Improvising is Harder than It Looks (and sometimes it looks hard)

BY PETE ASHTON
@ VOL 24 ON FEB 20, 2016

At Pecha Kucha Coventry we have occasionally played with the form and offered up random images for presenters to improvise a presentation on the night. In this case, from our 'What I would do with an extra day" Leap-Year inspired PK, Pete Ashton didn't have an extra day to prepare this PK, so he took 20 random images from Flickriver.com and aimed to weave a narrative for them and us...does he succeed?

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.

Ackroyd & Harvey

Today we highlight another presentation from this month's inaugural edition of PechaKucha Night in Southend-on-Sea -- yesterday we featured media artist Damien Robinson -- this time with the works of Ackroyd & Harvey (Dan Harvey was the presenter). Here's a bio on the duo: Sculpture, photography, architecture and ecology are some of the disciplines that intersect in the work of Ackroyd and Harvey. Nature and structure, control and randomness are juxtaposed in their work to reveal a time-based practice with intrinsic bias towards process and event. They are acclaimed for their work with the light sensitivity of seedling grass and its ability to record complex photographic images, and have exhibited in galleries, museums and sites worldwide, articulating the seductions of time and visibility inherent in the transient organic image. In 2007 they realised FlyTower on the exterior of London’s National Theatre, whereby they grew the entire north and west face of the landmark Lyttelton flytower with seedling grass. In 2003 they grew the entire interior wall space of a deconsecrated and disused concrete church in south London (Dilston Grove). Twist, a permanent landmark sculpture opened in December 2008. Visible on entry into Bristol from the M32, the 20-metre high tower is clad in an intensive layering of thin dark grey slates – a waste material from the roofing industry – and is lit using power generated from a combination of solar energy and wind power. Over the last few years they have made a series of expeditions to the High Arctic with Cape Farewell, looking at the effects of global warming on the ecosystem. PKN Southend-on-Sea Vol. 2 is set to take place April 29.

Build in London

Michael C. Place of Build presented at last week's PechaKucha event at the Design Museum in London, and in this blog post, he walks us through each image of his presentation. Here's the description for the image above (slide #2):I got this holy-grail of design books whilst working at The Designers Republic. We were asked to work the weekend on a job and were offered money, or a copy of 'Mode en Module', everyone chose the book. Mine is especially dear to me as it's signed by Wim (the only other thing I have ever asked to be signed was a Harlem Globetrotters catalogue in 1985!).
