About the City's Organizers

  • Mark Dytham

    Little did we know that a one-off event in Tokyo, based on a simple format we came up with to stop architects from talking too much, would grow into a truly global celebration of creativity - if we did we may have named the event something a little easier to pronounce and spell!

  • Astrid Klein

    Astrid Klein was born in Italy to German parents, schooled in France, educated in Britain, and since 1988 has lived and worked in Japan. She is, therefore, thoroughly international, right down to her bones. Traversing disciplinary and cultural boundaries has been a way of life for Astrid. An artistic family background has ballasted her sense of identity, while the compass of design has guided her professional career. A Masters degree from the Royal College of Art in London exposed her to the diversity of creative endeavor and developed her talent. A thirst for the exotic led her to Japan, a hunger for the new kept her there. After working for Toyo Ito in Tokyo, she and her partner Mark Dytham established KDa in 1991. The work of KDa has been the subject of numerous publications and an exhibition of their work was held at the Architecture Association in London in 2005. Astrid is a frequent guest at international conferences on design and architecture and has lectured or held teaching positions at universities in Japan, the UK, the USA, Australia and throughout Europe.

  • Brian Scott Peterson

    Brian Scott Peterson is a one of those jack-of-all trades kind of characters who re-invents his entire world every few years. He's worn a load of different hats, from writer and photographer, to musician, to entrepreneur, to NPO founder. He's happily funnelling his imagination into PechaKucha at HQ in Tokyo. Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, he's travelled the world extensively. Since 2004, Brian, with his wife and two children, call Tokyo home.

  • Mariko Yokogi

    My background is studying architecture and I love multidisciplinary creative fields! Through experiencing many projects of space design, graphic design, publishing, coordinating, and so on, I have joined PechaKucha Global HQ. Really excited to meet awesome talents all over the world!

  • Cristina Marie Deane

    Born and Raised in San Diego, CA, I grew fond of Japan over the years and decided that someday, I'd live and work in Tokyo. I've been here since 2016 and will continue to work hard in whatever I do. Temple University Japan Campus Graduate in Liberal Arts, Asian Studies (2017)
