Architecture and the Poo Story
BY JESSICA BLACK
“By fundamentals, I’m talking about plumbing; making sure people can go to the toilet and wash themselves safely… many people around the world and around our nation do not have access to running water or toilets for example. This lack of access has a direct affect on people’s health and therefor their lifespans. ”

New Possibilities for Taitung
BY 張基義CHI YI CHANG
@ VOL 27
ON DEC 19, 2015
Mr. Chang believes Taitung aboriginals are an important asset to Taiwan, and his aboriginal friends have taught him to understand contentment, to share and care for the land and nature. He also believes that what Taitung really needs are its small buildings and its magnificent landscape, not grand architecture. He shared the success of Chishang rice, the international tourist Balloon Fiesta, the International Surfing Open and the international triathlon events and other activities in recent years. Since then, creative ideas have changed the destiny of the non-industrial areas of Taiwan's remote towns, and has further promoted the growth of new industries and employment. In the end, he talked about the transformation of the old train station and the surroundings of the railway, as well as the organization of design exhibitions and other activities, looking forward to more new possibilities for the city of Taitung.

As a follow-up to our previous post on Budapest's recent and upcoming PKNs, organizer Attila Bujdoso sends us the following on one of the stand-out presentations from that city's Vol. 16. It featured Eszter Pasztor talking about her "Bodvalenke - Fresco Village" project. This very special project focuses on one of Hungary's most deprived ghetto villages. Bódvalenke is a remote, small village in North-Eastern Hungary. The village -- which has high unemployment rate and is harmed by social segregation -- is inhabited by many gypsies. Led by a Miskolc painter, János Horváth, gypsy painters will decorate the walls of the houses of the village with murals. The murals will present the life, legends, dreams, sorrows and desires of the Gypsy. In the first phase they have already painted the walls of some 15-17 houses. Thus they create a communal art work and wish to open up this tiny remote village for tourists. Tourism and attention would hopefully help turn this village and could bring work opportunities and a better life circumstances to the villagers. You can see a few photos of Pasztor presenting here, and also learn more at this website for the project in question.

Documenting Sunken Ship Sites
"I do exploration and documentation of shipwrecks and sunken aircrafts"In Documenting Sunken Ship Sites from Jackson, MS, Vol. 7 Kelly Gleason, PHD, an underwater archaeologist for NOAA in Honolulu, HI, describes how artefacts become historical record which in turn can create connection with our stories and civilisation as a whole. One shipwreck discovery, the Two Brothers, is significant because it tells more of the story that inspired the novel, Moby Dick.

Copper Harbor, Michigan
"I don't know if there is a word to describe a peninsula that's part of another peninsula, maybe "super-peninsula." They can use that if they want." In this hilarious, yet introspective look on a remote and serene corner on the world called Copper Harbour, Michigan, freelance writer John Donavan shares his love for its 75 quirky residents, its single drag strip, its dozen places to stay, and half as many places to eat, its few quiet souvenir shops, its art studio, its laundromat, its lonely but loved book store, and its complete lack of cell-phone reception. Surrounded by wilderness, wonder, and solitude, Donavan shares getting lost in the natural beauty, forgetting that the noise, and the hurry, and the craziness of world even exists, adding "it's kinda like my church."(From PechaKucha Des Moines Vol. 21.)
