Earthships. Cosa significa vivere "off the grid". Nello specifico, presentazione di "Earthships" come una soluzione per affrontare l'attuale crisi ambientale ed economica. Le earthship sono una tipologia di case solari passive, con sistemi di riscaldamento e raffrescamento a energia zero, indipendenti dal punto di vista dell'approvvigionamento idrico ed energetico; costruite con materiali e tecniche di costruzione speciali (terra, argilla, paglia legno e soprattutto pneumatici riempiti di terra per i muri portanti e bottiglie o lattine per i muri non portanti) sono strutture ecosostenibili, con una ridotta impronta ambientale, pensate per soddisfare le esigenze delle case normali e talvolta sono anche più sicure e più comode. Patrick è il primo promotore earthships in Italia, prevede realizzarne un esempio nella provincia di Brescia e una per Expo2015 a Milano.

Un Gioco da Ragazzi, Anzi da Bimbi!

Nicola Vitale: architetto, racconta la sua esperienza di progettazione partecipata e autocostruzione di un edificio in scala per dei bimbi di 3-5 anni, rivelatosi un gioco preso con molta serietà e passione, e dai risultati sorprendenti.
7 case in terra cruda realmente costruite dai bimbi delle materne, 7 edifici di piccole dimensioni per il gioco, per nascondersi, per stare al fresco, per inzaccherarsi col fango, per vincere i tabù del non sporcarsi e per dimostrare che anche i piccoli ci sanno fare.

Progetto per le aree dismesse a sud di Brescia (ex Magazzini Generali, Pietra curva e Piccola Velocità), con il quale si provvede al recupero dell’esistente, alla creazione della Green-Belt, ad instaurare un rapporto città-territorio e a proporre nuove centralità per la collettività. Tutto ciò attraverso la valorizzazione del patrimonio architettonico e paesistico di Brescia.

Installazione realizzata in occasione della 4# edizione del Festival MZOO 2012 al Castello di Brescia. Dalle dimensioni monumentali, la sua caratteristica modulare nasce dall’idea di utilizzare il semplice ponteggio da costruzione, in lucido acciaio zincato, ripetendolo nell’assemblaggio verticale e orizzontale.
Il risultato è un monumento effimero post-contemporaneo, dove gangli metallici disegnano forme inusuali ora innalzate come mura ora articolate in esili silhouette.
L'opera ha avuto un buon riscontro mediatico, pubblicata su Archdaily, Art Tribune, Spazi (allegato Giornale di Brescia), e nel tempo incluso in tesi di laurea, blog etc.
Recentemente invitato a partecipare a un prestigioso premio di architettura in Inghilterra, WAN Awards, nella categoria Temporary Spaces.

Just 4 weeks after the events of 3/11 in Japan, the worldwide PechaKucha community came together to "Inspire Japan." Over $85,000 was raised for Architecture for Humanity and ArchiAid during a non-stop 24-hour PechaKucha event that circled the globe. The process of re-growth is ongoing, and presentations will continue to be added as we continue to inspire.
117 PechaKucha Night cities came together to raise money for reconstruction in Haiti on the 20th of February, 2010, just 4 weeks after the earthquake. Raising $79,000 for Architecture for Humanity, the money has helped build a school, which opened in November of 2011.
ArchiAid was formed soon after the devastating events of 3/11 in Japan. Many of Japan's leading architects joined forces with students of architecture to help design and rebuild some of the hardest hit coastal areas.
Architecture for Humanity is a 501(c)3 non-profit, that has been building a better future through the power of design for the past 15 years. We provide architecture, planning and project management services including construction management and post-occupancy analysis, and facilitate community engagement throughout each project. At the core of our mission, we believe everyone deserves access to the benefits of good design.

"We wanted every design decision that we made to be affordable, made locally, and something that could teach a skill."In Community Participation and Architecture, from PechaKucha Night New Orleans, Vol. 17, architect Mary Gilmore, shares her master’s thesis on Community Participation and Architecture. Her belief is that if people participated in the design and construction of a building, not only will they become stake holders in the process, but also learn something. To put her thesis into practice, Mary moved to India and then later to Mali, West Africa with the Peace Corps. Now as a practicing architect here in the states, she is has rediscovered the notion of community participation and architecture.

In MOTION + eMOTION: The Aesthetics of Movement in Architecture from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 10, Negar Kalantar explores the concept of transformability as a novel architectural design tool. In her work, motion itself is the design intention. Her creations take advantage of both the perceptual and functional qualities that movement can offer.
British Brutalist Architecture
"We've come so far in our taste and appreciation for these buildings that you can buy models of them." In British Brutalist Architecture from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 15, Jon Wright shares his love of Brutalist Architecture and in particular his love of the examples of this severe form of art in Britain. Jon's PechaKucha helps to get rid of a few pervasive myths about Brutalism. He also shows you what buildings we've lost (he would describe this as a disaster!), and how we saved the ones we do have with the meta-narrative being the cyclical nature of popular architectural taste and public opinion, how that is formed and how it manifests itself in popular culture.
