BY CARO AND MIKE
Caro and Mike did a live performance with tape recorder, voice and sound effects: An audio visual work in progress about isolation and memory of the human body & spirit in the context of empty, abandoned spaces and places. They used the setting of a former Russian military base in the town of Wünsdorf to re-tell their story of ghosts that reappear in the form of voices, images and sounds. Kind of spooky!

We Must Kill the Architecture
BY LACO TOUŠEK
@ VOL 1
ON MAY 31, 2012
This presentation by Laco Tousek is about social exclusion and spatial segregation, and the social anthropologist's point of view on sharing urban spaces. Who wants to kill the street? Developers, politicians, and architects -- they are the creators of the barriers between people interaction. Using several samples of high valued architecture projects from all over the world, he portrays architecture as a killer of public spaces. (in Czech)

httpvhd://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdClZR9OTE4 Thanks to the magic of YouTube -- and those great FLIP MinoHD mini-cams -- we get to see part of Megan Willis' presentation on "residual spaces." It was presented during last week's PechaKucha Night in San Diego Vol. 2.
PKN Santiago in Space
PechaKucha Night is set to launch in Santiago tomorrow night (April 30), and if that city's website for the event is anything to go by, it should be quite "spatial."
PKN Goes to Space
We all know that PechaKucha Nights worldwide boast an amazing wide range of presenters, but we're pretty sure that yesterday in Amsterdam was the first PKN to have a presentation given by an astronaut, two even: Johannes Sterka and Elias Tieleman. You can see more photos from PKN Amsterdam Vol. 10 in this Flickr photoset.
Today's presentation is our last one from PechaKucha Night in Derby Vol. 2, "Building Futures" by James Thomson. Here's a description:The spaces in which we live and work are generic, built to a ‘best fit’ – they are the last product to be individualised. We can decorate and apply a veneer of character but what is the route to truly personal architecture? This talk offers a glimpse of the next fifty years. The optimisation of architecture for truly personalised use.
Tokyo Local Food
Jess Mantell, Chris Berthelsen, and Jared Braiterman are always on the hunt for green spaces in urban environments -- in this case, Tokyo. In this presentation, they reveal ways and offer tips on how you can get your hands on some natural local food in the megalopolis. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 89, as part of Global Cities Week.
What is Robert Wigington and Christopher Drew's ideal Toronto? Watch this presentation to find out. Both also work with artists to invade public spaces, and run a company called 66 Ideas Incorporated. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Toronto Vol. 12.
The Future of Building
What is the future of building? James Thomson takes a shot at describing the next fifty years of architecture. For him, the spaces where we live will be truly personalized and individualized to best fit each person. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Derby Vol. 2.
Architizer A+ Awards
We're very happy to announce that PechaKucha co-founder Mark Dytham is one of the judges for this year's Architizer A+ Awards. The competition looks to highlight "the world’s best spaces and structures, and the minds behind them," and it's an honor for PechaKucha to be a part of it all. You'll find more details about the Awards on the dedicated site, and here's a video that shows off the creative process behind the making of the A+ Awards Statuette (pictured in this post), designed by Snarkitecture. The winners will be announced in May at a red carpet gala in NYC.
