Drinking A Place

BY FELICITY JANE POWELL
@ VOL 24 ON JUL 15, 2015

When you are drinking a wine you are experiencing a place, says Felicity Jane Powell who was a wine consultant in London. Love your place and people will live your wine! Drinking globally is killing out planet. Why do we have to drink wines from all the way the other side of the world?!

Brewing Up History

BY TROY REYNARD
@ VOL 2 ON SEP 18, 2015

What makes an otherwise sane man—successful volleyball coach, athletic director, and alumnus of the year at Lehigh Carbon Community College—decide to rehab an old hotel and create a successful gastropub, Two Rivers Brewing Company?  Well, a love of beer, maybe. But also a keen understanding of how urban renewal and craft brewing can come together in powerful ways. Check out this moving inspiring by Troy Reynard.

A Resilient City Through Environmental Sustainability

BY DOUGLAS MELNICK
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

Douglas Melnick is passionate about environmental sustainability. And for good reason, because San Antonio is getting hotter. Temperatures here have risen 2.5 degree Celsius since 1960, and these kinds of drastic changes have real implications for our city today and tomorrow. For example, our infrastructure was not designed for the inundation of flood waters and other
extreme weather conditions that are becoming more frequent. But we can build resilience into our communities with incremental steps like composting, which leads to less methane in the atmosphere, or riding a bike to work, which decreases carbon emissions. And he reminds us if we don’t have the public transportation or other sustainability programs we want to see, it’s up to us to advocate for them.

Sobreviviremos... o no

BY LARA FERNÁNDEZ AJA

Living less with the car

BY PAUL OSBORNE
@ VOL 15 ON MAR 16, 2018

York remains a unique and attractive city, in part because it has always sought to deter cars from entering the city centre.  The historic core has been preserved by pedestrianisation, cycle routes, car parking policies, and park and ride.  But as the city grows, how do we nurture the city’s wider neighbourhoods to become less car reliant? Paul Osborne discusses how can developers tempt us with car-free living rather than automated double garage doors? And what do we all stand to gain from living less with the car?

PKN Raglan Vol. 1

Raglan recently hosted its very first PechaKucha Night, and here now is a look at how things went courtesy of a report sent in by organizer Rodger Gallagher. Last night's first PechaKucha Night at the Old School Arts Centre was a great success with standing room only in the theatre room. The evening started with David Wimmer giving his presentation on the work that he and Frank did in Samoa helping the Samoans rebuild 'upstairs' after the tsunami. Dirk de Ruysscher covered the very interesting bike ride he has developed to the Nikau cave near Port Waikato. The trip includes harbour crossing and two days riding on metal roads with some amazing scenery along the way and of course an unspoilt cave at the overnight stop. Jean Carbon finished the first half with her presentation on traditional textiles along the Silk Road. The 'Beer Break' proved very popular and it was difficult to get the audience back for the second half. Pieter ten Broek's photos of board and kite sports around Raglan drew gasps of amazement from the audience. Wanda Barker provided a contrast with her history of Femme Art and the proposition that it needs to be revitalised. Hilary Ramage covered creative development through a series of prints. Finishing the night was Jon Berczley who took us right from the seed through to putting food on the plate with his gardening passion. Arts Council Chairperson, Rodger Gallagher said that the PechaKucha Night was one of the most successful events held at the Arts Centre and everybody is keen for the next evening on the 4th June. Full list of presenters: - David Wimmer on the rebuilding work he helped with after the Samoan tsunami - Amanda Watson on creating her paintings - Dirk de Ruysscher on mountain biking around Whaingaroa - Rodger Gallagher on the evolving architecture and use of the Old School since 1883 -- including 1st public viewing of plans recently discovered in the National Archives - Linda Holmes on favourite photos - Jean Carbon on textiles along the Silk Road - Pieter ten Broek on surfing, kite and skate boarding in Raglan - Wanda Barker on Femme Art - Yann Bordier on living and sailing in the Caribbean - Sioux Swann on Ruapuke Sunsets - Hilary Ramage on creative printmaking - Jon Berczely on seeds Below, a look at the flyer for PKN Raglan Vol. 1.

Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?

Space. The final frontier. For zero-gravity ping-pong-ball parties.  Maryam Nabavi, an Innovation Strategist at Idea Couture, talks about her strategy for the future of commerical space (i.e. Virgin Galactic) as a service industry. If you ever thought about living in space, then small bathrooms, carbon-dehydrated food, and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements are probably not what you had in mind. However, in "Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?" from PKN Toronto Vol. 27, we learn that Nabavi redesigned the experience to have humans at the center of the problem so that it can be an enjoyable and memorable experience for anyone no matter their financial or physical situation.

99 Cent Futures

How do you imagine 99 cent products will look in the future? A miniature Mars survival kit? Carbon-absorption pills? Elliott P. Montgomery and Chris Woebken are co-founders of the Extrapolation Factory, an imagination-based studio for design-lead futures studies. They explore society's fascination with the future, and discuss where this future-culture is coming from. In "99 Cent Futures" from PKN New York Vol. 14, we see that through collaboration with local 99¢ stores, they combine manufacturing and design and play off of the public's concept of future demand and necessity.

The Fragrant City

“Smell gives us a sense of place. Our nose is our built in navigator and every city is filled with smell scapes.” In The Fragrant City from PechaKucha Night Maastrict Volume 29, Speaker Tanja Schell shows how powerful one of our most ignored senses is. We live in a world of scents. And we are influenced by them 24/7. All those scents influence our mood and our wellbeing, all of them. Even those we are not aware of. Scent is a hidden but powerful dimension which adds a strong sense of place to the urban space, it makes cities more attractive and more safe. After ages of reducing and controlling odour emissions in the city, time has come to develop a positive policy to use this invisible power.
