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 Whangarei Vol. 3
As organizer Kara Dodson tells us, PechaKucha Night is rocking Whangarei, with lots of love coming from last week's audience at Vol. 3. We had about 250 at the last one, complete with 2 people signing all of the presentations for those of the deaf community who were in the room. I did a presentation this time too -- very exciting. We also included one off the main website too -- which was excellent of course -- we chose Gary Cheng's "Transformer Apartment." There are a few photos from the event in this Flickr photoset, and below is a rundown of all the participating presenters. Steve Haywood - Collaborations- My Journey Emily Kernot - Journalism: A Definition Thereof. Sandy-Lee Bell - Hong Kong Foodie Richard Dean - Marine Environment Redevelopment Cathy Tuato’o Ross - Constructing the Worlds’ Scenic Wonderland Jasmine Fuller - Life is a Special Occasion Gary Cheng - Transformer Apartment (off the PKN website) Dianne Stoppard - A Selection of Photos Karen Sidney - 'Giants' of NZ Film - (Merata, Barry and Don) Kara Dodson - The Art of Andrew Clemens Beverly Kaye - More than Meets the Eye Mr MD Tarry, the Noted Horse Fancier and Doyen of the Equine Arts - Thoughts and Sentiments on the Nature and Quality of Horses

Time for another PechaKucha Night in Chicago, with Vol. 17 now scheduled to happen March 1 at Martyrs' -- see the list of presenters so far on the official event page, which includes Bill Ayers, Kevin Coval, and journalist Melissa Harris. The poster for the event was designed by Mike Vendiola. Also, here's a piece from the Chicago Tribune on the previous edition.
Architectural Tips in Catania, a Zen Approach to Life, and the Reason PechaKucha Is Great for You
We're trying something a bit different today, and instead of producing a few separate posts, we're creating a one-stop post with all of the day's news and interesting links. Do let us know what you think. Presentations First off, of course, comes the presentations. As we've been doing lately, we've added two new presentations: Hear Emanuele Fidone cover key aspects of architecture as he shares his works (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10), or let Peter Harris guide you through the inner workings of zen (from PKN Waterville Vol. 6). And if you've been wondering just how global our presentations are, this page should clue you in -- we have 63 cities represented, with of course new cities sending us presentations every day. Posters And you do remember about our fantastic PKN poster Tumblr, right? Every single poster we receive from our global organizers goes up there, and today's additions includes posters/flyers for PKN Coruna Vol. 6, PKN Rockford Vol. 1, PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 12, and PKN Sacramento Vol. 17. Links There's also been some great PechaKucha chatter around the net, and here are a few links that we'd like to share today (and we'll be sharing more links like this on a regular basis, so keep the coverage coming):"20 Reasons Why PechaKucha Is Great for You" [Marcin Retecki Photography]"PechaKucha Returns to Eartha Unlimited" [Columbus Underground] -- we sure love that venueSome great press for PKN Washington, first in the Huffington Post ("D.C.'s Search for the Next Steve Jobs & Other Artistic Pursuits") and in this piece by the Urban Times in LondonCalendar Here's wishing you a fantastic weekend, and don't forget to check the PechaKucha calendar to find out what PechaKucha Night you can attend over the next few days (hint: we're in Cleveland, Ferrol, Guatemala City, Lausanne, Manizales, and Bandung tonight, and in Springfield, MO and Helsinki tomorrow).
The Tabitha Foundation in Cambodia and Behind the Scenes of PKN Barcelona
In this presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 4), Dianne Parker talks about her passion project: an upcoming journey to volunteer with the Tabitha Foundation in Cambodia to build much needed homes for displaced families. Benjamin Julve has been documenting PechaKucha Nights in Barcelona since the series' inception in 2008. This is a special "behind the scenes" presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Barcelona Vol. 14) that includes just a few of the hundreds of photos he has taken so far.
PK Special: Chicago | UK
Two Fridays ago, from the heights of Olympia Center in Chicago, in the residence of the British Consul General, a very special PechaKucha eve was held. British creatives residing in the Windy City presented on topics aplenty: Tom Burtonwood and Mike Moceri let us peer into the world of 3D printing with a MakerBot presentation, Michael and Dianne Jackson discussed married life, Kenny G, and twins (we're sure there's a line to be drawn through those three topics), and Robert Chatterton Dickson chatted a ton about his life as a British diplomat. The home of Robert and Teresa Albor was opened to about 100 frequenters of PeckaKucha Night Chicago, and all entry funds went to Vanavevhu: a charity benefiting children in Zimbabwe. As you can see, the downtown city-view was downright impressive, which may have you asking, "Can we get much higher?" Well yes, in fact, the highest PechaKucha soirée was for Inspire Japan -- held in Roppongi Hills Mori Tower's 52nd floor. Anyone up to challenge Tokyo's title? A full album of photos from this affair can be found on PKN Chicago's event page.
"Middle schoolers are not just our future. They have the ability to investigate real change, starting now." In TomTod Ideas from PechaKucha Night Akron Vol.3, Joel Daniel Harris shares on TomTod Ideas which gives middle schoolers a serious avenue to explore creativity. Harris is the founder and Executive Dreamer of TomTod Ideas, an innovation incubator for middle school students, centered on launching students’ dreams for the common good. Rarely does anyone expect much of anything from a middle schooler. The fact is, though, that early adolescence, that liminal space in which middle schoolers reside, is a place of beauty, opportunity and imagination. Get ready to re-consider what we think "kids" are capable of.
