And here's another presentation from the Chicago/Champaign-Urbana edition of last month's "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event, this time with Amanda Roelle talking about her experience as she contributed to the rebuilding efforts in Thailand after the 2004 "Boxing Day" tsunami.
Our second presentation from Phoenix's "Global PechaKucha Night in Haiti" event is "Rebuilding after Katrina" by Mark Ryan, showing off what a group of motivated students can do. Also, please note that we've added presentation listings on each city's PechaKucha Night landing page, so you'll now be be able to find all online presentations from a particular PKN city that way as well.
Zwai and Phillip
Our final presentation from PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg Vol. 5 is a bit of an irreverent one -- OK, maybe actually QUITE irreverent -- with Zwai and Phillip sharing with us "Rebuilding, the African Way." We hope it puts a smile on your face. You can see more presentation from Johannesburg in that city's section of the "Presentations" area.
Here's a presentation (in Spanish) from PechaKucha Night in Barcelona Vol. 8, with Giovanna Carnevali of the Spain chapter of Architecture for Humanity covering some of the Haiti reconstruction efforts, as well as a few other projects.
Ideas for Christchurch
Also coming to us from Christchurch today (see our previous post about the event postponement), organizer Vanessa Coxhead fills us in on an intriguing new project called "Ideas for Christchurch," that looks to get young architecture students working together on ideas for rebuilding Christchurch. Below, the details of the project. This is a call for ideas. Christchurch's recent 7.1 magnitude earthquake has severely damaged much of the built fabric of the city, in particular historic buildings in the centre. Outlying suburbs have been hard hit and vast numbers of homes will need to be reconsidered. Currently teams are working to assess, and to salvage what is possible of the city's buildings. Within a few weeks large-scale rebuilding will begin. This call for ideas comes from a group of young architectural graduates with an interest in engaging members of the public in dialogue around building decisions that affect them. The events in Christchurch have given their concerns a direct and immediate weight: over the coming months, hugely significant, city-defining architectural and planning decisions are going to have to be made. We implore the public at large, as well as architecture students and practicing architects, to become involved in a positive and productive discussion over the nature of these decisions and the kinds of rebuilding they would like to see take place. We want to see your ideas providing a framework to give shape to what could, should, or might be. Choose your strategy, construct an argument, share a notion, indulge in joyful play, fight against or reach towards. Scale is open: form a strategic vision for the entire city; reconsider a hard hit suburb; preserve a local dairy. Salvage heritage and character, design temporary infills, sustainable developments, urban parks/reserves, inner-city living, a new typology of housing, a city of skyscrapers, a city of pickles… whatever you find interesting. We want ideas, ideas to stimulate interest and establish discussion to achieve the best for Christchurch. Design, plan, write, draw, paint, model, dream... just share what you value and deliver it in an A3 digital format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submit as often as you want, as a group or as an individual; identify yourself or remain anonymous. We see this as urgent. Submissions are open from Wed 15th to Sat 25th September 5pm. Selected works will be uploaded to online discussion forums, presented to the media, and publicly exhibited. For submission requirements, further information, queries, and updates please email the above or visit: ideasforchristchurch.wordpress.com
PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 3
Here are a few photos from the recent PechaKucha Night in Springfield, MO Vol. 3 -- held in what looks like a really fun space (the Historic Firehouse No. 2) -- as well as a report from organizer Amanda Taylor. The full list of presenters with links appears in the official event page.PechaKucha Night Vol. 3 went really well. We had about 110 people in attendance with 8 presenters. After the devastating tornado that destroyed 1/3 of Joplin, Missouri (one hour from Springfield) in May, we have shifted our focus from Inspire Japan to Joplin fundraising as it is a desperate regional need. Springfield's local chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) are working closely with the City of Joplin for rebuilding efforts, and they need as much community support as possible. PKN Vol. 3 raised $100 for AIA Springfield in the support of the City of Joplin's planning, zoning, and rebuilding efforts. Our next PechaKucha Night will be focused on raising funds for Joplin's rebuilding efforts through AIA Springfield, on September 23.
Your Guide to Role-Playing, Rebuilding in Tohoku, and a Photo Gallery Explosion
Presentations A Bangor native with a passion for weird and creative things, Chris Pierce has been a star "Dungeon Master" -- the person who directs a session of a role-playing game -- at the annual SnowCon Gaming Convention in Orono for the past 4 years. His enthusiasm and love of tabletop gaming is addictive -- and shines through in this presentation from PKN Bangor, ME Vol. 4 -- and he’s been known to convince many a "noob" to sit in on a game of Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow. In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92), architects Daisuke Sugawara and Masayuki Harada describe a reconstruction project they've been working on, to help rebuild in the Tohoku region. As you'll see, they've been trying to rebuild villages, to keep the community together. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for next month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9 (pictured above) and one for the upcoming PKN Moscow Vol. 19 (it's not listed on the official site yet, but it should be added soon).
