paso's first streetcar line in many years now under construction Peter is not content to stop here, but is now gathering political support to push for the restoration of trolley service over the international bridge - reconnecting Juarez and El Paso's fabled international streetcar service. Peter's presentation inspires us to consider how art can operate on a grand city scale to improve our quality of life.

So You Created A City, Now What?

BY MAYA SANCHEZ
@ VOL 16 ON JUN 29, 2017

The honorable Mayor of the City of San Elizario, Maya Sanchez tells the story of a group of determined individuals worked tirelessly to save their community by creating a new city in 2013. As president of this group, it was assumed that Maya would run for mayor, but she almost did not. However, having birthed this new entity, she quickly realized that she and the group of community organizers that made it happen must not stop with it’s creation and ensure that the young City was set on the right path. Maya shares how the oldest community in Texas became its newest city with the story of the City of San Elizario from 1598 to 2017.

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.

The Magic Lantern

BY DAVID DEPREZ
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"It is so important that as a student you go out of your comfort zone, out of the faculty, out of your student house - because its the only way to connect to the city."

What is 'cinema' all about and how can 'a cinema' canbe a natural intersection for informal learning and entertainment, for art and science, for students and city?

In "The Magic Lantern" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31David Deprez addresses these questions. As an artistic director of Lumière Cinema Maastricht, David plans to involve students in the programming and using films in their academic curricula at Maasstricht University.

Symphonies of the City

From the cacophonous cries of the city springs forth a mellifluous mini-musicale. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Symphonies of the City" from PKN Toronto Vol. 25, designer Marc De Pape is "exploring the relationship between sensing technology and the routines of everyday life." He's created a device that he compares to a windchime: one that not only creates sounds with the wind, but senses audio, motion, direction, temperature, light, and more. Based on the sensory input of the city, the device generates a melodious micro-orchestra of sounds that are not at all displeasing to the ear. Give it a listen on Marc's project page.
