The Architecture of Entitlement
BY EMMA FULLER
@ VOL 18
ON MAY 18, 2017
In a whirlwind PechaKucha presentation, architect Emma Fuller discusses a history of language and the city plan - how entitlement has created a new architectural tool for the powerful to dismantle the collective and empower the singular. See examples from Mussolini to Trump in this 20x20 !

Her work addresses architecture as art and memory.

Coaching – Schafe im Hörsal
BY THOMAS HERBRICH
Wie quetscht man 30 Schafe in einen Hörsaal, den es noch gar nicht gibt? Und wo findet man eigentlich einen bösen Wolf?

BY THOMAS KLASSNIK
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE

Bringing the outside in, and the toilet to the table, it allows more chance to be intimate with everything and everyone around you, and let the world be intimate with you.

BY THOMAS MAILE
@ VOL 32
ON JAN 12, 2018
Das Geheimnis guter Reden und guter Vorträge liegt darin, dass nicht nur Zahlen, Daten und Fakten präsentiert werden, sondern dass die Vortragenden es schaffen die Präsentation in eine Geschichte einzuweben, oder eine Geschichte in die Präsentation zu bringen. Thomas Maile erklärt wie das funktioniert und warum das so ist.
SITEWIDE BLOG POSTS
We may not be able to read it, but we know that a lot of you can -- due to the long-running success of PechaKucha Nights in Germany -- and so here's some nice PKN-related coverage from Designervolk. Thanks go out to PKN Aalen organizer Thomas Maile for the heads-up.
As we've mentioned, the "PechaKucha for Haiti" efforts continue all this month, as we upload as many presentations as we can to the site to help raise money for the cause. One of the latest additions is this one, presented at the Chicago/Champaign-Urbana PechaKucha event on the 20th of last month, featuring Scott Thomas talking about how he helped design Obama's campaign. So instead of going out for a coffee, sit down for a few minutes and enjoy Scott's presentation, and then pitch in a few dollars to the reconstruction efforts.
Leeds was one of the cities that had an event during the "Global PechaKucha Night in Haiti" back in February, and last week we posted a few presentations from that evening, which you'll find here. Pictured in this post is an image from a presentation by Darren Paine, an engineer who talks about working with architects, and questioning the work itself: Why are we designing these things? What is their function?
The first presentation we highlight on the blog this week comes to us in German from PechaKucha Night in Aalen Vol. 1, featuring that city's organizer, Thomas Maile, talking about "Kreativitat in der Krise."
People Love the Format!
We often get messages from organizers following their PechaKucha Nights, sometimes as a full report that appears on the blog, or sometimes just a few short words to say that things went well. We did get a kick out of PKN Taos organizer Matthew Thomas message, following last week's PKN Taos Vol. 2: Event #2 was a complete success! Sold out, max capacity and they had to turn people away. PEOPLE LOVE THE FORMAT!
Poster for PKN Waterville Vol. 6
PechaKucha Night in Waterville Vol. 6 is set for January 20, and yes, it is the state of Maine and we're in the middle of winter, so there is a snow date of January 21. It will be held at Thomas College's Student Commons, and you'll find the full list of presenters on the official event page.
Walking through Japan

In "Walking through Japan" from a very special Swiss PechaKucha Night edition of PKN Tokyo, listen to this endearing story of his struggles and his experiences with friendly natives as he walked for 5 months straight from Hokkaido to Kyushu. Thomas' walk of the length of the island nation was made into a documentary, "Negative: Nothing" and has been screened throughout Europe and Japan
Illustrating PKN Orlando
What does a PechaKucha Night in Orlando look like, illustrated? We've got the answer right here with this lovely piece by Thomas Thorspecken. See more examples of his work as well as very detailed rundown of the event (Vol. 12) he participated in here.
The Charming Town of Aalen
