Shaping Space and Realities

BY LAUREN SLOWIK
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"What I find funny is the idea that doomsday preppers think they can inoculate themselves from effects of an apocalypse by collecting things we have manufactured in the last 100 years to protect themselves from the future, but in fact what we need more are tools and solutions to overcome the quandary that the demise of our species is at our own hands."

In Shaping Space and Realities from PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Vol. 4, self-proclaimed design evangelist, educator, and promoter of play Lauren Slowik explores the infinite possibilities of shaping space and realities with advancing 3-d printing technology to create new physical connections. Join her as she goes deep into the rabbit hole of how our future can be reimagined with a shift in thinking. 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, September 10th, 2015.

The Resurrection of Christchurch

BY NETTA EGOZ
@ VOL 134 ON MAR 18, 2016

In The Resurrection of Christchurch from PKN Tokyo's Vol. 134 Pow Wow Special, PechaKucha Night Christchurch Organisers Netta Egoz and Erica Austin use the 17 PKNs since the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes as a means to document the social rebuild of the city. The events move from temporary buildings to pop up public spaces and finally back to permanent buildings as the city reopens and rebuilds. Each event showcases a different venue, designer, photographer, and the speakers often talk about their ideas for a better city which are now collated under the Inspire Christchurch channel!


This was "Presentation of the Day" on Easter Sunday, March 27th, 2016.

Aalen's "PechaKucha for Haiti" special event will be taking place February 22 at Hochschule Aalen, and here's a look at the lovely poster that was put together for the evening. As we've mentioned before, even if cities are holding events on days other than the 20th, we urge everyone to attend and contribute donations to the reconstruction efforts.

PechaKucha Haiti Reconstruction

We were contacted by Studio Number One a few days ago with an offer we couldn't refuse: ''We would like to design your logo for PechaKucha for Haiti.'' Studio Number One is one of the hottest -- if not THE hottest creative firms in the world right now -- and as you may know the studio's founder is Shepard Fairey (OBEY). So one Skype call, three email sessions, and 48 hours later, we have one amazing logo! Here's more on the studio: Studio Number One is a Los Angeles-based creative firm where art and design bridge the gap between culture and enterprise. Founded in 2003 by artist Shepard Fairey, the studio has built a reputation as one of the most influential creative agencies in the country, with a team of rising-star designers that includes two recipients of the prestigious Art Directors Club “Young Guns” award. Through any medium, Studio Number One aims to connect people, places and things in beautiful, thought-provoking and novel ways.

The Goal of the Reconstruction Efforts

As we've already mentioned a few times -- and you'll find more details on the "PechaKucha for Haiti" page -- all of these events are to raise money to help with reconstruction in Haiti, with the focus being on education projects, schools, and the like. Just to give you an idea of what has happened, here are a few new statistics from Concern Worldwide US Operations Director Dominic Macsorley, delivered through Twitter: 4,616 schools surveyed, 80% damaged 431 teachers killed 4,000 students killed 250,000 school children displaced As you'll probably agree, these numbers are overwhelming, and UN numbers have over 8,000 schools destroyed. You'll find more data at the Haiti Education Cluster page.

PKN New Haven + Inspire Japan

New Haven, in collaboration with the local chapter of Architecture for Humanity, will host an Inspire Japan event on May 19 at BAR Pizza -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Here's more from organizer Greta Hotopp:The event is a benefit for the reconstruction of Japan and to encourage this country which has long inspired artists and architects in the world. In PechaKucha style, speakers will focus on 4 main themes: INSPIRE, JAPAN, THE ISSUES, and RECOVERY. These could be things of inspiration, great ideas or solutions that help deal with the issues at hand or experiences and understandings of Japan. A $10 suggested donation will be collected at the door. BAR is providing their space at no cost. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Architecture for Humanity’s Japan Reconstruction appeal.

Design for Social Innovation

This presentation (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97, in Japanese) was put together by a group of students participating in the Design for Social Innovation Class.  In this course, art students demonstrate what design can do for both the repair of Tohoku's image and its physical reconstruction. The project lasted 8 months -- its goals were to bring more people to the Tohoku area, and motivate local residents through art.

3/11 and ArchiAid

Today marks the anniversary of 3/11 -- the earthquake/tsunami disaster that affected the northern regions of Japan in 2011 -- and so we will be featuring presentations all week that relate to the topic. We will also release an updated version of our Inspire Japan ebook later this week, with new presentations (you can download it for free from the iBookstore).We kick things off with this reconstruction project by SANAA on the island of Miyato, with the goal of maintaining the traditional lifestyle of the locals, and to preserve the sights and island nature (as with most of the presentations on the ArchiAid Channel, it is in Japanese, but with English subtitles). It was part of a special "PechaKucha x ArchiAid" event, and you can still offer support by donating through the button you'll find on the presentation page -- money raised goes to the "Core House" project.

Reconstruction Projects in Oshika Peninsula

Shoko Fukuya, from the Tohoku Institute of Technology, discusses her long-term efforts to pool the efforts of architecture students from all over the Japanese nation to rebuild the Oshika Peninsula, Miyagi Prefecture. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from the special PechaKucha x ArchiAid fundraiser), she addresses the complications found in building in this area -- the geography isn't what anyone would call "flat". On the bright side, she also goes over the richness of this coastal region: the delicious wakame seaweed, the oysters, the deer, and of course the fishermen who live and work there.
