Yuki Tanaka's idea for a bottle holder is rejected due to it being too costly both time-wise and money-wise. She redesigns her holder to a less costly design that is remarkably elegant. She also shows us some of the other unique projects she has undertaken, including a spherical fruit basket and an expensive clock. (in Japanese with English subtitles)

29 Not-Quite-Random Walks Around Tokyo
BY NIKKI PUGH
@ VOL 15
ON OCT 04, 2013
Nikki Pugh was an exchange student near Tokyo and was shocked by how people in Japan give directions. They draw maps using the train station as the starting point. This gave her the idea to collect postcards with maps on them, cut out all of the text, and then go on an adventure to discover what those places were. She did this at each of the 29 stations along the Yamanote train line.

Poster for PKN Gisborne Vol. 3
The next PechaKucha Night in Gisborne (Vol. 3) is just a week away (June 18), to be held at the Tawera Studio Gallery. Organizer Pene Walsh sends in a few details: PechaKucha Night Gisborne on 18th June is to celebrate Matariki. Matariki is the beginning of the Maori New Year and refers to the time to harvest root crops and the rising of the constellation Pleiades, or Seven Sisters, Subaru in Japan or Matariki as she is known in New Zealand. Just to mix things up we are moving venue once again – this time to introduce the new space, Tawera Gallery and Studio. Speakers and topics include an astrologer, the Matariki story, an iPhone apps developer, and what is the future of the presently defunct Gisborne train line?
Poster for PKN Zagreb Vol. 7
PechaKucha Night in Zagreb Vol. 7 happens this Thursday (September 9) at Glavni Kolodvor Zagreb, the city's main train station -- the poster was designed by the PKN Zagreb team, and the photo is by Tomislav Jurica Kacunic. You'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.
Istanbul's BUMK Jazz Choir
A great little news story courtesy of PechaKucha Night in Istanbul organizer Nurten Mericer.BUMK Jazz Choir, who won our hearts with their spectecular performance on the PechaKucha Night İstanbul Vol. 9 stage last May, quickly made their way to the top and secured the ‘World Champion’ title in Graz, Austria, on July 10. After Conductor Masis Aram Gözbek declared they were selected for the Championship on stage, the Choir spent some sleepless nights and supported by Finansbank and Pegasus Airlines, they were determined to get the Cup. They won two gold medals in the Contemporary and Folk categories, and were the first runner-up in the overall challenge. The Choir’s legendary video was shot in an Istanbul Subway Train by another PechaKucha Night İstanbul Vol.9 presenter, music video director Deniz Özgün, and it has been viewed almost 1,000,000 times.
Poster for PKN Maribor Vol. 8
PechaKucha Night in Maribor Vol. 8 is happening tomorrow night (Thursday, March 22), and here's organizer Anja Hren with an explanation on the venue and how the poster links to it -- and the other photos in the post will give you a peek at the making of the poster. You'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.The location of this event is very special, as it is an old surveillance tower of the Yugoslavian railways. It stands just beside the railway tracks that are of course still in use, so trains will pass by during the event. That is why there is a train on the poster. The poster was once again made by excellent Slovenian graphic designer Darjan Panič, and it is already one of the most loved Maribor PKN posters. A look at the venue as it once stood:
A Guide to Landscapes, Improving a Train Station, and Rampant Inspiration in Gothenburg
Presentations João Nunes is an architect, and in this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10) he talks about the challenges involved in working with landscapes. This usually means having to balance elements such as time, conditions, and the type of terrain, along with very different materials. In "A Rough Guide to Wakefield Kirkgate" (from PKN Barnsley Vol. 4), Sharon Shepherds shares a few ideas on what could be done to make the historic Wakefield Kirkgate station look better. Posters We've got two new additions to our Tumblr blog, including the poster for PKN Manizales Vol. 3 you see pictured above, as well as the two sides of the PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 flyer. Photos We have quite a few photo galleries to share with you today, some from PKNs that happened a while ago (so not necessary from a city's latest volume). Pictured above, PKN Hanoi Vol. 1.PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 9 [Flickr]PKN Marseille Vol. 17 [Facebook]PKN Catania Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Albury-Wodonga Vol. 1 [Flickr]PKN Hanoi Vol. 1 [Flickr] We shared a report by PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson recently (about the city's recent Vol. 31), and here's a follow-up on the topic of instant inspiration:Sometimes inspiration travels fast. The day after PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31, presenter and sushi chef José Seruda went out in the city to find edible ingredients inspired by Klara Hansson who presented about "The edible city" the same night, and during the beer break served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants. José's own hunt resulted in a brand new starter dish using Daisy, Garlic-mustard flower and Dandelion Leaf served as part of the omakase offering the same night at his restaurant Hoze. I'm guessing it's this kind of passion for experimentation with ingredients and flavors that might be the reason many consider Hoze one of Sweden's best sushi restaurants. Below is a video of Klara going hunting for wild plants in Gothenburg city on a previous occasion and within 30 minutes serving up a fresh mushroom salad. How has a PechaKucha presentation inspired you? Calendar As we covered yesterday, tonight's (Wednesday, May 23) calendar includes PKN Prague Vol. 29, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3, PKN Leksand Vol. 4, and PKN Copenhagen Vol. 20. Tomorrow is a big Thursday (May 24), with the following events on tap: PKN Istanbul Vol. 14, PKN Seattle Vol. 35, PKN Helsinki Vol. 21, PKN London Vol. 6, PKN Kosice Vol. 18, and PKN Yerevan Vol. 16.
Architecture in the U.A.E. and a Modern Take on the Traditional Furoshiki
Presentations Anarchitect[s] is a collaboration between Jonathan Ashmore and Tarik Al Zaharna. This concept creates a platform for a collaboration between architecture and research projects in the U.A.E. In this presentation (from PKN Dubai Vol. 11), Tarik will be sharing with us the journey in realizing architectural programs, focusing on their recent project 'DXB Store'. Kyoko and Hannah Waldron come together to present (in Japanese, with some English, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94) some of the furoshiki designs produced under the LINK collective. We also get a glimpse at how these traditional items are made. Posters We have one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's for a special edition PKN Trnava, which is set to take place on August 10 (a regular Vol. 5 is set for September). And although we already shared the poster for the recent PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, here's a photo of it out in the wild: Videos Here's a short video look at a recent PKN in Guatemala City -- it was the first PKN to be held in that city. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYZHqV350iE Calendar We're looking at another slow summer week, and start off with no PKNs on this Monday night, but tomorrow (July 31) will see PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 2.
Architecture students typically build models for their theses, Callum Dowie constructed a complete building. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PechaKucha Night Auckland Vol. 17) he speaks of the tramping huts found throughout New Zealand -- once used for overnight stays on hunting trips, now used for long-term hikes -- and how they were built of materials that needed to be carried. These huts inspired him to construct a foldable, easily assembled (by 4 people, in 2 hours) living space that could have valuable real-world application for those in areas post natural disaster.
PKN Bangalore Talks Trash
No, PKN Bangalore isn't looking to insult you; the theme of their Vol. 11 event will be "garbage" of all sorts. Here's what they have to say about it: Bangalore has begun to fight its garbage problem, but weren’t we all already? This PechaKucha Bengaluru will see speakers dive into the depths of the discarded, pulling out stacks of critical and cultural debris: garbage collection, scrap art, city planning, rubbish music, trashy movies and other things from the dumpster. From the serious to the arcane, the joyful to the profane, this grown-up version of show-and-tell – 20 slides for 20 seconds each – will be sure to leave you breathless...

PechaKucha in the Classroom
At Tokyo's Vol. 100, held back in February of this year, a school teacher named Tomoko Koda was in attendance, and loved the presentation "The World's Best City When It Rains" by Jesper Larsson so much that she contacted him afterwards, asking if he could come to the school where she works (KAIS) to do a workshop with her students based on that presentation. He couldn't make it before leaving the country (he was in town on a visit), but he encouraged them to do it anyway. And so they did. We later contacted Tomoko, and she had this to say: "It was our first attempt to have a PechaKucha event at our school, and the students exceeded my expectation -- it was a huge success! Everyone talked about what they are passionate about (skateboard, basketball, computer games), their new ideas (new style of alarm clocks, creative game to get a seat on a crowded train), and new perspectives (see the positive side of moving, online activities). Students got to learn their friends' ideas and shared opinions. We had so much fun and hope to have it every year!" We've invited Tomoko to come present at one of our upcoming PKNs in Tokyo, and we can't wait to hear her talk about this experience of using the PK format with her students.
