A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space

BY JOANNA GILLESPIE
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"This is my 6-minute memoir. A mediation on impermanence."

In A Brief Memoir of Architecural Space from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, independent arts consultant and co-organizer of PechaKucha Buffalo, Joanna Gillespie, delivers a meditation on twenty of the fifty places she has lived since birth. From Victorian-era structures in Buffalo, NY and San Francisco, CA, to the wilds of the 1970's California coast, to modern and efficient rural Japan, to a Postmodern art utopia in Maine, and beyond, Gillespie recounts a particular memory from each space. Through all of the temporal landscapes we find ourselves in, Gillespie concludes, "We forge on, either clumsily or assuredly. We keep on keeping on." Even if we move fifty times.

PKN Barcelona Planting Trees

PechaKucha Night in Barcelona recently teamed up for a new eco project with Tree-Nation in which they are planting one tree for each of its presenters. PKN Barcelona organizer Petz Scholtus explains: Pecha Kucha Barcelona is planting trees: it’s fun, and the trees fight poverty, desertification, deforestation, and climate change. For Vol. 5, we partnered up with Tree-Nation, and from now on every speaker will be given a tree that is planted in the growing heart-shaped forest in the Nigerian desert. The trees are virtually planted over the internet, where you can see it grow, water it, add photos, and connect to other trees and their people while a real tree grows in Tree-Nation’s plantation. Here is a direct link to Pecha Kucha Barcelona’s forest. Check out and join Tree-Nation, the biggest free Internet social network with the objective of planting trees.

San Luis Obispo Is a Happy Place

PechaKucha Night in San Luis Obispo Vol. 14 is happening this very night -- March 11, at the Steynberg Gallery, with presenters listed here -- and after we got in touch with organizer Tom Di Santo to wish him a great event, he shared this bit of news:National Geographic recently published a piece on the happiest places on the planet. San Luis Obispo was in the top four in the world and was the happiest place in the United States. One attribute that they called out was the amazing support for the arts here. We were glad that PechaKucha contributes greatly to the Happiness here.There was indeed temptation to move our HQ from Tokyo to San Luis Obispo. The photo is from this post, found through a Google image search.

The Importance of Place

"Places affect us, and we affect places."  In "The Importance of Place" from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 8, Eva Read-Warden explains how places have unique features and aesthetic qualities that differentiate them from ‘space’, as well as from one another.  They are where we become ourselves, connect to the world, and communities are formed. By making and preserving places, we create the opportunity to not only dwell comfortably but create a continuum on which others can build.
