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 in The Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal ran a great story in August about PechaKucha Night. Read the article The Sounds of Chatter by Juro Osawa here...
Yes, PechaKucha Night in Vancouver Vol. 6 is indeed sold out, but here's a touching presentation from the previous volume, in which photojournalist Jeff Topham reflects -- through photography taken by his father -- about his childhood growing up in Liberia. He follows that up with a look at what he experienced when he returned to that country a few years ago.
Here's a great -- and hilarious -- presentation from last month's PechaKucha Night in Vancouver Vol. 6 by designer Jeff Hamada, taking us on a tour of the evolution of his work, starting from the mind maps he was making as a 6 years old. The video was filmed and edited by Bruce Sharpe.
Flyer for PKN Fresno Vol. 3
PechaKucha Night in Fresno Vol. 3 happens tonight (June 8) at Starline, and presenters for the evening will include: Fresno's Downtown and Community Revitalization Department Director Craig Scharton, custom furniture designer Adam Wall, and Floyd Sanchez of Antilabs.
Wouldn't you like more living space? What if your living space adapted instantly for you? In today's edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 66), we feature a man who has made these ideas a reality. Gary Cheng has lived in the same 32m2 space in Hong Kong since 1976. Over the years he has lived there with family, colleagues, and ultimately alone. As a result, the ways this space have been used have changed drastically. By 2006 he had incorporated numerous modular units that have mulitple functions. In total, his apartment has 45 permutations: pulling out the TV wall expands the kitchen, rolling out the CD shelves reveals the bathtub. His sofa becomes a bed, and flips up into the wall; the shower room doubles as a phone booth. The functions are seemingly endless, and the interior design is beautiful.
Once again, a Kamikaze speaker is prepared to put his wits on the line for 20 images that he has never seen before. Prepare to be blown away by the courage of a simple man. And Braam, ran 4 200 km along the entire length of the Great Wall of China in a single attempt. This translated to running over a marathon a day for over 100 days! Scientists said this was impossible. Also the magical world of bee keeping and a glimpse into the fascinating life of a honey bee -we humans have so much to learn from these little creatures!

The Local Artist
“We came up with this when we were ice fishing — the idea was to pull artists up from below the surface.” South Dakota natives Jeff Ballard, Mitch Torbert, and Hunter Murphy discuss their burgeoning zine project: The Local Artist. In “The Local Artist” from PKN Sioux Falls Vol. 11, they speak on their efforts to expose local artists to the public, and cultivate the growth of the creative industry in their home state.

v.39 presenter showcase
CRUMBLE MAGAZINE PROJECT Crumble Magazine are holding an afternoon of open discussion to create an architectural ‘magazine wall’ full of your ideas responding to our theme ‘Conflict / Resolution’ Crumble’s method revolves around creation through discussion; the Crumble Magazine Project will involve open discussion and collaborative creation, leading to a ‘magazine wall’ full of ideas all in a single afternoon! The theme of our latest issue is ‘Conflict/Resolution’: how does conflict manifest on a local, national and international level and how do we even start resolving it? The afternoon’s challenge will be shaping these ideas into paragraphs, poems, doodles and illustrations, which we can bring together for reflection and consideration at the end of the day. We are holding this event in conjunction with Crumble’s third issue ‘Conflict / Resolution’, due to launch June 2018.
