Smart about our Shit

BY BARBARA PENNER
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Being smart about our "shit", is what may save us in the future. 

Barbara Penner expresses her academic knowlegde of toilets and what goes into them. How much do we flush away, and what people can do to conserve their waste, not only the "stuffs" that goes through us, but the water that is going through the pipes as well. It doesn't take a 'rocket surgeon' to know, that in developing countries, water is scarce and highly valued. So it is a opportunity to develope toilets that do not need the use of water, and uses our human wastes intellegently.

Toto Toilets

BY FLOYD CASE
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE ON SEP 16, 2014

Floyd Case goes into the Japanese culture of bathing and hygiene, to understand Toto toilets. 35 years earlier, was when the first washlet was created and introduced to the public. Coming off intimidating, the washlet is made to clean you in more ways than one. Following the similar ritual of cleansing oneself at a Onsen, the washlet is made to clean you and itself, leaving you refreshed.

PKN Barcelona for Haiti

Not only do we get some great photos by Benjamin Julve -- with more to see in this Flickr photoset -- but here's also a rundown by organizer Petz Scholtus of this past Saturday's Haiti event in Barcelona, sent out as a newsletter to that city's mailing list. Last Saturday (20. Feb), all the hard work of organising a PechaKucha Night in Barcelona in less than 4 weeks paid off. PechaKucha Vol. 8 was a very special night with speakers that made us think, made us laugh or triggered curiosity, moved us and even taught us how to be sexy! The most beautiful thing about the event though, is the participation of many people towards one goal: raise money for Architecture for Humanity (AFH) and the reconstruction in Haiti. In Barcelona alone, we raised over 2.300€, yay! Within the next few days, we should know how much the more than 150 cities raised together in "PechaKucha for Haiti" this month! If you haven’t yet or feel generous again, please donate here. It all started on Saturday around 15:00 when Mark and Astrid (the incredible founders of PechaKucha) kicked of the global 24-hour WAVEcast via Ustream. At 18.30 the Barcelona PechaKucha took place at La Sedeta, who offered us the space for free so that all the money from the entrance tickets could go towards AFH. Giovanna Carnevali, an architect from Barcelona-based Architecture for Humanity Spain, kicked of the night with her presentation about the work AFH does in Haiti, as well as some projects the local chapter is working on. Next up was Chené Gómez, who spoke about his NGO Creart, and how it feels to be teaching art to kids in difficult situations (Palestina, India, Thailand after the Tsunami). Martí Guixé, ex-designer, presented his business models, such as “pfic bar,” a frozen public fountain that turns into a bar chilling drinks, or the “Liquid Menu Restaurant,” where as you might guess, all the dishes are liquid, and inspired by the Spanish gazpacho. When our stomach muscles were already hurting from so much laughter, Michelle Felip showed us her project “Pixing” (pronounce ‘pishing’), which campaigns for decent public toilets in Barcelona, also for girls! Xavi Padrós showed beautiful photographs called “anonyms.” The photos were of clever, funny and ingenious bothed jobs Padrós collected over the year in Barcelona. To finish of the first part of the night, Lily introduced us to the art of striptease and even taught us a few moves! After the beer break (thanks to Estrella Damm we had all our costs such as cleaning and security covered!), Gerard Sanmartí from La Granja design Studio, showed a ‘real’ project he did some years ago, of an exhibition design with floating pieces of art. Then, Jessica Leung took us on her personal journey from making movies in LA and quitting Hollywood in order to start Dos Velas with her partner Paco, to make documentaries in close contact with people of different cultures and ethics around the world. Architect Toni Solana presented his project of the Fábrica del Sol, an 8-year-long project of a eco-friendly renovation of an old gas factory, respecting the four elements of water, fire, earth and wind. Dress for Success, shown by Stephany Baskin, DfS Austin founder, is the story of how a woman gained back her self-esteem and changed her life by being given a dress along with a few tips for a job interview. A big dose of Catalan humour was handed to us by designer Marcel Fernández, and his curious story of how Amanito was born. To finish of the night, Ricardo Fernández, organizer of PechaKucha in Panamá, explained why his country is the country of steroids, and why the Panamanians wear a lot of clothes in winter (even if winter in Panama doesn’t exists!) Last but not least, Maximilian Kamenar from Pecha Kucha Vienna who also happened to be in town, greeted the very lively and cheerful audience. All through the last presentations, Doris and Victor from On i On, together with Aniol and Leonor from Ecogent, were waiting to join the live-streaming WAVEcast via PechaKucha Tokyo, but unfortunately we missed each other. We were however, connected by spirit and want to give kudos to Mark and Astrid, Tomoko and Jean and their team in Tokyo for organising this international Pecha Kucha x Haiti with so much enthusiasm and energy! Barcelona enjoys being part of the big picture! Thank you to everyone who donated to AFH and made it to our eighth PechaKucha in Barcelona, to the speakers who did an amazing job, to La Sedeta and Estrella Damm and to Tree-Nation for planting a tree for each speaker in order to reduce our event’s ecological footprint and to all our friends who helped out. We hope to see you in April for Vol. 9! And it was a PechaKucha reunion of sorts as well with, pictured below (from left) Ricardo from PK Panama, two members from the team bringing PK to Bilbao (coming soon), and Maximilan from PK Vienna.
