It's not easy to be a depanneur, a person who get things fixed, a troubleshooter, a problem solver.
The concept behind Len Senater's "Depanneur" is to create a community-oriented venue in which interesting food things could happen. He wants to provide a legitimate space for all the underground culinaray talents in the city to showcase their talents.
Inspired by Montreal's dinning culture, Len wanted to disentangle quality from luxury, challenging the idea that good dinning experience has to be fancy. In this presentation, he shares his constant battle with the local authority (and neighbour) just to continue his dream.

BY MARYAM NABAVI
@ VOL 27
ON NOV 05, 2013
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, 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.

Virtual vs. Habitable Space
Do your virtual interactions weigh down on you? Viviana De Loera challenges architects, builders, and designers to compare the virtual “templates” designed by for-profit companies like Google and Facebook to the frenzied condo living, boxed dwellings, and office spaces we exist in every day.

Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces
"So after a lot of beer we decided to make a big, traveling park that flies to several locations all over the world." HUNK Design duo Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos come from Rotterdam, Netherlands and here they show off some of their radical interior and exterior design work. In "Putting the Fun into Funky Spaces" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116 we see that from funky interior redesigns and remodels, to outdoor patterned park spaces using artificial grass, HUNK is changing the way people use and interact with space.
The Information of Space
“Space is information-rich, and the events that occur therein provide narrative.” Miles Thorogood explores how space provides information and can be interpreted by artists in different ways. In “The Information of Space” from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see this concept is the basis behind Audio Metaphor, a company which transforms text into soundscape composition. Miles describes some projects that have been done to create AI systems which mimic animal behaviour.
Startups in Space
"Nowadays we have new tech. Everybody has an iPhone and actually these are more powerful than any of the satellites now in space. And thats the idea. We are basically using them produce space stuff that is way more powerful and much less expensive." In Startups in Space from Tokyo Vol. 127, spacecraft developer at Axelspace in Tokyo, Lucas Bremond catches us up on the accomplishments of the space programs of past and present, reminding us that many of historical cosmic triumphs were achieved with less computing power then that of our smartphones. He then turns our imaginations to the future, proposing a new age of space exploration where the playing field has been levelled, the barrier of entry lowered, an exciting new era of new inexpensive tech in space, which we can all potentially participate, and for the benefit of all.
