TIME Project in El Paso
BY RIDA ASFAHANI
@ VOL 11
ON OCT 10, 2015
“We're really trying to change the way things are done in El Paso by letting people know that density is a good thing, letting people know that investing in local talent is something that can be really nice and really beneficial for… the people around you.”
In The TIME Project in El Paso from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, presenter Rida Asfahani describes Root Architect's TIME project. An urban density, mixed use, this spectacular third space brings people together in west El Paso. Using locally sourced materials, commissioning local talent, and trying to overall draw from the local culture, the project successfully managed to create a space that was unique.

The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project
BY PETER SVARZBEIN
@ VOL 13
ON JUN 23, 2016
"These were vehicles of economic mobility."
In The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol. 13, Peter Svarzbien shares his project to get El Paso's trolleys running again as they did in their heyday. Svarzbien is a photographer, artist and now city Councilman of El Paso. He once imagined the historic streetcars returning to the streets of El Paso again with his MFA masters thesis "The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project." Several years later, this project no longer resides only in our imaginations as the first tracks are now being laid in the streets of El Paso for the new streetcar line. With El Paso's first streetcar line in many years now under construction Peter is not content to stop here, but is now gathering political support to push for the restoration of trolley service over the international bridge - reconnecting Juarez and El Paso's fabled international streetcar service. Peter's presentation inspires us to consider how art can operate on a grand city scale to improve our quality of life.

The honorable Mayor of the City of San Elizario, Maya Sanchez tells the story of a group of determined individuals worked tirelessly to save their community by creating a new city in 2013. As president of this group, it was assumed that Maya would run for mayor, but she almost did not. However, having birthed this new entity, she quickly realized that she and the group of community organizers that made it happen must not stop with it’s creation and ensure that the young City was set on the right path.

Our 2012 global event had the goal of celebrating every PechaKucha Night city, worldwide. It was a weeklong celebration (February 20-26) that brought all PechaKucha organizers, presenters, and attendees together, with a focus on highlighting all of the amazing cities that make up the global PechaKucha community.
"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
Once a year on February 20th — the anniversary of PechaKucha’s founding — we celebrate the proliferation of worldwide creativity, and the amazing interconnectedness of cities from all over. PechaKucha Global Night is a coming together — a time where we recognise that each PechaKucha Night is not alone, but part of something greater. Find a PechaKucha Night in your city and join in the global festivities!

Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,
citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.

The 'Dear Hunter' are architects, but they are different from any other architect office. They're not striving for buildings: they're after the experience of people like you and me, regarding our surroundings. Their philosophy is based on techniques of the hunt.
Hunting transforms all our senses and makes us extremely aware of our surroundings. Through various hunting techniques they don’t hunt deer, but the dearest thing to man: subjective values within the human environment, personals spatial experiences and perception. They gather this information to use it in the fields of architecture, design and urban planning.

New York: City on a Grid
BY GERARD KOEPPEL
@ VOL 7
ON DEC 04, 2015
Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”
Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!
Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

The Belt Line: Hiding in Plain Sight
BY CHRIS HAWLEY
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"The Belt Line … will be the next phase in Buffalo’s sustainable development."
In The Belt Line: Hiding in Plain Sight from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 16, urbanist and preservationist, Chris Hawley, presents the Belt Line -- one of the most conspicuous and least-known features of Buffalo, NY. Each day, trains go by along it and people drive underneath and over it. It is the "third strand" in Buffalo's DNA, as important to the city's physical and economic geography as Joseph Ellicott's radial and grid plan and Frederick Law Olmsted's park and parkway system; as consequential to the city's development as the Erie Canal and Interstate Highway System.
The Belt Line was opened in 1883, with segments dating back to 1836. The rail line is 15 miles long, forming a continuous loop through Buffaloʼs downtown as well as the prominent industrial loft clusters that it helped to create. Today, the Belt Line's 12 million square feet of largely vacant or underutilized industrial space is the city's next frontier for sustainable development. Factory buildings are being recycled as mixed-use developments. These former industrial areas are becoming walkable centers again.

Transport and Urban Planning for People
Cars take up a lot of space and cost a lot of money, we need better ways to get people around cities. As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, "People need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices." Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. In "Transport and Urban Planning for People" from a special urban edition of PKN Auckland, we see that Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.
