Where in the World is this PKN?
It sure is fun finding random photos taken at PechaKucha Nights on Flickr -- yes, we do like to keep an eye out in case something good pops up. Here's another mystery, yet attractive shot, with the possible cities -- according to our calendar -- being Billings, Huancayo, Warsaw, Bangalore, or Saint-Etienne (the photo was taken on December 3, 2010, by Flickr user Lisa Kori).
Reviving Urban Environments, the Mysteries of the Teutonic Knights, and Outside in Cancun
Presentations Payam Shalchian and Jamie Black, two alumni from the Institute Without Boundaries, talk (at PKN Toronto Vol. 13) about the significance of collective action in reviving urbanized environments. They use Lota, a project in Chile, as a case study, reflecting on the project's outcome in relation to various aspects of Toronto. Marek Czechowski is a traveler and researcher, and in his presentation (in Polish, from PKN Koszalin Vol. 7) he talks about the real history of the teutonic knights, who during the 13th century ruled the North of Poland. This is however a history that doesn't follow any school books or academic sources. This story reveals the very truth about the knights, who, according to Marek, were not able to build their famous brick castles themselves... Gaining spontaneous applause, Marek proves they had no necessary knowledge to do this, and that they had insufficient money, as well as insufficient building materials. Posters We have two new posters on our Tumblr blog today: a flyer for PKN Kyoto Vol. 7, and then one from Nantes (pictured above), for the city's upcoming PKN Vol. 3 (set for June 19).

Here lies an abandoned amusement park deep within the Treptower Park forest of East Berlin, originally built by the Deutsche Demokratische Republik in 1969. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Miami, Vol. 15), Anthony Spinello and Agustina Woodgate discuss the history of this delapidated "jungle of thrill machines" and the creative events that were to take place within the park starting June 2012. Research of the what the space was, and what it could be in the future was to be conducted: there was a Kickstarter project, much promotion was done, even a fancy website was made. But what has happened since then, remains a bit of a mystery in itself...
