Improv Madness: Looking into the Future of a Donald Trump Presidency
BY JESS SCHUKNECHT
@ VOL 17
ON APR 14, 2016
Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "Looking into the Future of a Donald Trump Presidency." Hilarity ensued.
Jess Schuknecht began studying and performing improv in 1997. Soon after, his face did ‘get stuck that way’ just as his mother had always warned him it would. Using what some may call a disability to his advantage he found making people laugh and teaching people improv was right up his alley, very literally. He did live and teach in an alley-way for several years. Fortunately by 2004 he became a founding member of Atlas Improv Company and lives in a house now, though he does visit the alley on occasion to stay in touch with his roots.
Manhattan Project 2.0, or One Thing Donald Trump Taught Me About Architecture
BY MARK STANLEY
@ VOL 19
ON MAY 12, 2016
In this presentation, Mark Stanley uses Donald Trump as an avatar for exploring other contingencies for architecture in the 21st Century. Though the lens of two of his favorite architectures, One Wilshire Tower and The Large Hadron Collider, he projects his future speculative design work onto Oak Ridge National Lab.
The World Great Again: Trumping Prejudice
BY ISAAC GILBERT
@ VOL 6
ON DEC 08, 2016
When local community builder, park ranger and comedian Isaac Gilbert initially sent in 20 slides of Donald Trump, no one knew quite what to expect. Isaac offered these controversial images to deftly support his thesis, ominously and explicitly tying the recent US election of Donald Trump to the zeitgeist currently driving politics and the societal quest for change. His presentation offers a creative and elegant connection between business tycoon and capitalist President Donald Trump, and his own response of community building through a tool library and co-op model.

Very High Tea at PKN Groningen
For its upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 12 (September 20), Groningen is describing the event with the title "Very High Tea," and here's why: PechaKucha Groningen strikes again. And this time, at tea time. A very, very high tea: come join us at the 23th floor of Tasman Tower. "But, that building's not even finished yet!" you say? You are right. No walls. Great heights. A spectaculair view. And great, great presenters. If you're not afraid of heights (and please, wear something sensible) you are very welcome for a cup of tea and some inspiration.
PKN Groningen Climbs Tasman Tower
As we previewed last week, last night's PechaKucha Night in Groningen Vol. 12 featured one of the most interesting venues we've yet seen. Here's more from organizer Simon Groen: PechaKucha Night Vol. 12 in Groningen was held in the new Tasman Tower, that is not ready yet (pictured above, a rendering of the finished building). It is a rather high PechaKucha, on the 23th floor. Visitors were brought to that floor in an elevator. Because the Tasman Tower is still a construction site, visitors were given a headphone with safety instructions. On the top floor visitors saw presentations by the first Dutch astronaut, Wubbo Ockels, and the archtiect of the Tasman Tower, Wicher van der Wal, and some 10 other presentations. Visitors were also served a "high tea." Last night's event also commemorated the untimely death of Mark Hoekstra, who originally brought PKN to Groningen -- see also yesterday's post on the "Mark Hoekstra PechaKucha Award."
Poster for PKN Nagoya Vol. 6
The next PechaKucha Night in Nagoya (Vol. 6) is still over a month away (August 27), but it's never too early to mark your calendar. Take note also that this edition will be taking place at the Nagoya TV Tower. The list of presenters is not up yet, but keep checking the official event page for updates (or subscribe to the newsletter).
PKN Providence in the News
Last week's PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 16 gets a rather nice recap thanks to this piece from The Providence Phoenix, and you gotta love a title like this: "Human contact is at the heart of PechaKucha." And how's this for a venue: The setting was perfect: outdoors at the Steel Yard, on the city's West side, on a clear summer night, with free wine and beer, a Haven Brothers truck, and big, spectacular art all around — from a sculpture made of bicycle parts to the Flower Tower, a 10-foot pyramid of plants.
Today's presentation, "Opportunity Squared," was recorded at Tokyo's Global Cities Week event -- last month's PechaKucha Night Vol. 89 -- and features van der Architects talking about a rather intriguing car parking tower project for Tokyo.
Designing the Japan Post Tower

Tower Neighbourhood Renewal
“These are the most important buildings of the future.” Architect Graeme Stewart speaks out on benefits of 1960s tower-style high-density urban housing as opposed to the sprawl often found in the US. In “Tower Neighbourhood Renewal” from PKN Toronto’s special Urban Innovation Happy Hour, we see that Graeme has taken the lead on the Tower Renewal project — whereby he’s taken steps to eco-retrofit these 50-year-old buildings, and worked to transform the surrounding areas into villages through policy changes and community-building campaigns.
Keep Calm and Carillon
If a 4000-pound bronze bell isn’t heavy metal, what is? Orchestral violinist Frank Steijns travels the world to play music, but also plays the carillon bells (the Netherlands’ national, traditional instrument) in the tower of Maastricht’s city hall. In “Keep Calm and Carillon” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 24 Frank tells us he’s “a DJ with a very nice instrument,” how he has taken bells out of the tower, and is now playing for audiences.
