The Great Coffee Caper
BY ANDRÉ CORRÊA DO LAGO
@ BRAZILIAN LIFESTYLE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA
ON SEP 16, 2015
"Help us find the last [missing] Fujita panel so we can rebuild the Brazil Cafe in Ginza!"
In "The Great Coffee Caper " from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, Brazilian Ambassador to Japan, André Corrêa do Lago shares his piqued curiosity when, as a teenager in Sao Paulo, acquiring a peculiar book of Brazilian architecture that had been published in Japan, it's last page stunning him with images the "Brazil Cafe", a coffee house in a posh corner of Tokyo for its most chic denizens, inside which was decorated with contemporary furniture, its walls adorned by a magnificent mural painted by Japan's most famous artist of the time, Léonard Tsugouharu Foujita.
Ambassador Lago's interest in the book, and in the cafe, never wavered and when appointed to his position in Japan, and in an effort to re-capture Japan's shared love for Brazilian coffee, he commissioned his staff to research the cafe's history, uncovering a caper of a tale, which has led to the quest for a missing painting and a restoration of Tokyo's once legendary "Brazil Cafe."

Building a Picture
BY AIDEN CELESTE
@ VOL 1
ON OCT 24, 2013
As a child, Aiden Celeste had always wanted to be an architect, but his life drove him to the field of research art. He discusses the process, theory, and execution of what he calls "building a picture" -- through the oculus of a camera obscura, he finds himself in a unique and wonderful otherworld. The results of his exploits are conjoined and overlapped to form something greater than a singular piece.
Getting it Just Right
BY DAVID KERNICK
@ VOL 2
ON JUN 26, 2014
As a local surf life-saver and regular ski-paddler, David Kernick has spent many years on the beautiful local waterways or surfing the beaches. His view of the local area comes from a different perspective to most as he regularly paddles in the late afternoon light and has seen many spectacular sunsets. This passion for water and low light is reflected in much of his photographic work and he enjoys the peacefulness and serenity of shooting nature, water, and landscapes. David also loves the social interaction of portrait photography and watching his subjects develop in confidence, capturing their personalities and in particular seeing the smile on their faces when they see the final product.

ON AUG 28, 2014
Zak Niazi speaks about constant changing technology, and how cameras have more or less stayed the same. He speaks about new methods of immersing the viewer in the image, rather than just limiting our photographic media to a simple, two-dimensional rectangle. Zak believes in a future where we will be able to share our experiences, rather than just our snapshots.

A Message from Cameron Sinclair
We include here a message from Architecture for Humanity founder Cameron Sinclair that should give everyone a better idea of what the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event really means, what's at stake, and how you can participate. Haiti Fatigue. It’s a phrase we will begin to hear over the next few weeks. The fact is more people died in Haiti than in the 12 countries affected by the ‘04 Tsunami. Oh, and rainy season begins in 8 days. So this natural disaster IS a big deal and it’s going to get rough. We are not the first responders, we’re the last responders and we’re in for the long haul. We estimate having teams in Haiti for 4 years but we will only do that with the financial support of others. Thanks to the amazing Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein we’re going to change that. We are one week away from launching Pecha Kucha for Haiti – the worlds largest distributed conference. This will be a 24 hour Pecha Kucha (20x20 style) in more than 100 cities – with 2000 presentations. 100% of all donations/proceeds will go towards building schools and community centers in Haiti. I’d love it if you got involved in some way. We are looking for a few more (local) speakers? With more than 100 cities participating there is no need to fly, no dodgy hotel to overnight in and no lost luggage. We’re making all speakers local. You live in NYC, then speak in NYC, If you are in Zilina, Czech – sorry it’s full! | Can’t find your city and are very ambitious? – email Mark Dytham and host one. *personally after doing DLD, Davos and TED, I’m excited by a conference that doesn’t require 1000+ to fly from one corner of the earth to another. Could this be the future of conferences? What does a presentation look like? Maori, The culture of my land Made in Deptford The Story So Far (about PK) Duct Tape Type Face We are looking for ‘virtual’ presentations? So you are busy, we understand. Mark and Astrid have a cunning plan. Thanks to sponsors Ustream and Rackspace we can pre-record a presentation and we can show it as we move around the world. Brian LeBarton (Beck) & Francesco Valentino just composed one – music only. Spare 400 or 20 seconds? You can be brave and do a full 20x20 (20 slides x 20 seconds = 6 min 40 sec) OR if you are really, really busy – just contribute 20 seconds of audio (and we’ll put in a slide). You can just say something like ‘I’m TKTK and do TKTK. I care about creating a sustainable and economically sound future for Haiti. Let’s Build Back Better with Architecture for Humanity.’ OK, what about someone else's time? You all know famous designers, engineers, musicians, artists and other creative spirits. Even celebrities. Admit it. Heck, NYC has Florian Idenburg, Gregg Pasquarelli, Craig Dykers and Iwan Baan to name a few – all talking about what they know best. What’s your city got? Why so serious? Look it is our job to be serious. We are immensely fortunate to work alongside communities and build their hopes and dreams. The work isn’t depressing, it is awesome. If you want to present, please be upbeat and speak on the sublime to the ridiculous. No one wants 24 hours of depressing visions, that’s called CNN. So seriously. Entertain, inspire and most importantly – be passionate. To present email me and I’ll connect you to the right people. To pre-record email Mark Dytham. To attend, show up and make a donation. By the way this email took you 6 min 40 seconds to read. So you do have the time!

Cameron's Message in Spanish
The organizers behind PechaKucha in Bogota were kind enough to translate the message we posted from Architecture for Humanity founder Cameron Sinclair in Spanish. It's online here, and we've posted it below as well -- please share with everyone you know! Fatiga Haitiana Es una expresión que empezaremos a escuchar en las próximas semanas. El hecho es que murió mucha más gente en Haití que en los 12 paises afectados por el tsunami en el 2004. Ah, y la temporada de lluvias comienza en 8 días, así que este desastre natural ES un asunto de gran importancia, y se va a poner peor. No somos los primeros en responder, somos los últimos y estaremos en ello por un buen tiempo. Estimamos que lograr configurar nuestro equipo tardaría unos 4 años, y sólo es posible con el apoyo financiero de otros. Gracias a los increíbles Mark Dytham y Astrid Klein [los fundadores de PechaKucha Night] podemos a cambiar eso. Estamos a una semana del lanzamiento de PechaKucha por Haití, la más grande conferencia distribuída mundialmente. Este será un PechaKucha de 24 horas en más de 100 ciudades, con cerca de 2000 presentaciones y el 100% de las donaciones irán para la construcción de escuelas y centros comunitarios en Haití. Me encantaría que usted se involucrara de algún modo. Estamos buscando algunos presentadores locales más Con más de 100 ciudades participando, no hay necesidad de volar, ni de hoteluchos para pasar una noche, ni de equipajes perdidos. Todos los presentadores son locales. Si usted vive en la ciudad de Nueva York, hable en Nueva York. Si está en Zilina, Checoslovaquia, lo siento: están llenos los cupos! ¿No puede ver su ciudad en el calendario de eventos y es muy ambicioso? ¡escríbale a Mark Dytham y organice uno! [En Bogotá también están llenos los cupos, pero toda ciudad tiene gente creativa: a ver Medellín, a ver, Cali, ¿qué hubo Cartagena? ¿y cómo van los búcaros?] Personalmente, después de hacer DLD, Davos y TED, me entusiasma la idea de una conferencia que no requiere de grandes gastos, ni volar de un rincón a otro del planeta. ¿Será este el futuro de las conferencias? ¿Cómo se ve una presentación en PechaKucha? Maori, The culture of my land Made in Deptford The Story So Far (about PK) Duct Tape Type Face Estamos buscando presentaciones virtuales Así que usted está muy ocupado/a, lo entendemos. Pues Mark y Astrid tienen un plan: gracias al apoyo de Ustream y Rackspace podemos pre-grabar una presentación y mostrarla a medida que nos movemos alrededor del mundo. Brian LeBarton (Beck) y Francesco Valentino ya hicieron una, consistente en una una pieza musical. ¿Tiene 400 o 20 segundos? Usted puede ser valiente y hacer una presentación 20×20 (20 imágenes por 20 segundos cada una = 6minutos 40 segundos) o, si está realmente ocupado, contribuir con 20 segundos de audio (y nosotros ponemos la imagen). Usted puede decir algo como: “Soy Pepito de los Palotes y soy Carpintero. Me interesa crear un futuro sostenible por Haití. Hagámoslo y mejorémoslo con Architecture for Humanity.” Bueno, y acerca del tiempo ajeno Usted conoce gente famosa: diseñadores, ingenieros, músicos, artistas y otros espítirus creativos. Incluso celebridades. ¡Admítalo! Pues en Nueva York tienen a Florian Idenburg, Gregg Pasquarelli, Craig Dykers y Iwan Baan, entre otros, todos hablando de lo que saben hacer. ¿a quién tiene en su ciudad? ¿Por qué tan serio? Mire, nuestro trabajo es ser serios. Somos inmensamente afortunados de trabajar con comunidades y construír sus sueños y esperanzas. Es un trabajo maravilloso, no es deprimente. Si usted se quiere presentar, por favor sea alegre y hable desde lo sublime hasta lo ridículo. Nadie quiere 24 horas de visiones depresivas, que para eso tenemos a los noticieros. En serio. Entretenga, inspire y lo más importante: sea apasionado. Para presentarse escríbame y yo lo conecto con la gente que es. Para pre-grabar escríbale a Mark Dytham Y para asistir, vaya y haga su donación A propósito, leer este correo le tomó 6 minutos 40 segundos, así que usted tiene tiempo! (bromeo) Saludos, Cameron Chief Eternal Optimist @ Architecture for Humanity 848 Folsom Street, Suite 201, San Francisco, CA 94107-1173 W: 415 963 3511 | M: 646 765 0906 Architecture for Humanity 501(c)(3) es una organización caritativa que busca soluciones arquitectónicas a crisis humanitarias y provee servicios de diseño profesional a comunidades en necesidad. Reconstrucción en Haití Our blueprint for reconstruction Students Rebuild PechaKucha Global Day for Haiti – Febrero 20
And now for one of the presentations that capped the entire "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event, Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair walking us, step by step and in detail, on what exactly is required in order to rebuild Haiti. The PechaKucha Presentation WAVE for Haiti started on 20th February in Auckland, New Zealand and 117 cities and 20 hours later it ended in San Francisco where Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture For Humanity, was ready to give one of the final PechaKucha Presentations on this amazing day for Haiti. Take it away Cameron! And again, just a reminder that donations are still being accepted to help with the reconstruction efforts.
Today we take a look at another presentation from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 71, this time from creator Remo Camerota, who talked us through a few of his projects, including a comic for iPhone/iPad, and two books he's worked on: Graffiti Japan and the upcoming Drainspotting.
Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti Thank You Evening with Cameron Sinclair
As the title clearly indicates, we're having a big "thank you" event in Tokyo this Saturday (May 8) at SuperDeluxe and featuring plenty of guests, and especially the man of the hour, Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair. The whole thing kicks off at 19:00, and from 20:00 Cameron will be talking about AFH's work in Haiti, and then from 21:00 we'll have a few PechaKucha presentations, followed by some live music performances. Japan's national broadcaster NHK will be on hand to record the entire evening for a future program on AFH. You'll find more details in English here, and in Japanese here. Update: The event will be broadcast live over Ustream here, from 19:45 Tokyo Time.

The night was made up of a few presentations and a talk session (pictured), capped by some musical performances. Big thanks to everyone who made it out, and of course thank you for all of the donations we've received since we launched the project back in February.
