Just 4 weeks after the events of 3/11 in Japan, the worldwide PechaKucha community came together to "Inspire Japan." Over $85,000 was raised for Architecture for Humanity and ArchiAid during a non-stop 24-hour PechaKucha event that circled the globe.
117 PechaKucha Night cities came together to raise money for reconstruction in Haiti on the 20th of February, 2010, just 4 weeks after the earthquake. Raising $79,000 for Architecture for Humanity, the money has helped build a school, which opened in November of 2011.

20 Klein Dytham Architecture
PechaKucha Night is of course the baby of architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, and its with great pleasure that this evening (April 7) we celebrate the duo's 20th anniversary in Japan with not only a retrospective exhibition at Gallery MA in Tokyo, but also the publication of a beautifully-produced book of their works and design philosophy. The exhibition, "20 Klein Dytham architecture," will run from April 8 until June 6, but the celebration for the book launch happens tonight at SuperDeluxe -- otherwise known as PKN Tokyo central -- from 20:00 (free entry). Please come and join in on the festivities!
Raising Funds for Construction of the "Core House"
Presentations We kick off the week with a few presentations that were part of last week's special "PechaKucha x ArchiAid" charity event here in Tokyo. The goal of the event was to raise funds for the building of the "Core House," that is described (in English) in this presentation by Atelier Bow-Wow's Yoshiharu Tsukamoto (and pictured above). It's a production system to build a small house at a cheap cost, that can later be enlarged, adding more rooms, etc. The target date for completion is Christmas day, and you can contribute by making a donation through the PayPal button at the top of our Inspire Japan site -- $80,000 needs to be raised to complete the project. For the other two presentations we share today (both in Japanese), the first one explains what ArchiAid is all about, and the reconstruction efforts it has been doing in the Tohoku region. The second one takes a look at a project to construct shelter for ArchiAid vounteers in the Tohoku region, in the Ayukawa area. They renovated and rebuilt homes for both ArchiAid volunteers and local residents. Posters During our post hiatus we've continued to update the Tumblr blog, and so there are lots of posters to take in you haven't checked lately, coming from the following cities: San Jose (Costa Rica), Logrono, Granada, Ekaterinburg, Chicago, Kitaskyushu, and more.

Itakura Core House
The Great Tohoku Earthquake struck the north-eastern coast of Japan just two years ago, and brought with it tsunamis that took lives and destroyed countless homes along the coastline. To this day, there are an estimated 315,000 people living in temporary housing as a result of natural and man-made disasters that occured after the quake. As this is the two-year anniversary of this catastrophic event, we're spending the entire week highlighting presentations from the PechaKucha x ArchiAid Channel. In his presentation -- from the special PechaKucha x ArchiAid fundraiser -- Yoshiharu Tsukamoto (of Japanese architecture firm Atelier Bow-Wow) speaks of his efforts to build small, easily-expanded houses using the "Itakura Method" of construction to not only revitalize life on the Tohoku coastline, but to stimulate the surrounding forestry industry. Easy assembly, disassembly, and transport are among the additional benefits of the Itakura technique. The original, Japanese version of this presentation (from Tokyo Desiger's Week) can be found here. To contribute to Tohoku's reconstruction efforts, you can donate to ArchiAid's "Core House" project here.
Klein Dytham architecture
Since the venue of tomorrow's special "Powered by PechaKucha" event was designed by Klein Dytham architecture, it only makes sense to have Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham join the lineup! Following the "green" theme of the night, their presentation will focus on green buildings -- buildings that are colored green, that is!明日の会場Heineken Star LoungeをデザインしたのはPechaKucha Nightの考案者でもあるKlein Dytham architectureのAstrid KleinとMark Dytham。二人もプレゼンターとして「グリーン」をテーマに登壇します。
Top 5 Presentations Constructed of Glass, Steel, Concrete
Whether it be built of glass, poured-in-place concrete, or steel I-beams, the big bad whole may huff and puff, but he'll never blow these structures down. These are the top 5 PechaKucha 20x20 presentations related to buildings, construction, and architecture. First, we hear from Gary Cheng, whose tiny Hong Kong apartment has innumerable transmutations. (Transformer Apartment) Then we listen to Bob Berkebile's experiences with failure, and how it drove him to improve upon the architectural status quo. (Failure) Filipe Balestra discusses the importance of placement when constructing public works projects in urban villages. (Acupuncture Architecture, Urban Villages) Emma Brooke then takes us on a tour through the harsh, unfeeling (yet somehow beautiful) world of brutalist architecture. (Brutalism) And as a bit of a crossover with last week's top 5 of the animal kingdom, Roland Hagenberg describes the construction of a house meant for humans and a feathered friend. (Storkhouse)
Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9
Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures. She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful! She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week! The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen. Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us. It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde. Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials. She is also the Director, as well as an artist, of 17th Street Studios, a work space for thirteen artists near downtown Knoxville. To view more of her work visit her site http://withbearhands.com/
