City Living Room

Before the late nineteenth century, the living room of a house was called a ‘parlor’ in the West. The term parlor was derived from a French verb ‘parler’ which means ‘to speak’. The term was given to the space because it was mainly a place where we gather and share personal stories that interest us-, are on our mind and inspire us.

When we consider a city also as a space where people settle down and decorate their live, the concept of “living room” has a wider meaning. It can refer to a platform in the city - such as the living room in a house - where people can gather and share ideas, make friends and embrace opportunities.

With the topic “City Living Room”, we talk about buildings and housewares, infrastructure and city development, activities in daily life and challenges and opportunities in the global context. This seasonally organized social gathering for the creative industry can be described as our city's "parlor". As - just like a living room - PechaKuchaNight Chengdu is a spot to share stories in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. In collaboration with the Chengdu International Home Design Week, we present to you volume 13: City Living Room.

城市文化·跨界而居

在19世纪晚期,人们会把房子里的客厅称作“parlor”——对话发生的地方。这样的命名象征着对于“客厅”的最初定义:来自四面八方的朋友们聚集、交流和分享的地方。

当我们把一座城市有当作更大范围的“居住空间”——人们在这里定居、装扮生活、追逐梦想——那么城市的这个“客厅”又是什么呢?它也许就是来自不同行业,不同地域的人们汇聚在一起,交流思想、寻找共鸣的平台。

 本期PechaKucha携手“成都国际家居设计周”,依托“客厅”这个意象,并扩大它的范畴:在“城市文化·跨界而居”的主题下,我们希望探讨城市文化的更迭与建设;生活方式的演变与突破;也希望分享在现代城市背景下,日常生活的机遇和挑战。城市文化根植于每一天的生活细节,而“跨界”已然成为人们习以为常的生活方式;我们在文化中沉淀,拥抱生活,跨界而居。
