PechaKucha Presentation

Snowflakes for Easton

PRESENTED ON JAN 22, 2016
IN EASTON @ VOL 3

"In Just 20 Days, 27,162 snowflakes were cut and installed around the downtown. Something as simple as paper snowflakes had succeeded in uniting the entire community."

Downtown Easton was not always the vibrant place it is today. One critical element in the city's renewal as been the work of the Easton Main Street Initiative. In Snowflakes for Easton from PechaKucha Night Easton's Vol. 3, Main Street Manager Kim Kmetz recalls an initiative that captured the city's collective imagination, and sparked a new wave of civic engagement.

Snowflakeology

BY MARK DYTHAM
@ VOL 131 ON DEC 16, 2015

"On the 27th of January, 1887, a snowflake apparently fell in Montana, and it was 57cm (22.4in) across ...but they have no proof of that."

In SnowFlakeology from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 131, PK co-founder Mark Dytham drops some cold hard science on frozen crystals falling from the sky. Whether elaborating on 2-dimensional radiating dendrites crystals, or 3-dimensional Gohei-twin type flakes, or digital ASCII/Unicode icy forms, it's crystal-clear he's done his homework. Simply put, Mark's extensive snowflake knowledge is...well...chilling.

...he definitely didn't flake on this PechaKucha! It snow joke!

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, December 25th, 2015.

Using Snow to Build a Better City

BY DARREN PROULX
@ VOL 27 ON FEB 16, 2017

“There’s an abundant resource that’s available to all winter cities, right below our feet, that could help us produce better, user-informed designs.”

Darren Proulx, Urban Planning Engineer with Slow Streets, explains how to start thinking about snow as less of a nuisance and more of a tool for cities— and how we can use it, literally, as a building block or even a guide to designing better public spaces.
