British Brutalist Architecture
BY JON WRIGHT
@ VOL 15
ON JUN 12, 2017
"We've come so far in our taste and appreciation for these buildings that you can buy models of them."
In British Brutalist Architecture from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15, Jon Wright shares his love of Brutalist Architecture and in particular his love of the examples of this severe form of art in Britain.
Jon's PechaKucha helps to get rid of a few pervasive myths about Brutalism.
He also shows you what buildings we've lost (he would describe this as a disaster!), and how we saved the ones we do have with the meta-narrative being the cyclical nature of popular architectural taste and public opinion, how that is formed and how it manifests itself in popular culture.

Today we feature a couple of presentations recorded at a special edition PechaKucha Night in Berlin during the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti," starting with this hilarious one from Raoul Zollner as he talks about the various "desired" haircuts he's had in his life. Raoul Zöllner joined in spontaneously for Haiti and decided to talk about his Afro-German heritage and his haircuts, or to be more precise about the haircuts he had or the looks he wanted to have "at the age of 12" (for some reason he seems to remain twelve years old for a pretty long time.... Funny, chaotic, lovely!

Deo Bagh to host PechaKucha Gwalior
We are very pleased to announce that heritage hotel Deo Bagh Gwalior has joined hands with PechaKucha Gwalior in organizing the most creative event - and the ONLY global platform in Gwalior, aka The City of Zero - on 24th June 2017. While most heritage hotels in Gwalior are born with the beauty and treasures of history, only some of the best hotels in India have the luxury of housing architectural treasures within the property. Deo Bagh is one such example out of all Gwalior hotels. Two 17th-18th century Maratha temples, two splendid cenotaphs and one pavilion with 36 arched doors, within the property make Deo Bagh a unique choice of accommodation in Gwalior! The 15 rooms spread across 5 wings, facing a Nau Bagh, a garden chequered into nine parts are a haven of calm from the daily hustle and bustle of the Indian street, making it the perfect venue to relax among the other Gwalior hotels. Just as PechaKucha Gwalior offers a highly innovative platform to showcase the talent and creativity in the city, it is refreshing to see that heritage hotel Deo Bagh Gwalior shares the same spirit and responsibility in developing and curating the city...virtually for all stakeholders - be they students, business community, NGOs, or other segments of the society. We highly value and appreciate this union, and express our sincere thanks to Deo Bagh's owner Mrs. Uma Devi Jadhav
