Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

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.

BEFORE AFTER: Let's Build a Better Canterbury

PechaKucha Night in Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead sends us word on the following project she's been working on, "BEFORE AFTER: Let's Build a Better Canterbury." Over the past few months I have been working on a project initiated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects that looks at what we want our region to look like after the 4 September Canterbury Earthquake. BEFORE AFTER: Let's build a better Canterbury takes the form of a public exhibition and discussion series at Christchurch Art Gallery during February and March. The earthquake has elevated the public awareness of our built environment and we believe this to be an ideal opportunity to engage the public in a dialogue around creating a better and more liveable region. The effects of the Canterbury Earthquake have given us all a chance to step back and assess the direction that the Canterbury region is taking and it is only with public engagement and input that we can create a better, more sustainable and liveable region. The exhibition will run from February 12 to March 20, and you'll find more details on the project's official website.

Build in London

Michael C. Place of Build presented at last week's PechaKucha event at the Design Museum in London, and in this blog post, he walks us through each image of his presentation. Here's the description for the image above (slide #2):I got this holy-grail of design books whilst working at The Designers Republic. We were asked to work the weekend on a job and were offered money, or a copy of 'Mode en Module', everyone chose the book. Mine is especially dear to me as it's signed by Wim (the only other thing I have ever asked to be signed was a Harlem Globetrotters catalogue in 1985!).

Building Futures

Today's presentation is our last one from PechaKucha Night in Derby Vol. 2, "Building Futures" by James Thomson. Here's a description:The spaces in which we live and work are generic, built to a ‘best fit’ – they are the last product to be individualised. We can decorate and apply a veneer of character but what is the route to truly personal architecture? This talk offers a glimpse of the next fifty years. The optimisation of architecture for truly personalised use.

The Buzz is Building

The buzz is definitely building for our next event to be held at New Town Art Gallery. Thanks to WYDaily for a super article. They really nailed the essence of PechaKucha. New Town Art Gallery is a collaboration of 12 local artists in a great location at the end of the main drag of our New Urbanist downtown. Come stroll the shops, dine out at one of the many eateries, and then catch the PK show. One of our past presenters, Lori Jakubow, will be the featured artist at the gallery when we have our event. You can see her presentation here on our city page. We've got a great mix of repeat offenders and new converts to the cult of PechaKucha in Williamsburg. It amazes me how much of a creative culture we have in this area, and the variety is almost unfathomable. One of the challenges of scheduling this event was finding a weekend that wasn't already filled with some kind amazing entertainment. And what's astounding is that much of it is locally grown and harvested. Go get out and be creative. I love living here.

“The idea is to introduce the movement of peoples between Asia and the rest of the world.” Curator Aric Chen takes us on a tour of the under-construction M+ Museum of Visual Culture (to be completed late 2017) in Hong Kong, and the exhibition he has put together of numerous architectural works in the form of model and drawings. In “Building M+” from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 19 Aric demonstrates the way by which the exhibition conveys the processes of architectural design, places the M+ construction within history, and surveys unrealised and failed construction plans.

How to Build a Boy

“Telling the other kids ‘the brown snake is coming out of the cave’ is simply not appropriate.” Karen Ball and Jeremy Wineberg speak on the lack of exciting and inclusive programs for young boys. In “How to Build a Boy” from PKN Madison, WI Vol. 11 they read comical stories related to them by their boys’ school faculty, and show us how these letters lead to the creation of Builder Boys: a program where young boys can let out their zaniness, and build self-confidence free from constraints.
