Celebrating Tokyo's Creative Scene since 2003

@ VOL 162 ON JAN 16, 2019

Little did architecture duo Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham know when they devised a concise presentation format for sharing projects in their studio nearly 17 years ago, that their 20 slides X 20 seconds idea (that partner Yukinari Hisayama coined "PechaKucha") would become an amazing worldwide creative phenomenon. Let's see if they can sum up this amazing tale in 6 minutes and 40 seconds, on the stage from where it all started, SuperDeluxe

Astrid KleinMark Dythamが20秒×20枚の斬新なプレゼンテーション形式を提案し、それを聞いた同僚の久山幸成が ”ぺちゃくちゃ” しゃべるみたいだねと言ってから17年前。この何気ない会話から始まったPechaKuchaはいまや世界中に広まり、世界各地で新たなクリエイティビティを生み出しています。
