A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space

BY JOANNA GILLESPIE
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"This is my 6-minute memoir. A mediation on impermanence."

In A Brief Memoir of Architecural Space from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, independent arts consultant and co-organizer of PechaKucha Buffalo, Joanna Gillespie, delivers a meditation on twenty of the fifty places she has lived since birth. From Victorian-era structures in Buffalo, NY and San Francisco, CA, to the wilds of the 1970's California coast, to modern and efficient rural Japan, to a Postmodern art utopia in Maine, and beyond, Gillespie recounts a particular memory from each space. Through all of the temporal landscapes we find ourselves in, Gillespie concludes, "We forge on, either clumsily or assuredly. We keep on keeping on." Even if we move fifty times.

The Home Stretch: Ending Family Homelessness in Dane County

BY SARAH CEPONIS
@ VOL 25 ON FEB 15, 2018

Over 500,000 people reside in Dane County, but not all of those people actually have a place to call home. United Way and its partner agencies have made great strides over the past decade in ensuring homelessness is rare and brief, but there is still important work to be done-and if we each step up to play a part, we can end family homelessness here.

More News from Chile

We recently updated you a few times in regards to the situation in Chile thanks to emails from PKN Concepcion organizer Alejandra Sepulveda -- and the latest is that she is preparing a PechaKucha presentation describing what she's gone through, that will go online. We were also relieved to hear back from PKN Santiago organizer Emilio Marin, and here's some of what he had to share: I'm OK, and I feel really lucky. The BIG earthquake was very traumatic. 8.8 Richter and 7.5 here in Santiago. The images of the BIG EARTHQUAKE and the TSUNAMI are very shocking. The Earth is still moving, this past Thursday we had an earthquake of 6.9 Ritcher here in Santiago. The zone of the earthquake will take a least 2 years to get back on track, and obviously this is affecting our nation, in every way, economic, political and social. I am now in the organization behind the next Biennale of Architecture in Chile. After the earthquake, we have changed all our efforts into focusing on the issue of reconstruction, as the architect can and must play an important role. Universities are organized, and they will contribute to re-construction projects in Chile. But I think it would be very interesting to have ideas from around the world. It is very strange, but Chile has a history of natural disasters. In fact, the world's largest quake occurred in Chile in 1960. A basic emergency housing has not yet been designed, which is more than just a tent. Right now people are in need of protection from the rain, and also need a house with a bathroom, to avoid health problems. I think there is a first stage of an emergency -- a tent, or something more worthy and useful -- but a second stage is planned as something definitive (temporary schools, hospitals, etc.), with also a final third stage of reconstruction. And as you know, many of these solutions are subject to an important economic factor. Emilio also points us to this photo-heavy look at the chaos caused by the earthquake.

RWC - Vol 1 Update!

Wow!  Our first event was amazing!  Thanks to our tech folks - no glitches during our event.  We managed to record it two ways - with presenters via camera and room and slides with audio via computer.  Our first time presenters were STELLAR!  The theme selected in partnership with the San Mateo County History Museum created a wonderful frame for the evening.  Although our audience was very modest, we had a surprise guest from HQ - Stephen Leist, who offered us nothing but support and encouraging feedback.  It was a wonderful surprise and you can see video via Fuse Theatre's facebook page.  We will have the presentations up very soon!  Congrats and cheers to all our presenters, attendees and followers!   Stacey
