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.

Coaching – Schafe im Hörsal


Wie quetscht man 30 Schafe in einen Hörsaal, den es noch gar nicht gibt? Und wo findet man eigentlich einen bösen Wolf?

How Very Intimate


Thomas Klassnik gives various examples of what it is to use the toilet. It is a very personal and self serving room. To take the toilet and make it not only personal for yourself, but with others as well. Bringing the outside in, and the toilet to the table, it allows more chance to be intimate with everything and everyone around you, and let the world be intimate with you.

Das Geheimnis guter Reden und guter Vorträge liegt darin, dass nicht nur Zahlen, Daten und Fakten präsentiert werden, sondern dass die Vortragenden es schaffen die Präsentation in eine Geschichte einzuweben, oder eine Geschichte in die Präsentation zu bringen. Thomas Maile erklärt wie das funktioniert und warum das so ist.

We may not be able to read it, but we know that a lot of you can -- due to the long-running success of PechaKucha Nights in Germany -- and so here's some nice PKN-related coverage from Designervolk. Thanks go out to PKN Aalen organizer Thomas Maile for the heads-up.

Scott Thomas

As we've mentioned, the "PechaKucha for Haiti" efforts continue all this month, as we upload as many presentations as we can to the site to help raise money for the cause. One of the latest additions is this one, presented at the Chicago/Champaign-Urbana PechaKucha event on the 20th of last month, featuring Scott Thomas talking about how he helped design Obama's campaign. So instead of going out for a coffee, sit down for a few minutes and enjoy Scott's presentation, and then pitch in a few dollars to the reconstruction efforts.

Pictured in this post is an image from a presentation by Darren Paine, an engineer who talks about working with architects, and questioning the work itself: Why are we designing these things? What is their function?

Thomas Maile

The first presentation we highlight on the blog this week comes to us in German from PechaKucha Night in Aalen Vol. 1, featuring that city's organizer, Thomas Maile, talking about "Kreativitat in der Krise."


People Love the Format!

We often get messages from organizers following their PechaKucha Nights, sometimes as a full report that appears on the blog, or sometimes just a few short words to say that things went well. We did get a kick out of PKN Taos organizer Matthew Thomas message, following last week's PKN Taos Vol. 2: Event #2 was a complete success! Sold out, max capacity and they had to turn people away. PEOPLE LOVE THE FORMAT!
