Glass That Produces Heat, Killing Architecture, and Birthday Wishes from Catania
Presentations In this presentation, part of a special PKN event in Miami (Vol. 14) that dealt with sustainability and the environment, Roz Gatewood introduces EnergyGlass, a type of window that can produce heat. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) by Laco Tousek is about social exclusion and spatial segregation, and the social anthropologist's point of view on sharing urban spaces. Who wants to kill the street? Developers, politicians, and architects -- they are the creators of the barriers between people interaction. Using several samples of high valued architecture projects from all over the world, he portrays architecture as a killer of public spaces. Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of our recent uploads, in this case the poster you see above for PKN Bogota Vol. 9, happening on October 12. Video The video above was produced by PKN Catania has a "happy birthday" message to PKN Tokyo a few months ago (when we were celebrating our 9th anniversary), and it's fantastic. Calendar Tonight (September 26) we have our PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 at SuperDeluxe, where PK was born, as well as the following events: PKN Glasgow Vol. 10, PKN Skovde Vol. 9, PKN Lille Vol. 1, PKN Coventry Vol. 10, and PKN Providence Vol. 42.

In this presentation from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 3, world renowned glass artist Keith Rowe discusses his favourite thing, color, which he gets to work with on a daily basis.
Illusory Glass Structures
We've always desired an escape from gravity, and we've always been tied to our shadow. What if we were free from both? In "Illusory Glass Structures", today's edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 72), architect Dirk Jan Postel -- one of the world's leading proponents of glass in building construction -- discusses the innovative usage of this transparent structural material: how it allows architects to make additions to existing historical buildings, seemingly levitate large concrete slabs, and creatively let light enter or exit spaces.
Top 5 Presentations Constructed of Glass, Steel, Concrete
Whether it be built of glass, poured-in-place concrete, or steel I-beams, the big bad whole may huff and puff, but he'll never blow these structures down. These are the top 5 PechaKucha 20x20 presentations related to buildings, construction, and architecture. First, we hear from Gary Cheng, whose tiny Hong Kong apartment has innumerable transmutations. (Transformer Apartment) Then we listen to Bob Berkebile's experiences with failure, and how it drove him to improve upon the architectural status quo. (Failure) Filipe Balestra discusses the importance of placement when constructing public works projects in urban villages. (Acupuncture Architecture, Urban Villages) Emma Brooke then takes us on a tour through the harsh, unfeeling (yet somehow beautiful) world of brutalist architecture. (Brutalism) And as a bit of a crossover with last week's top 5 of the animal kingdom, Roland Hagenberg describes the construction of a house meant for humans and a feathered friend. (Storkhouse)
Heroes of Wood, Glass, Steel
In today's Presentation of the Day, "Heroes of Wood, Glass, Steel" from the Global Night edition of PKN Tokyo (Vol. 106), Keiji Ashizawa shows off some of his amazing work with steel and aluminum, as well as the lighting, wood, and glasswork of those he collaborates with. Keiji discusses his metalworking career, his group of industrious glass and wood-working friends, and the structures and furniture he built for those in the tsunami-affected area of Ishinomaki, Japan.

Glass is HOT!
"What began for me and others who participated in a 1972 Chihuly workshop, 40 years later is an amazing expression of the creative spirit captured in glass." In "Glass is HOT" from PechaKucha St. Joseph Vol. 2 Jerry Catania share's his love for making glass art. He dives into his interesting history of being a student of famed experimental glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and how that experience led him to pioneer and cultivate over a decade of healthy and successful creative workshops and programs with a community that cherishes its new found glass culture in St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Michigan where he and his wife Kathy run the Water Street Glassworks.
