Transformative Motorcycle Design
BY MATTHEW ROBERTS
@ PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SPECIAL @ AUTODESK POP-UP
ON NOV 08, 2015
"The easiest way to describe what we do is like a two wheeled equivalent of the Eames LCW. We're looking for something that's timeless and embodies the essence of motorcycles."
Matthew Roberts of Speedtractor Industries, a custom motorcycle and design studio in Tokyo known from its elegant and personal custom creations, believes motorcycle design has finally come of age, to a place and time where people can appreciate the truest essence of motorcycling. Matthew discusses how a movement of bespoke design houses like his, offer riders and non-riders alike a glimpse of how a a new wave of contemporary design sense won't necessarily have to be rooted in a bygone time, nor will it likely loose it's mod look decades from now. An ultimately cool PechaKucha.

Integrative Design in Our Built Environment
BY GREER O'DONNELL
@ VOL 36
ON SEP 17, 2018
Greer O'Donnell is an urban strategist, entrepreneur and Director of the Urban Advisory, New Zealand's first dedicated urban strategy consultancy. Recently named a finalist in the Business Enterprise category of the Westpac-Stuff Women of Influence Greer is an agitator for change within her industry and in the way that we 'work', and in how we think about mental health and well-being.
The built environment exists only to serve people - at least in theory. The reality is, our 'man-made' environments are killing us. Through adopting an integrative approach to city building Greer uses examples from her journey working for the government on New Zealand's largest urban renewal programme (the Canterbury earthquake recovery), co-creating OHU (Office for Holistic Urbanism), the SYNC Collective, and the Urban Advisory and from a recent European study-tour of ethical development models, to explore how re-thinking city making (including our mobility systems) provides us with the opportunity to return balance to our living system; to people and to place.
