The Seneca-Salamanca Leasehold Study

@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"They wanted to infuse architecture with research and they proposed to build a pedagogical process around project work."

In The Seneca-Salamanca Leasehold Study from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, Research Associate Professor 
at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, Bradshaw Hovey, Ph.D., recounts how one of the great student research projects from the school's 50-year history was devised by the school's founding leadership. One of the very first projects to engage UB students was a paid commission for the Seneca Nation of Indians to advise them on negotiations for a new lease between the nation and the residents of the City of Salamanca, NY whose homes sat on Seneca land. That such a project would be undertaken by architecture students was a signal about how expansively the founders of the school conceived of its professional domain.

How I Grew to Love and Make Indigenous Graphic Novels (and How I Became a Superhero)

@ VOL 39 ON SEP 05, 2019

Niigaan Sinclair is an Anishinaabe professor, writer, and activist who loves graphic novels. However, growing up, he noticed a lack of heroes that looked like him, and any mention of Indigenous people in comics are more often than not base caricatures or stereotypes. In this enligtening PechaKucha 20x20 talk, Niigaan tells us how Indigenous culture and graphic novels are connected, what he did to help counter the negative representation of Indigenous people in graphic novels, and how he himself became a hero.

Niigaan's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 39, on September 5, 2019, at the Park Theatre.

Transport and Urban Planning for People

Cars take up a lot of space and cost a lot of money, we need better ways to get people around cities. As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, "People need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices." Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. In "Transport and Urban Planning for People" from a special urban edition of PKN Auckland, we see that Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.
