Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975
BY CHARLES L. DAVIS, II, PH.D.
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"We started with several books that looked at the brownstone as a site of intervention."
In Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975 from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Charles L. Davis, II, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, shows works from his recent exhibition project, Building Black Utopias, and discusses the literature that served as inspiration.
The Building Black Utopias project combines the tools of the architect, the historian and the literary critic to recover the historical contributions of African American writers to architectural utopian thought. It specifically examines the role of literary depictions of place in June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Paule Marshall and Angela Davis’ writings. Davis argues that each authors’ rhetorical manipulations of the built environment operates on the same level as architectural utopian thought insofar as both mediums created rich, alternative depictions of modernist space to liberate the architect’s imagination. The final exhibit translates the spatial ideas of literature into drawings, models and other ephemera.

PKN Denver Vol. 4
Denver celebrated its fourth edition of PKN last week, packing the Buntport Theater with over 175 attendees. What you're seeing above is the continuation of that city's cell-phone spelling project, where each member of the audience was asked to spell either P, K, or N in the air with their phone's screen. Below, the scene at Vol. 3, where everyone was asked to spell the first letter of their name. PKN Denver's Angela Schwab mentioned that it would be interesting to see something similar done in other cities, or even some sort of coordinated effort for audience photos. So how about it? For more photos from last week's event, have a look at this Flickr photoset, and thanks again to Angela and Jaime Kopke for providing such great coverage. Vol. 5 will be held April 21, so get in touch if you'd like to give a presentation.

Ever heard tell of a pirate named Bubblebeard? How about Captain Confetti? ...anyone? Karla Davis and James Abercrombie have a daughter who loves books and pirates. So they did the only logical thing, they made a childrens book and filled with with poems about and pictures of pirates. In "Unfamous Pirates" from PKN Atlanta Vol. 20 they share the creative inspiration for the poetry (Shel Silverstein), as well as the illustration style they were going for, and detail the process of the book's creation. A few of the poems are shared here too, so pull up a seaweed-coated sofa, grab some mussel-munchies and give this one a listen.
