The Incredible Stories of Wooden Buildings
BY MARTIN RAJNIŠ
@ VOL 8
ON JUL 14, 2012
The presentation contains stories about wooden buildings that were realised in the Czech Republic by Martin Rajnis and his students. The buildings are inspired by traditional dwellings found in many parts of the world, that are friendly to the environment and, for the most part, very cheap. Martin also points out the bureaucratic system that affects Czech building policies. (in Czech)
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.

Presenters will include photographer Armin Linke, physicist Martin Springer, and Volvo expert Robert Richter.
Continuing with our look at presentations from PechaKucha Night in London Vol. 2 -- you could say it's London week here on PechaKucha Daily -- here's one from artist and climber (how's that for a combination) Martin Barret. Artist and climber Martin Barret takes us on a high level tour of his inspirations -- and contemplates how it might be nice to die from a bespoke object!

Sketchbook of Life
Today's edition of "Presentation of the Day" asks us to think on a major paradigm of our existence: the division of work and life. In his presentation (from PKN Stockholm Vol. 21) Martin Willers questions the necessity of this partitioning, and he does so while giving us a tour through his sketchbook. Willers addresses the 5-day work week and humanity's march down path of industrialism. We continue to build, to create, to work, but we also continue to waste. Is it really necessary for us to follow this incline? You be the judge.
