Robin Chase is the founder of car time-share company Zipcar and carpooling site GoLoco -- based on the idea of using social networks for sharing rides -- and at this month's PechaKucha Night in Boston Vol. 9 she gave a presentation on the "anatomy of sharing." She goes through some of the main points in this blog post. For more on Robin and her ideas on sharing, there's a nice piece in GOOD magazine's "Transportation Issue," also available online.
Earthquake in Chile
Our thoughts go out to everyone in Chile after the strong earthquake and the many aftershocks. We emailed the PechaKucha team in Concepcion, which appears to be near the epicentre, as soon as the news broke in the US and we emailed them again as we woke up to the news in Japan. The PechaKucha team in Concepcion has been very active trying to raise funds for the earthquake in Haiti through our "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti." Cameron Sinclair has been in touch from Architecture for Humanity, and we immediately decided that all funds they have raised for Haiti should be used at home and we will be looking to match those funds several times over. Please check back for more news and update. Any money donated at the Concepcion PechaKucha page will be directed to the PechaKucha organizers there. The same will be done for donations made to the Santiago PechaKucha page. Please donate what you can.
More News from Chile
We recently updated you a few times in regards to the situation in Chile thanks to emails from PKN Concepcion organizer Alejandra Sepulveda -- and the latest is that she is preparing a PechaKucha presentation describing what she's gone through, that will go online. We were also relieved to hear back from PKN Santiago organizer Emilio Marin, and here's some of what he had to share: I'm OK, and I feel really lucky. The BIG earthquake was very traumatic. 8.8 Richter and 7.5 here in Santiago. The images of the BIG EARTHQUAKE and the TSUNAMI are very shocking. The Earth is still moving, this past Thursday we had an earthquake of 6.9 Ritcher here in Santiago. The zone of the earthquake will take a least 2 years to get back on track, and obviously this is affecting our nation, in every way, economic, political and social. I am now in the organization behind the next Biennale of Architecture in Chile. After the earthquake, we have changed all our efforts into focusing on the issue of reconstruction, as the architect can and must play an important role. Universities are organized, and they will contribute to re-construction projects in Chile. But I think it would be very interesting to have ideas from around the world. It is very strange, but Chile has a history of natural disasters. In fact, the world's largest quake occurred in Chile in 1960. A basic emergency housing has not yet been designed, which is more than just a tent. Right now people are in need of protection from the rain, and also need a house with a bathroom, to avoid health problems. I think there is a first stage of an emergency -- a tent, or something more worthy and useful -- but a second stage is planned as something definitive (temporary schools, hospitals, etc.), with also a final third stage of reconstruction. And as you know, many of these solutions are subject to an important economic factor. Emilio also points us to this photo-heavy look at the chaos caused by the earthquake.
Lota, Chile & Toronto
Payam Shalcian and Jamie Black of the Institute Without Borders (IWB) are out to solve the world's "Wicked Problems". In today's Presentation of the Day, we see Payam and Jamie speaking in specific on the research they did to inspire the economically and environmentally-stressed communities of Lota, Chile to shift towards resiliency. In this presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 13), you'll hear how they avoided methods of design imperialism and interventionist architecture and focused more so on ownership to combat issues surrounding planning, housing, and funding.
The Story of Chiles
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Santa Barbara Vol. 6), Daniel Montello expresses his love for the chile pepper. History lessons are given, examinations of the hottest chiles in the world are reported; among them not only the notorious habanero pepper, but many rated on the Scoville heat scale as much more volatile. Daniel offers suggestions to those who can't take the heat (hint: add sugar or milk), and talks of the compounds that cause the lovely (or awful) burning sensation when consumed.
"These are the biggest, baddest storms on the Earth -- and we like to get really, really close." George Kourounis is a global explorer, adventurer, storm chaser, and host of the Angry Planet TV series. Hold on tight as he shares (at PKN Toronto Vol. 20) some of his most dramatic tales and images from numerous up-close encounters with the most dangerous forces of nature from around the world.
Pecha Kucha: es un formato de presentación (fundamentalmente creativa) en el cual se expone un trabajo de manera sencilla e informal mediante 20 diapositivas mostradas durante 20 segundos cada una. Originalmente creado por Astrid Klein y Mark Dytham de Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa) en Tokio en 2003 como un punto de encuentro para jóvenes diseñadores donde pudiesen mostrar sus obras en público e intercambiar opiniones. Desde entonces, el formato se ha extendido de manera vírica a otras ciudades alrededor del mundo. La idea fundamental de PechaKucha Night es permitir compartir las ideas de diversos presentadores durante una noche, manteniendo un nivel de interés y atención alto mediante presentaciones muy concisas. Para ello se creó el formato 20×20 de PechaKucha, a cada presentador se le permite usar 20 imágenes o diapositivas, cada una de las cuales es mostrada durante 20 segundos. En total, cada presentación transcurre durante 6 minutos y 40 segundos, tras lo cual se hace una breve pausa y el siguiente presentador sube al escenario. Cada evento consta normalmente de 14 presentaciones. Los presentadores, vienen normalmente de los campos de: Diseño Arquitectura Arte Danza Teatro Música Audio Visual Organizaciones sociales / iniciativas locales La necesidad de tener un lugar en la ciudad para mostrar y compartir los trabajos de uno mismo parece ser global – probado por el hecho de que el formato Pecha Kucha Night ha sido replicado ya en más de 600 ciudades de todos los continentes. La frecuencia de los eventos está normalmente limitada a una al mes por ciudad. Invitamos a todos quienes tengan una idea, un proyecto, un evento a realizar un cuestionamiento, una opinión a enviar sus trabajos a firstname.lastname@example.org para presentar en PKN_VALPO, en agosto realizaremos la primera sesión, pronto anunciaremos fecha y lugar! https://www.facebook.com/pechakuchavalpo @PKN_VALPO (twitter)
