Dear Hunter

BY REMY KROESE
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 09, 2014

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.

Collage City

BY JEAN-MICHEL REED
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."

In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016.

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urban edition of PKN Auckland, we see that Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.

5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...

Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew.  You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.

PechaKucha People: Huwaida Ishaaq

Our City organizer down in Bandar Seri Begawan doesn't really need the Pechakucha People spotlight per se ...that's because she IS a spotlight. Huwaida Ishaaq sets the bar as high as it goes for working hard to connect people, creating the highest caliber of PechaKucha Nights. She proves the point that creativity is hidden in every corner of the globe, even in, and especially in, the tiny nation on the island of Borneo.

PKN Vientiane Vol. 4 Poster is here!

Sabaidee! We've had a summer full of rest and relaxation over here in Vientiane, so we've hit the ground running with our next PKN popping up at Timeline Cafe on Thursday, September 15 from 6pm. We've got a host of exceptional peeps presenting at this event, so we hope to see you there Vientiane! But don't get us wrong, it hasn't been all poolside cocktails and working on our tans... Over the summer Vientiane-based Lao designer Manilla Chounlamountri, has created a truly awesome poster for our upcoming Vol. 4 event. Manilla is an illustrator at heart, and while she usually draws in black and white, she didn't shy away from punchy hues for this work. We think it sums up the PechaKucha vibe perfectly: captivating, interesting, bold, and cool with just a tad of quirk thrown in! Many, many thanks to Manilla for this wonderful work. We can't wait to plaster them all over town for the community to see!
