Design Against Crime

BY SPIKE SPONDIKE
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 09, 2009

Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?

Pecha-2

Spike Spondike

We kick off this week's presentation highlights with another one from last week's relaunch of PechaKucha Night in London, with Spike Spondike and "Design Against Crime." Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment -- even the experience of shopping itself -- reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?

Poster for PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 1

The upcoming first edition of PechaKucha Night in Springfield, Missouri will mark our third "Springfield" PKN series in the US (Springfield, Illinois and Springfield, Ohio are the other two), and it looks like preparations are well under way. We're including the press release for the event that organizer Amanda Taylor sent us, and here's also a look at the poster for the event, designed by Daniel Zender. PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 1 will happen March 11 at Lindberg's Bar, and you'll find the list of presenters with links on the official event page. Springfield, MO – February 12, 2011 – PechaKucha Night is coming to Springfield on March 12, 2011 at Lindberg’s Bar, 318 West Commercial Street, starting at 7pm sponsored by AIA Springfield. Free admission, donations appreciated. PechaKucha Night gives voice to communities that engender creativity, be it through the various mediums of art, music, design, storytelling, architecture, or philosophy. It was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Springfield is PechaKucha’s latest stop. Come see what the cult phenomena is all about as we provide prominent and emerging creative minds in this community with a forum to bounce their ideas off of one another! Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", PechaKucha rests on a simple and concise presentation format that keeps ideas moving at a rapid pace. Presenters have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to present their material. That makes for 6 minutes and 40 seconds of edifying entertainment. Despite the stuffy “presentation” moniker, PechaKucha’s atmosphere is casual and lax. The idea is to come away from the event with a greater perspective and richer ideas, but most importantly, to enjoy oneself in the process. Springfield’s Volume 1 features PechaKucha organizer Amanda Taylor, architect Andrew Wells, magazine designer Bethany McDonald, retail renegade Bryan Simpson, LemonDrop’s Charlie Rosenbury, artist Daniel Zender, Queen City Collective’s Jordan Fox and Nicole Harrell, and others to be announced. PechaKucha Night Springfield Volume 1 for one night only at Lindberg’s Bar (318 West Commercial Street) on Saturday March 12th. Volunteer based, donation supported, this community event is held for the public, by the public. Free admission, donations appreciated. Sponsored by AIA Springfield.

Real Japanese Gardens

Jenny Schröder had a comfortable life working for a global IT firm in London, but cast it all to the wind after a brief trip to Japan. In today's issue of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) Jenny tells us how she journeyed to Saitama (the prefecture along Tokyo's northern border) to study the art of garden design, and fell into a well of knowledge deeper than she had expected. Schröder came to understand the design elements -- the balance of moss, rock, sand; the way Japanese architecture served as a frame for the garden space. She discovered the cultural/historical elements as well: the practice of Sadō (ritual tea-making and imbibing) is often performed with a garden as foreground or background, and Kamakura/Muromachi Era garden designer and Rinzai Zen Monk Musō Soseki's environments can be experienced throughout Japan to this day.  She's compiled much of her knowledge on her website (JapaneseGardens.jp) and continues to update regularly. If you've ever longed to breathe in the smell of greenery and tea whilst gazing upon the juxtaposition of nature, Schröder's database is a great place to begin.

The real dui sabda-Rabi Thapa

http://nepalitimes.com/news.php?id=18138#.UXgr6Dnzt2A The idea of a presentation in less than 10 minutes is no doubt an appealing one, particularly for Nepali audiences accustomed to the blather of self-important personages with no respect for their time. Having ranted concisely on this point not so long ago, I was intrigued to hear of but disappointed to miss out on the first edition of Pecha Kucha Kathmandu in Attic Bar. I was happy therefore to be invited to contribute to photo.circle's presentation for the second edition last Saturday. The format of Pecha Kucha, which is Japanese for 'chit-chat', is 20x20. This means that each presenter – and there are about a dozen per session – gets 20 seconds each for 20 slides, making for precisely 6 minutes 40 seconds. No politely gesturing hosts are needed to discourage over-running, as the presenter has no control over the slides he or she is presenting. The fear of being caught mid-presentation as your 'Thank You' slide beams out to the audience appears to be deterrent enough. Pecha Kucha began in 2003 in Japan and has now spread to over 260 cities. Kathmandu's second edition took on an 'Inspire Japan' theme and included an incredible range of suitably inspirational stories from artists, journalists, photographers, writers and filmmakers. It was further enlivened by an auction of organiser Sujan Chitrakar and Chirag Bangdel's artworks, the proceeds from which joined with door takes to help fund the building of a school in Japan. Of course, there are always good presentations and bad presentations. There is the risk of Death by Powerpoint, and inattentive audiences. And the format has unique challenges. It took some doing to squeeze the seven slides I was allotted on the book 'Hamra Hajurama' into photo.circle's presentation – in so many words, to distill my grandmother's three billion seconds of personal history into 140. And then you had American photographer Brian Sokol, who chose to sit in near-total silence as his brooding images of urban Japan cast light and shade on us. "Who'd have thought 20 seconds would be so long," he quipped. But the inspiration was as much for the Nepalis present as for Japan. While those meant to be doing the most for Nepal stoop ever lower in their bungling, self-absorbed cretinism, to hear someone passionately describing a project that she has poured her creativity and intellect into is to hear the sound of hope. It goes without saying that there are many more Nepalis across the country equally deserving of such a platform to present their ideas to their peers. Pecha Kucha Pokhara's a shoo-in.

What's the Big Idea?!

Where do good ideas come from? What does a bad idea looks like? How can you turn an idea into reality?  In today's Presentation of the Day, "What's the Big Idea?!" (from PKN Louisville Vol. 10) Will Russell goes into detail on his wacky, weird, and wonderful ideas (failures and successes) such as international Big Lebowski gathering Lebowski Fest, retail store and unoffical fanclub for the city WHY Louisville, Pee Wee Over Louisville, and his failed attempt to create a Kentucky Rushmore (Muhammad Ali, Colonel Sanders, Abraham Lincoln, and Triple Crown winning racehorse Secretariat were to be included).

Design Against Crime

What if your chair could prevent theft? In today's Presentation of the Day "Design Against Crime" from PKN London Vol. 1, designer at the Design Against Crime Research Centre Spike Spondike argues that designers and criminals have a lot in common: they look for opportunities, they're risk-inclined, and they have a "wonky way of thinking." She asks: Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?
