What is the Original Concept? 郭胜荣 - 概念的最初是什么?

BY 郭胜荣 GUO SHENGRONG
@ VOL 22 ON OCT 18, 2014

“设计他也讲求天时地利人和” 首先他通过探讨“设计概念的初衷?”, 结合他们之前得过红点奖的作品,设计的起初是在研究老人起居时发现的问题而不是单纯为了设计,等一系列设计案例中的小故事,阐述他认为设计有诸多因素,各 种因素在不同时期、不同环境下对设计的成功与否起到决定性作用,比如时间因素、技术因素、流程因素、经济因素、还有情感因素等,以及产生的设计点,以及不 同项目所涉及的方法、过程都不尽相同。

“It requires right place and right time to design too”.

First of all, he started with a question “What is the original intention of a design concept?”, and analyzed their design which won the Red Dot Prize before. The original intention of the design was not merely for design, but to solve a problem for elderly people when they were doing research on their living condition. By sharing these stories and cases of design, he elaborated his opinions that design was affected by numerous factors that could be decisive to its success or failure in different places and different times, such as time, technical, procedure, economic and emotion factors etc. All the factors affect the design points, different methods for different projects and procedures.

Liu Hsiang Yi (Red Bean) Live More, Fear Less

BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SHENZHEN
@ VOL 36 ON APR 21, 2018

这其中最让我动容的,除了关于设计、关于建筑、关于工作的经历,还有那些将细小乐趣变成工作的执着,那些与家人难舍难分的情感与回忆。

Apart from the design, the architecture, the experience of work, the most touching thing is the feeling and memories between her and her family.

2000 Stories

This is not the 2000th post on the blog, but the post that has that honnor did get posted earlier today, and it's another milestone we can add to the list of big numbers we've been hitting lately (PechaKucha's 9th anniversary, 500 cities, 90 PechaKucha Nights in Tokyo). That means that we've had the pleasure of sharing a great deal of PechaKucha-related stories here, and we have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

The Stories of Rocks

Geologist Patrick Johnstone's job rocks! I know, I know, these jokes take such a mineral amount of effort -- I couldn't resist. In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Stories of Rocks" (from PKN New Westminster, Vol. 2), we find that, through studying trace fossils, Johnstone can infer the behavior and the environments of countless ancient species. Using tools and evidence developed by scientists over many years, he can explore the narrative of the rock that he is studying.

Vintage furniture, chandleirs, and a crazy cat pillow - thank you Coco for letting us invade the coolest living room in Vientiane!

Presentations spanned personal essays and life-shaping experiences, a culmination of 15 years of portrait photography, a spoken word performance, coffee as a means of communication, agriculture and mapping, a theatrical journey, and asking ourselves if we have a book in us. Many thanks to the Vientiane community for coming down and supporting our 9 fantastic speakers - along with our supporters Coco & Co Cafe, TOH LAO Coworking Space & Services, and of course our wonderful Vol. 2 poster designer Vilakone Phachanthavong!
