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.

PKN Posters: Nantes Vol. 6

Ever wonder why Nantes, France has some of the coolest posters around? PKN Nantes organizers Collectif MARTINN clue us in: they recently held a contest in which students of the local AGR art school designed PKN Nantes' Vol. 6 poster. Young creative Marine Scherer won the competition with her fresh illustration, and had this to say about it: Take the plunge, head first! PechaKucha is a creative promenade, full of humour and poetry in which the protagonist plunges deeply and finds themselves in the deep end of the depths of arts. This is what this original concept offers. I suggest you get into this colourful universe with me. Objects are alive here, they dance and make the audience feel like abandoning themselves to their creativity. You will need courage to sink into this madness to bring back the light. To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.

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.
