Freestyle + Beatbox

BY CARLOS AGUIRRE
@ VOL 62 ON MAY 21, 2018

Carlos Aguirre, a.k.a. Emcee Infinite, freestyles and beatboxes to 20 images he's seeing for the first time on stage. During the break, we had the audience select and draw images that represent "what San Francisco means to me." The crowd then selected ten images and ten sketches, order them, and we turned that into Emcee Infinite's PechaKucha Night presentation! Our technical difficulties for this one made the total presentation closer to 10 minutes as opposed to 6:40 but it was worth it!

Carlos Aquire, a.k.a. Emcee Infinite, has been performing in the Bay Area and beyond for over 13 years. He is part of the musical group Felonious where he doubles as emcee/beatboxer. He has shared the stage with Jam Master Jay, LL Cool J, De La Soul, Black Eyed Peas, The Roots, Eryka Badu, Mary J. Blige and Macy Gray among others.

Explore Yourself in San Francisco

BY 鄭凱華KAI HUA CHENG
@ VOL 27 ON DEC 19, 2015

Ms. Cheng thinks San Francisco is an excellent place to learn the cuisine of every country. She used restaurants, markets, second-hand supermarkets, and second-hand bookstores to introduce different cultures, as well as the popular Blue Bottle coffee shop to show the tolerance for different possibilities. Ms. Chen also shared different landscape attractions, including the beautiful town 'Sausalito' across from San Francisco bridge and the AT & T Stadium. She has observed that Americans value family life and love to exercise. She thinks the process of exploring a city is actually to explore yourself, and each city will change you, if you let it.

鄭凱華認為舊金山是很適合學習各國料理的城市,並以餐廳、市集、二手超市、新舊二手書店介紹不同文化,以及受歡迎的Blue Bottle咖啡店等,包容著不同的可能性。並分享不同景點的風景,包括舊金山大橋對岸的美麗小鎮Sausalito、AT&T球場,並觀察到美國人注重家庭生活與喜愛運動,而感想是探索城市的過程是探索自己,不要對自己設限,每個城市都能帶給你改變。

A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space

BY JOANNA GILLESPIE
@ 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.

Failure

This being our anniversary week -- PechaKucha is 10 years old! -- our "Presentations of the Day" will feature some of the most popular presentations we've had on the site. How could a man witness the fatal failure of a bridge in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, which killed 114 people, designed by his own firm, and then become one of the founders of the US Green Building Council, and have a profound impact on how our buildings impact the entire planet? The theme for this presentation is "failure." In April 2009, this was a theme everyone was confronting in one way or another. Bob Berkebile came to this event fully aware of how failures -- some his own, others he merely witnessed -- have the potential to shape lives for the better. During the course of his 20 slides, he expresses in a very uniquely personal way the mindset and imagination necessary to see failures as the opportunities for insight that they can be.

SixtyNine | Seventy Project

PechaKucha San Francisco organizer Paul Jamtgaard is helping to promote a design competition in Salt Lake City, and he's got all the details right here: Who doesn't love zip lines? We've proposed a rooftop PechaKucha surrounded by the Salt Lake City downtown skyline with millions of stars above!  Other interventions: new arts and performance spaces and parking-structure-rooftop sustainable farming in the area are all connected by a network of zip lines making everyone feel like a Superman/woman. For more details on this competition, check out the SixtyNine | Seventy Project. (photo credit: Trevor Muhler Photography)

Top 5 Presentations Constructed of Glass, Steel, Concrete

Whether it be built of glass, poured-in-place concrete, or steel I-beams, the big bad whole may huff and puff, but he'll never blow these structures down. These are the top 5 PechaKucha 20x20 presentations related to buildings, construction, and architecture.  First, we hear from Gary Cheng, whose tiny Hong Kong apartment has innumerable transmutations. (Transformer Apartment) Then we listen to Bob Berkebile's experiences with failure, and how it drove him to improve upon the architectural status quo. (Failure) Filipe Balestra discusses the importance of placement when constructing public works projects in urban villages. (Acupuncture Architecture, Urban Villages) Emma Brooke then takes us on a tour through the harsh, unfeeling (yet somehow beautiful) world of brutalist architecture. (Brutalism) And as a bit of a crossover with last week's top 5 of the animal kingdom, Roland Hagenberg describes the construction of a house meant for humans and a feathered friend. (Storkhouse)

Jargon for the Rest of Us

Jason's been a waiter, an art dealer, a stand-up comic, and is currently trying his hand at being a dad.
