Katherine Darnstadt

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.


Poster for PKN Cardiff Vol. 4

Our day of posters continues (see our previous posts on Coimbra and Breda) with this one for the upcoming PechaKucha Night in Cardiff Vol. 4, to be held March 14 at Chapter -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. The poster was created by Tamsyn Gill, a 3rd year graphic design student (UWIC), and here's more from organizer Lou Cameron on how the design came about:For this event we had a competition with the graphic design students and Tamsyn's design was chosen. Her theme used the play on words for PechaKucha. Tamsyn thought the title sounded like Peaches and Cwtches. Cwtches meaning cuddle or a hug in Welsh. We also have an ECO theme running through the event, so it kind of fits with the person hugging the world.


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.

Inspiring Dilemmas

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)

How to Make the World Work for 11 Billion People

"The world's population will reach more than 11 billion by the end of this century." Maria Aialova is the co-founder of Terreform ONE, a think-tank which focuses on mapping population density. With 11 billion people on the Earth, and 3/4 of the population living in cities, a redistribution of energy will be absolutely paramount. In "Making the World Work for 11 Billion People" from PKN New York Vol. 14, Maria states that we must shift from competition to cooperation and from ownership to membership in order to live successfully.
