Inspired by Alvar Aalto
BY CALEB JORDAN
@ VOL 6
ON APR 19, 2017
"It's got a very home aesthetic to it, it is very soft and very warm."
In "Inspired by Alvar Aalto" from PechaKucha Night Seinäjoki - Vol. 6, Caleb Jordan, a student from Colorado, says “My interest in Alvar Aalto started when I first came to Finland and went on a tour with my art class of the Alvar Aalto buildings. It was cool to see how his design aesthetic was so simple and modern, but so very unique and so recognizable.“

PKN Aalen in the News

On the same night as PechaKucha Night in Ferrol Vol. 3, Aalen held its Vol. 4 to a packed house of 200, inside Aalen's town hall. As organizer Thomas Maile tells us, it was a terrific event, with all 14 presenters -- you'll find them listed with links on the official event page -- fully entertaining the audience, sharing the stories they had to tell.
PKN Aalen Vol. 5
The other day we mentioned how the next PechaKucha Night in Aalen was going to be a special edition featuring a few candidates for upcoming elections, and organizer Thomas Maile tells us it ended up being a wonderful evening.We had 250 people who visited our event, and on top of that 400 visitors joined through our live stream. The 20x20 format is not normal for politicians, but the candidates for our house of parliament did a good job. As you can see in the photo, political speeches can be really funny.Also, here's a report on the event from the Schwabische Post, and you'll find video of the presentations here. And again, please note that the next PKN in Aalen (Vol. 6) is set for March 25 -- more details here.
PKN Aalen Vol. 10

We also include two scans of some newspaper articles the event got, and you'll find all the presenters listed on the event page.On March 2 we had a great event, the biggest one we ever had, with about 300 people in attendance. We are a small town, with 65.000 citizens, and so 300 is really great for us. One wonderful presentation was by Franziska Helmle about Tokyo, because she lived 4 years there. Altogether we had 12 presenters and the funky band RENATES.

The clock (in the photos) shows the countdown of the time from the moment of the Birth of the Earth to the moment of its collapse, owing to its inevitable approach to the Sun.
