Foraging and Picking

BY BRIAN CARTER
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Architects are hunters and gatherers." 

In "Foraging and Picking" from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 17, professor of architecture Brian Carter provides a retrospective of twenty postcards from his many travels, highlighting what each image signifies in the mind of an architect. Carter reminds us that architecture can be an international language. It prompts travel, causing us walk into buildings, to meet people, and to listen, sense and smell the places that we go. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, November 21st, 2016.

Our Outer Harbor

BY JAY BURNEY
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

In Our Outer Harbor from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, writer, naturalist, and environmental activist, Jay Burney, recalls the activism of Margaret Mead to remind us we have the power to advocate for public lands and sustainable development. Buffalo's Outer Harbor has been used, abused, targeted, developed, abandoned, and targeted again. Legacy contamination remains. Burney and the Our Outer Harbor advocacy group are on the front lines resisting the privatization of public land through protests, workshops, public meetings and hearings, media production, and community engagement.
