A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space

@ 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.

Mr Solo

For today's presentation we try something a bit different, as we hand over the mic to Mr Solo for a musical art tour -- and if you find yourself falling in love with that Chad Valley projector, here's THE site on the subjet. Mr Solo sings in 20x20 to his original paintings and his Chad Valley "give a show" projector! ''It’s certainly close to what I aspire to such is the jarring dislocation of a live sound and pristine graphics. Loving it.'' - Mr Solo Look for Mr Solo on iTunes, and more Mikey Georgeson AKA Mr Solo art works can be found here.

PKN Norwich Vol. 1

The city of Norwich recently held it very first PechaKucha Night -- that's the poster for the event you see above -- and it sounds like it was an amazing launch. We'll soon have photos to share, but in the meantime, here's a report from organizer Jason Bill (and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page).[PKN Norwich Vol. 1] was a success. Lots of positive feedback, and well received. Whilst the Norfolk Association of Architects kindly funded renting the cinema screen, the director of the small arts cinema thought the event was great and has offered their bar to host future PechaKucha nights. Speakers for the event included Russell Brown of Hawkins\Brown [who recently completed a study for the Norwich School], Stefano Dal Piva of Acme architects [recently completed Hunset Mill], Hugo Keene of Mole Architects [and their involvement in this region with the projects], and John Winter, who designed a beautiful little Beach House in Norfolk. I know in principal that PechaKucha is an event for 'young designers' to meet, and I feel I have maintained true to that spirit with John Winter's youthful mind, but I wonder if last night we hosted the most senior PecahKucha presenter? I understand John is 84...! Also adding a little interest, as we switched from digital media to analogue...

Jian Guo Xiong Di is an independent curator, and in his presentation (in Chinese, from PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11) he covers the well-received “30 days of bookstore closings” project he produced last year. Why 30 days? Jian Guo explains that he would like to use this art performance to let people realize that these days so many bookstores are disappearing. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is our flyer for tomorrow night's PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 -- it was designed by Luis Mendo, from a photo by Michael Holmes.

Photos from PKN Sacramento Vol. 19

Today we have another gallery from the exciting PKN Sacramento Vol. 19 event. PKN Sacramento organizer extraordinaire Claire Obenson had this to say about the evening: As always, Pecha Kucha Night was fantastic, probably the best we have had in years. [It] took place during Sacramento's first ever Architecture Festival. The event was sponsored by the AIA and the theme for the evening was "Sacramento Residential Architecture". The outdoor event began with some techno/hip-hop tunes by our DJ, Will Rodriguez (who also happens to be Creative Director for Sacramento Fashion Week). Photographer Sonia Hidalgo, proved to be a natural when she brought the audience to life with her jokes as she introduced each of the presenters. There were 7 presenters, all of them architects. It began with Poet Shawn Pitard who eloquently presented for Joel Swift. Next, we had the fantastic Kiel Schmidt, Fresno's PK Night City Organizer. He was followed by the lovely husband and wife team of Pam Whitehead and Paul of Sage Architecture. Then Maria Ogrydziak (AIA Central Valley President) showed her sophisticated houses. Virtual Design Experts Laura and Justin Wood brought down the house with their astonishingly creative works and finally, Design Principal of Dreyfuss and Blackford Architects -- AIA Central Valley's 2013 Firm of the Year -- Jason Silva closed the show with a really cool residential project. The evening ended with a Meet and Greet held in the offices of The HLA Group, a Landscape Architecture Firm inside  the adjacent building. Overall, it was stupendous!

City Focus: Kalispell

This weeks city focus is on Kalispell, Montana, the gorgeous valley with a secret key to Glacier National Park. Rich with Native American influence, Kalispell is directly translated in Salish to “flat land above the lake.” Kalispell is the home to beautiful wildlife, trails, and mountain ranges, all interwoven by strikingly blue lakes nestled between. The vast space of Kalispell is reflected among the open minds that are coming to speak at PechaKucha Night Kalispell Vol. 5. Hope to see you there!
