Just 4 weeks after the events of 3/11 in Japan, the worldwide PechaKucha community came together to "Inspire Japan." Over $85,000 was raised for Architecture for Humanity and ArchiAid during a non-stop 24-hour PechaKucha event that circled the globe. The process of re-growth is ongoing, and presentations will continue to be added as we continue to inspire.
117 PechaKucha Night cities came together to raise money for reconstruction in Haiti on the 20th of February, 2010, just 4 weeks after the earthquake. Raising $79,000 for Architecture for Humanity, the money has helped build a school, which opened in November of 2011.
ArchiAid was formed soon after the devastating events of 3/11 in Japan. Many of Japan's leading architects joined forces with students of architecture to help design and rebuild some of the hardest hit coastal areas.

"Architecture has no scale. It can go from a backpack to a city."In Taking Architecture Beyond, from Tokyo, Vol. 125, student of "future master" Sou Fujimoto, fellow architect Marcello Galiotto talks about the process of not only interpreting an abstract concept architecturally, but pushing it beyond its architectural limitations. In this highly sophisticated presentation, Galiotto shares his insights in combining imaginative references of architecture, nature, and structure into real living spaces. Enjoy!
Community Participation and Architecture
"We wanted every design decision that we made to be affordable, made locally, and something that could teach a skill."In Community Participation and Architecture, from PechaKucha Night New Orleans, Vol. 17, architect Mary Gilmore, shares her master’s thesis on Community Participation and Architecture. Her belief is that if people participated in the design and construction of a building, not only will they become stake holders in the process, but also learn something. To put her thesis into practice, Mary moved to India and then later to Mali, West Africa with the Peace Corps. Now as a practicing architect here in the states, she is has rediscovered the notion of community participation and architecture.

In MOTION + eMOTION: The Aesthetics of Movement in Architecture from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 10, Negar Kalantar explores the concept of transformability as a novel architectural design tool. In her work, motion itself is the design intention. Her creations take advantage of both the perceptual and functional qualities that movement can offer.
British Brutalist Architecture
"We've come so far in our taste and appreciation for these buildings that you can buy models of them." In British Brutalist Architecture from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15, Jon Wright shares his love of Brutalist Architecture and in particular his love of the examples of this severe form of art in Britain. Jon's PechaKucha helps to get rid of a few pervasive myths about Brutalism. He also shows you what buildings we've lost (he would describe this as a disaster!), and how we saved the ones we do have with the meta-narrative being the cyclical nature of popular architectural taste and public opinion, how that is formed and how it manifests itself in popular culture.
