British Brutalist Architecture

BY JON WRIGHT
@ VOL 15 ON JUN 12, 2017

"We've come so far in our taste and appreciation for these buildings that you can buy models of them."

In British Brutalist Architecture from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15Jon Wright shares his love of Brutalist Architecture and in particular his love of the examples of this severe form of art in Britain.

Jon's PechaKucha helps to get rid of a few pervasive myths about Brutalism.

He also shows you what buildings we've lost (he would describe this as a disaster!), and how we saved the ones we do have with the meta-narrative being the cyclical nature of popular architectural taste and public opinion, how that is formed and how it manifests itself in popular culture.

Brian LeBarton and Francesco Valentino for Haiti

As the big PechaKucha for Haiti event gets closer and closer, we will be seeing more and more special PechaKucha presentations like the one you see here, courtesy of an amazing collaboration between Brian LeBarton and Francesco Valentino. Here's a message from PK co-founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham: Brian LeBarton and Francesco Valentino have never met. The terrible tragedy in Haiti has brought them together by fate for this moving presentation. Brian LeBarton is musical director for Beck, and we had chattrf to him about musicians performing over 20 images 20 slides for PechaKucha presentations. Francesco Valentino is a filmmaker and photograher who we knew through a chance meeting in Tokyo. Only a few days ago when we had this idea of PechaKucha for Haiti, Brian stepped forward and said he would compose and play something for us. At the same time, we bumped into someone who said Francesco was in Haiti trying to find his family and had been taking some moving shots as events unfurled. Sadly he didn't find all the lives he was looking for. This a poignant first PechaKucha presentation for Haiti. Thank you Brian, thank you Francesco, and thank you Joey and Corrie for making this happen. Please spread the word about this initiative and our Global PechaKucha Day on 20th February -- and please click the donate button. Many other bands are working with us. If you are a photographer or have any other images of Haiti past or present you want to share, we will be happy to match you with a musician. Please get in touch at info@pecha-kucha.org. Unlike anything else out there in this world of visual entertainment, the PechaKucha Presentation Player allows you to look, listen, and think.

A Japanese Micro Brewery and a Closer Look at the Brain

Presentations As any true beer connoisseur will tell you, all beers are not created equal. In this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94), Shiro Yamada talks about the micro brewery he helped create to make a better beer (Nippon Craft Beer Inc.) and the "KAGUA" scented ale he's been producing. This presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 8) gets rather "heady," as Pierre Magistretti takes everyone on a detailed tour of the brain, and other aspects of newrobiology (the study of the nervous system). Posters New on the Tumblr blog today is the poster you see above, for the upcoming PKN Nagoya Vol. 12. The event will be held on August 24 at Montage Lounge.  httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QniQ5qxaubQ Videos Dnipropetrovsk's PKN Vol. 2 was yesterday (or is possibly still happening as we write this), and organizer Volodymyr Nedogoda has shared the video you see above, to give us an idea of what the city's Vol. 1 -- held back in May -- was like.  Calendar There are two events on tap for today (August 1): PKN Glasgow Vol. 9 and PKN Azores Vol. 3. Tomorrow gets a bit busier, with the following three events: PKN Winter Harbor Vol. 6, PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8, and PKN Victoria Vol. 10.
