La nostra storia

BY DRAGONFLY (BENEDETTA GELLI AND VIRGINIA VARENNA)
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 24, 2016

La storia di cui vi vogliamo parlare è la nostra. Parte dalla scelta di aprire una sartoria in un momento in cui la moda è usa e getta, in cui la qualità del tessuto non ha più valore e i modelli in circolazione sono sempre gli stessi. Una sartoria di nuova generazione dove le attività non si fermano alla scelta del tessuto o alla realizzazione dell'abito, ma attraverso laboratori e workshop, fa riscoprire alle persone la passione per l'artigianalità e svecchia questo antico mestiere.

PKN Vaduz Vol. 3

Vaduz held its third PechaKucha Night earlier this month, and from what organizer Janto Lenherr has to say, it sounds like it was their best showing yet, including an interesting "exhibition-centric" theme for all of that evening's presentations. This time around, we were invited by the artist and textile designer Martha Büchel-Hilti to organise a PechaKucha Night as part of her exhibition. All 12 presentations were in a way linked to her exhibition topic, titled "At home, the sky is bluer." We were overwhelmed by the amount of visitors who attended the event as well as the fact that both major Liechtenstein newspapers had reported about it. Janto has also uploaded all of the presentations on YouTube, which you can access on this playlist page. Below, a few more photos from PKN Vaduz Vol. 3. And now here's a look at previous volumes, starting with the first edition: And PKN Vaduz Vol. 2:

Textile-Reinforced Concrete: Material of the Future

When you hear the word "concrete" you don't typically think free-flowing fluid or organic structures. ...It's likely you might think of bunkers, gray urbanity, and bleak high-rise structures. However, in "Textile-Reinforced Concrete: Material of the Future" from PKN Maastricht Vol. 20, Kevin Pidun of Lehrstuhl für Plastik shows us that textile-reinforced concrete opens a new universe of surprising uses and forms for this gray material.
