BY MATTHEW CUMMINGS
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

Glass That Produces Heat, Killing Architecture, and Birthday Wishes from Catania

Presentations In this presentation, part of a special PKN event in Miami (Vol. 14) that dealt with sustainability and the environment, Roz Gatewood introduces EnergyGlass, a type of window that can produce heat. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) by Laco Tousek is about social exclusion and spatial segregation, and the social anthropologist's point of view on sharing urban spaces. Who wants to kill the street? Developers, politicians, and architects -- they are the creators of the barriers between people interaction. Using several samples of high valued architecture projects from all over the world, he portrays architecture as a killer of public spaces. Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of our recent uploads, in this case the poster you see above for PKN Bogota Vol. 9, happening on October 12.  Video The video above was produced by PKN Catania has a "happy birthday" message to PKN Tokyo a few months ago (when we were celebrating our 9th anniversary), and it's fantastic.   Calendar Tonight (September 26) we have our PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 at SuperDeluxe, where PK was born, as well as the following events: PKN Glasgow Vol. 10, PKN Skovde Vol. 9, PKN Lille Vol. 1, PKN Coventry Vol. 10, and PKN Providence Vol. 42. Tomorrow is another big night: PKN St. Louis Vol. 10, PKN Leeds Vol. 13, PKN Logrono Vol. 7, PKN Guatemala City Vol. 2, PKN Vigo Vol. 1, PKN Santa Barbara Vol. 5, PKN Varberg Vol. 3, PKN Vladimir Vol. 8, PKN Portsmouth Vol. 12, and PKN Hanoi Vol. 5.

Illusory Glass Structures

We've always desired an escape from gravity, and we've always been tied to our shadow. What if we were free from both? In "Illusory Glass Structures", today's edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 72), architect Dirk Jan Postel -- one of the world's leading proponents of glass in building construction -- discusses the innovative usage of this transparent structural material: how it allows architects to make additions to existing historical buildings, seemingly levitate large concrete slabs, and creatively let light enter or exit spaces.

Top 5 Presentations Constructed of Glass, Steel, Concrete

Whether it be built of glass, poured-in-place concrete, or steel I-beams, the big bad whole may huff and puff, but he'll never blow these structures down. These are the top 5 PechaKucha 20x20 presentations related to buildings, construction, and architecture.  First, we hear from Gary Cheng, whose tiny Hong Kong apartment has innumerable transmutations. (Transformer Apartment) Then we listen to Bob Berkebile's experiences with failure, and how it drove him to improve upon the architectural status quo. (Failure) Filipe Balestra discusses the importance of placement when constructing public works projects in urban villages. (Acupuncture Architecture, Urban Villages) Emma Brooke then takes us on a tour through the harsh, unfeeling (yet somehow beautiful) world of brutalist architecture. (Brutalism) And as a bit of a crossover with last week's top 5 of the animal kingdom, Roland Hagenberg describes the construction of a house meant for humans and a feathered friend. (Storkhouse)

The Hunt for American Brilliant Cut Glass

"Upon seeing the green vase, I was speechless. It was wrapped in newspaper dated from 1970 and had been in the attic the entire time. It was a one of a kind piece, and no one knew it existed. After all the wasted trips and false alarms, here I was with one of the greatest discoveries of cut glass." Franz Hellwig is an avid collector of American Brilliant Cut Glass, an art form and product popular in the United States from 1876-1916. In The Hunt for American Brilliant Cut Glass from New Orleans Vol. 7, Franz shares with us a bit of the history and methods used by the American artisan to create these pieces of art.
