The Architecture of Entitlement

@ VOL 18 ON MAY 18, 2017

In a whirlwind PechaKucha presentation, architect Emma Fuller discusses a history of language and the city plan - how entitlement has created a new architectural tool for the powerful to dismantle the collective and empower the singular. See examples from Mussolini to Trump in this 20x20 !

Emma Fuller is an associate with Diane Lewis Architect PC and teaches architectural history and theory at Pratt Institute. She received her degree from the Cooper Union. Her work addresses architecture as art and memory. This is expanded upon in published essays, exhibitions and architectural projects including the "Richmond as a Work of Art" series, the IPA fellowship, the Green Ward and Michelangelo-La Tourette papers, and the Nebo House.

It's All About The VIBE

@ VOL 28 ON DEC 03, 2013

Martin Atkins gives a humorful and vulgar presentation about the transformation of objects of once higly admired, to lame, to lastly hip and vintage. He gives his own formula for this tranformation and tries to foresee what happens next. What he discovers will make you question the use of common words today. However, there is only one important thing which is VIBE.

Fori e design

@ VOL 10 ON FEB 24, 2016

Nelle mie nike ci sono migliaia di fori. Sono utili a permettere la traspirazione, una maggiore leggerezza, un forte   design ed identità.
Questa materia forata non è altro che un tessuto, definito da trama ed ordito, pieni e vuoti in rigoroso rapporto .
Al variare della percentuale e della dimensione del foro varia la funzione ed il contesto. Il foro  è sapienza produttiva, rappresenta, nell’assenza di materia, la capacità di utilizzare solo la quantità di materiale utile allo scopo. Attraverso un foro si può guardare  lo spazio , la città o il mare. Le tensioni si distribuiscono meglio attraverso di esso .
Un foro  o meglio in questo caso  una moltituidine di fori sono progetto che esce dalla fabbrica  per guardarvi attraverso.

Katoavat materiaalit - lumi, jää ja hiekka

@ VOL 7 ON AUG 17, 2017

Olen kuvataideopettaja, jonka intohimona on veistäminen katoavilla materiaaleilla - lumella, jäällä ja hiekalla.  

Veistäminen liittyy joko rakennettuun tai luonnon ympäristöön. Hiekka, jää tai lumi muutetaan taideteokseksi, jolle on annettu aihe. Ympäristötaiteessa on kyse ekologisen näkökulman lisäksi myös prosessista ja kohtaamisesta.

Mark Dytham Interviewed

Me Design magazine interviewed PechaKucha Night co-founder Mark Dytham, and even though most of the piece covers the architectural side of his life, you can bet that PKN is brought up as well. You can read the full interview online, but here's one section that deals specifically with PKN, including how it all started: At Super Deluxe we didn’t have enough events, we decided all 6 directors should take a night a week to try to make an event. We decided to take an event we have in our office every couple of months, invite some folks around, have some canapés and show some slides like most offices do I think. If we take that to Super Deluxe and we invite other people, we need about a hundred people eating and drinking to make Super Deluxe tick over for one night. So invite twenty people and they each bring five friends, that’s a hundred folks. But if they’re all like me they’ll talk and talk, that would be sad and would go on all night. So 20 slides, 20 seconds a slide, 20 people, and it opened the 20th of February, starting at 20 past eight, we wrapped the whole thing up in about 20 minutes it was nothing other than that, no other big plan and it was a way to keep Super Deluxe going. We opened the first night with about 100 people and next week will be our fiftieth event in Tokyo and we still get over 300 people. We never thought it would last for 50 events, and we never thought this event would happen in 107 countries. There was no business plan for that at all. We never asked anyone to run an event, we never sent out any press releases. People ask us, as was the case with design week in Tokyo, Icon magazine took it back to London, somebody took it to San Francisco, Artrid was speaking in Bern in Switzerland: somebody took it there, and off this thing went. We created a monster we are trying to control now. We will pop over to the upcoming event at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan. It’s quite insane. We have a new website and are setting up a foundation as we are sponsoring the whole event right now: funding the website and staff to look after it. So we are setting up a foundation which will be in place soon and are trying to use the network we’ve got in a really interesting way to connect people together. Any money we raise with the foundation we want to give back to the presenters, for social projects in their cities. Yeah it is nuts…but we are still architects, ok!

Learning About Animation, Kyiv's Iconic Architecture, and "Hearting" Parks in San Diego

Presentations Daniel Muñóz is a character animator, and in this presentation from PKN Miami Vol. 14 he explains the main principles and techniques required to produce animation work that manages to suck viewers in. Oleg Zhary is a photographer who lives and works in Kyiv, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he gives us all a stunning photographic tour of the capital of Ukraine through its iconic objects. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster above, for the upcoming PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Here's more from PKN San Diego organizer Leslee Schaffer on the poster, as well as the event itself:We are holding #15 at a venue in which we are hosting an exhibit for the next two weeks, called Orchids, Onions & Opportunities, an offshoot of our Orchids & Onions program. The exhibit strives to accomplish a lot of things; mostly, true to the mission of SDAF (and why PKN is such a great fit for SDAF) to raise awareness and encourage practical discourse about matters relative to our build environment. It’s focus is on San Diego’s civic spaces, and lack thereof. We usually don’t theme our PKNs, having found that an organically curated event keeps things interesting and works quite well for us. This time, because of the exhibit, and other complementary events we decided to offer Making the Case for Public Space as a theme, and keep it interesting by presenting a range of perspectives on the matter. As fro the event flyer, we are blessed with the support of someone we believe to be one of the most inspired artists/designers ever here in San Diego. Her name is Terri Beth Mitchell. You have already posted a couple of her PKN SD flyers on your site, and we thought this one deserved special attention. Photos We have a couple of photo galleries to share with you today.

Ice Cream Bells Are Ringing

Just last week in Chicago (at PKN Chicago Vol. 25), Michael and Diane Jackson gave a presentation on their 20 years of marriage. Little did Diane know that Michael had an extraordinary surprise in store for her: After waiting 20 years, Michael was finally able to give me my surprise wedding gift. In 1993 he had secretly booked and paid for a Mr. Whippy ice-cream van to be our getaway vehicle to take us to our honeymoon suite. We stood with our assembled guests outside Stanley House and waited. Sadly Mr. Whippy did not show. Michael has been harboring a sense of loss and regret ever since. Last night, following our PechaKucha presentation about the saga of our 20 years together, I hear that familiar sickly sound of ice-cream bells. Parked outside Martyrs was the vehicle of my dreams, complete with the customary beer cans (Boddingtons of course) tied behind. Please note Chicago had a major snow storm yesterday which makes this act of love even more unbelievable. We served ice-creams to everyone who attended PK and then set off into the night, bells ringing, cans clanking to our home in Rogers Park. I still can't believe my crazy husband. What's more, the owners keep the vehicles in storage over the winter and so the ice-cream van is now on my insurance. I am the luckiest girl in the world. Truth be told, upon the arrival of this little ice-cream truck, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Take a look at Chicago's Vol. 25 event page for more photos of this memorable event.

Extreme Ice Fishing

What's not extreme about freezing temperatures and hours of focus on a little red bobber? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Extreme Ice Fishing" from PKN Bemidji Vol. 16, John Eggers makes a pretty convincing case for the idea that ice fishing really ought to be considered an extreme sport. In a very humorous telling, John gives us the inside angle on the gear, technology, and gruff, rugged, manly demeanor necessary to endure this cold, unforgiving lifestyle.

A life-changing experience for many of the people who visit them in Antarctica, they also strongly resonate with people who will never visit – because they are, despite the odds, still standing.
