The Architecture of Entitlement

BY EMMA FULLER
@ 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.

Talking to Yourself

BY RAY FENWICK
@ VOL 16 ON DEC 05, 2013

Artist-of-all-sorts Ray Fenwick speaks to a crowd and to you (if you listen) about talking to one's self. He points out the fact that our voice is a huge part of our identity, but in many cases we don't acknowledge that it is the embodiment of our thoughts while still remaining a function of our body. Because our voice is at the crossroads of our psychological and physiological being, it can be surreal and disconcerting to practice, but Ray encourages us all to see what comes out!

Local Markets, Global Interactions

BY LAUREN WAGNER
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

Commerce is so ubiquitous that we do not even see it as a center for the exchange of goods and ideas. Are the market places the hearts of the cities that pump and distribute the flow of human activity or the brain where the personality of a city resides?

Lauren Wagner is an Assistant Professor in Globalisation and Development and shares her work on social and linguistic encounters in the Maastricht market.

The Pattern Language of Taos Architecture

A city's architecture tends to tell you a lot about that city, and in this presentation, Rachel Preston Prinz highlights various architectural trends that you'll find in the city of Taos, New Mexico -- for example, those ornate bars on the image above are a reaction to the city's proximity to the "frontiere." It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Taos Vol. 3.

The Secrets of Body Language

Body language is more powerful than you may think. Everybody communicates through body language and sends out signals that communicate much more about you, your true intentions and what is on your mind than what you are aware of. At PechaKucha Night Ubud #20, Sandhi Spears will share why he thinks that by being conscious about other people’s non-verbal signals, you are not only improving your communication skills, but also understanding yourself better.

Penticton Vol. 2

Penticton's second Pecha Kucha night was a great success!  We had a great turn out which, for a small city, attests to the appeal of the Pecha Kucha format. The presentations covered a diverse range of subjects by some really amazing people.  Austin Hawkins spoke of his personal journey and vision as an architect in a way that made you see what his heart truly desires from his own practice.  Michele Johnson shared the conception and successful launch of the language revitalization school for the Indigenous Okanagan People.  Peter Wolf gave an emotive and insightful journey of his meditative growth over 1 year constructing a house designed by Landform Architects.  Emily Elizabeth shared beautiful images that inspired the guests and explained some of the creative process involved in making her amazing beautiful jewelry pieces.   To wrap it up Vince Freeborn celebrated the first year anniversary of his email journal The High Scribe.  As always, Vince made the crowd laugh and the High Scribe experience was made complete with a sticker book of his 20 x 20 Pecha Kucha slides!  It was a brilliant idea and had our guests greedily grabbing and trading stickers to be the first to fill up their books!   Unfortunately I did not record the presentations correctly so once I reformat them I will post them for you to watch. We have already filled up the next roster for the January 2016 Pecha Kucha night!  That is how inspiring these nights are!   Check out Vince Freeborn's sticker book here.  If you like his drawings and want to see more go to www.thehighscribe.com and get subbed up!  In my opinion it is one of the best newsletters out there.

English = Time + Tenacity + Tears

“English is a frankenstein's monster. It's a hodgepodge abomination of rules that we break all the time.” In English = Time + Tenacity + Tears from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd Volume, student and literary enthusiast Ṣeyi Adebanjo, discusses her frustration with the “global language”. The real world is full of puzzles, all of which are more or less systematic. To her the English language itself is the most complex puzzle of all. Though she found learning the convoluted language to be a challenge, her tenacity as both a bibliophile and writer eventually paid off; the end product was worth it.
