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.

To Feel at Home

Most of us can say with certainty that our idea of home is tied to a specific location. Can you? Roshi Givechi spent much of her youth on the move -- even now, she travels about Asia for work; never truly settling on any one place -- and in "To Feel at Home", today's Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 104) she defines the elements, experiences, rituals that as a whole form her amoebic idea of this concept we hold so dear.

Vol 10 Pecha Kucha Night 'HOME'

  London is back up and running at full steam ahead into 2016. We are now up to Volume 10! For Volume 10 we have adopted a theme - ‘Home’, which the speakers will have to get their tongues round. What does ‘Home’ mean to them from a personal perspective. ‘Home’ - a place where you long to go back to, longed to leave. Is it house, a yurt, a caravan or are you just a long way away from it. It is the one global thing we all share, no matter what our race, income or religion, we all want a place we can call ‘Home’. Hosting this brilliant night is The Geffrye. A good choice we think, as that is exactly what the museum sets out to do, explore the home from 1600 to now. You never know quite where you’re going with a PechaKucha night, which is all part of the format, so come and have a couple of drinks grab a chair and settle in.
