PechaKucha Night Richmond, Vol. 4 - Planes, Trains and Automobiles
The final volume of PechaKucha Night Richmond for 2013 will explore the theme of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Man-made inventions and innovations in public and private realms of transportation systems have shaped our cities throughout history. They have been a major influence in defining our social, cultural and economic histories, locally and world-wide. The City of Richmond is experiencing a vast level of growth and development. It is a municipality that is home to YVR International Airport, the Canada Line, historic tram lines and is characterized by an urban landscape that owes much of its design to the automobile. The evening will aim to provoke inquiry and dialogue between municipal government representatives, transportation professionals, public artists and designers on the past, present and future of civic transportation infrastructure in Richmond.
