David Benjamin is Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life — literally. David expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.
Whether it’s using living mussels and sensors to understand changes in water quality, or growing biodegradable bricks using the root-like structures of mushrooms and agricultural waste, and then building a structure using 10 thousand of these, the projects in action are a small window into our future.
This was "Presentation of the Day" on Tuesday, August 18th, 2015.

We were very happy to see some PechaKucha love shown on the Architecture for Humanity Chicago website, first with the appearance of Katherine Darnstadt's presentation "Design Like You Give a Damn," from PechaKucha Night in Chicago Vol. 12 -- you do know that you can embed PK presentations, right? And as organizer Peter Exley points out, the "Street Furniture Competition" entries include a few PKN Chicago vets, notably Joseph Altshuler (Vol. 13) and Eylül Wintermeyer (Vol. 9). "Chicago fans will remember Eylül's megalomaniacal wine vessel and bread maker that sustained thousands in New York, Joseph looking through Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window into the lives of his Chicago neighbors, and Katherine eating dirt, literally." If you're in Chicago, you won't want to miss the next volume.
Heineken Open Design Explorations (Powered by PechaKucha)
We're very happy to announce that PechaKucha has teamed up with Heineken in support of the Open Design Explorations competition, to help find a few designers from all disciplines that will get to participate in the creation and launch of a temporary club space at next year's edition of Milan Design Week (Milano Salone). The first phase of the project will see four special PechaKucha events held in Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Milan, and New York, where those chosen to participate will get to present their ideas for the space using the 20 x 20 format. One designer from each city will be chosen and then sent to Milan to participate in the final phase, which is the creation of the space itself. This is first time we have teamed up with anyone for a project like this, but we feel it is a great way to give the PechaKucha community a chance to enter and hopefully be seen at the Milano Salone. If you would like to participate, please note that you need to be able to attend the PechaKucha events in one of the four cities mentioned, and your entry needs to be sent by August 14. You'll find all details on how to enter on the following page. Update: Please note that the deadline for the event in Tokyo has been extended to August 21.
PechaKucha + Heineken in Tokyo this Wednesday
Please join us this Wednesday (August 24) here in Tokyo for a very special PechaKucha event, which will feature 20x20 presentations by the chosen finalists in the Heineken Open Design Explorations competition. Each finalist will be presenting their work -- just as in a regular PechaKucha Night -- and one will be chosen to participate in the design of a temporary club space at next year's Milan Design Week. Similar events are also going to be held in Milan, Sao Paulo, and New York. It all takes place at the birthplace of PechaKucha, SuperDeluxe, with the regular start of 20:20 (doors open at 19:00). Entry will be free, and the beer on hand -- Heineken, of course -- will be priced at ¥500.

Joshua Davis and the Heineken Future Bottle Remix Competition
There's only a month left to enter Heineken's Future Bottle Design Challenge -- which you'll recall PechaKucha co-founder Mark Dytham is judging -- and this weekend (on Saturday, 11am EST to be exact), graphic designer Joshua Davis (who is also judging) will be giving a live workshop, helping young designers come up with proper briefs for the competition. You can watch here live on Saturday.
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Chicago Vol. 20), architect and entrepreneur Marc Teer is looking for trouble. Well, more so problems: he believes in finding design issues in the architecture field, solving them, and getting the physical or metaphorical structural solution built. He speaks of two enterprises he's established to solve architectural problems: his architectural software resource site Black Spectacles, and The Un-Competition Project.
SixtyNine | Seventy Project
PechaKucha San Francisco organizer Paul Jamtgaard is helping to promote a design competition in Salt Lake City, and he's got all the details right here: Who doesn't love zip lines? We've proposed a rooftop PechaKucha surrounded by the Salt Lake City downtown skyline with millions of stars above! Other interventions: new arts and performance spaces and parking-structure-rooftop sustainable farming in the area are all connected by a network of zip lines making everyone feel like a Superman/woman. For more details on this competition, check out the SixtyNine | Seventy Project. (photo credit: Trevor Muhler Photography)
Heineken Open Design Explorations 2014
Heineken has announced their next Open Design Exploration with a focus on creating a new vision for lounging. The project will premiere at next year's Milan Design Week. Lee Gibson—interior designer and Open Design Explorations alum—will be mentoring the interior designers on the team. As an inspirational kickoff, Gibson created a multi-positional sofa (pictured) for Heineken's Magazzini that acts as a physical manifestation of the lounge theme. The teams in each city will explore the best lounges and share their findings with the other teams, the combined learnings and inspiration will result in the team's vision for the lounge. The lounge program will take many months to create, design and execute, with designers selected through PechaKucha events in Mexico City, Singapore, Warsaw and New York City. You can find out more info at Heineken's Tumblr. Anyone can contribute to the program by adding #FutureLoungeDesign to inspirational images on Instagram, which get added to the Tumblr feed. Below, the announcement video.
