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.

BY MARSHALL STAIR
@ VOL 20
ON AUG 18, 2016
Walkability is key in improving health, the local economy, and the environment. Unfortunately Knoxville’s zoning code prohibits mixed use, requires too much parking, and mandates large setbacks, all of which make Knoxville less walkable and transit friendly. In this presentation, Marshall Stair explores Knoxville and discusses what could be done to promote walkability in future developments.

Making of “Heaven Stood Still:” A Work in Progress
BY LARRY LOCKE
@ VOL 1
ON MAY 09, 2018
Larry Locke has been working on a new film for over seven years and it is not finished yet. The key parts are the subject- singer Willy DeVille and his life story and the people he has met in the process (like the late Ben E King, Peter Wolf from J Geils band, Marshall Crenshaw and many others). His story explains how the making of the movie has become its own story full of ups and downs spread across three continents with a deep connection to Connecticut.

PKN Austin Vol. 4
If the tweets were anything to go by, PechaKucha Night Vol. 4 in Austin was a get-there-early-or-miss-out kind of affair. PKN Austin organizer Carla Fraser gives us the lowdown on the event: We had 10 presenters, ranging from graphic design to music, skateboard activist, architecture, photography, film, and spray can graffiti. Photographer Sarah Wilson showed some work she had done working with the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. She photographed their prom -- a year end formal dance that is traditional in US high schools. The audience loved her work. It's very personal and moving. Miguel Rivera's presentation of his architectural work was breathtakingly beautiful. Musician John Pointer presented an idea of a new model for musicians to be financially successful without having to go through the typical recording label dance. In Austin, home of lots of musicians, people liked it. He is very smart and talented and had hand-drawn his slides because his laptop flew off the top of his car. A very brave graphic designer from Pentagram (DJ Stout) stood up and showed his failures. Some were hilarious. He is very good and has the confidence to show his bad work because he has done so much good work. We had over 250 people inside and had to turn away at least another 100 or more. There are fire marshall codes that cannot be broken. We are looking for a larger venue for the next one. The short film clip was great. For many people, this was their first PKN event to attend so that helped put things in perspective. Others had been to all the prior events. Feedback this morning has been very enthusiastic. We have had to turn people away at 3 of the 4 events. Our #3 was in a very large space but it brought its own challenges with it. We had someone drive from Houston who wants to start one up in that city. We have chatted on email so he came to see one in person. He was jazzed about it, asked lots of questions. We have had visitors from Phoenix and other locations who came to see one in hopes of starting one in their own cities. The really wonderful thing is how enthusiastic and excited the presenters are after the event. They get energized. The crowd feels it and people walk away glad to be part of the creative community. And, breaking down all the traditional silos -- mixing so many disciplines together is key to the fun here in Austin. It's work, yes, and at 11:30 last night I was tired. But the feedback this morning is so great! Photos are courtesy of Ben Rondeau.

WISP - Weird Illuminated Sky Paintings
We know drones kill and deliver packages, but who knew they could create art? WISP or Weird Illuminated Sky Paintings is a collaborative project by three creative technologists, Brent Marshall, Partick Dinnen and Dre Labre. In "WISP - Weird Illuminated Sky Paintings" from PKN Toronto Vol. 28, we hear that they want to capture the idea of whimsy or the first time you draw your name with a sparkler.
