Columbus and I Make Discoveries

BY CATHERINE ONYEMELUKWE
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 12, 2015

Catherine Onyemelukwe joined the Peace Corps in 1962, when it was a new organization, and Nigeria, where she was assigned, was newly independent. 

Catherine's PechaKucha presentation on Columbus Day is connected to her memoir, Nigeria Revisited My Life and Loves Abroad, published in 2014. She shares her discoveries connected to Columbus and European "discoveries" of new land. Many Native Americans believe Columbus Day should be abolished, saying that to honor a man who "ushered in genocide against indigenous peoples as well as the transatlantic slave trade,” is not reason for a holiday. In 24 years living in Nigeria, Catherine discovered non-Western traditions that are rich and meaningful, just as Native American traditions are. Some were denied validity by British colonizers based on the Doctrine of Discovery, just as Native American's rights were denied by that Doctrine, first by the American colonizers and then U.S. leaders.

My New Everyday Life

BY NORA AMES
@ PECHAKUCHA NIGHT AT THE CHICAGO ARCHITECTURE BIENNIAL ON OCT 30, 2015

“Obviously, living in a wheelchair is a challenge but is a normal life for many. Wheelchair living requires constant mapping out of acceptable routes and services –like bathrooms– and destinations –like restaurants.”

In My New Everyday Life Speaker Nora Ames reprises her standing ovation presentation from the Chicago Architecture Biennial at PechaKucha Chicago’s 36th Volume.  

Nora used to enjoy runs by Lake Michigan, running by herself or with coworkers and friends. 13 months ago she had a medical condition taking her out of the workplace and changing her perspective forever. In this presentation the effect of design on accessibility is discussed.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, February 15th, 2016.

Mass Timber: Changing the Way We Build Our Cities

BY ROBERT JACKSON
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Mass timber is really the newest way to build a building in over 100 years. Thanks to new manufacturing technologies, these massive blocks of wood are allowing engineers to push the limits of what timber can do as a structural material. I’ll be sharing my experiences of working and designing with timber, why I’m inspired by it, and how it’s changing the way we build our cities.
