Raglan held its second PechaKucha Night just last week, and here's organizer Rodger Gallagher with a report on the night that was: Thursday night’s PechaKucha Night Vol. 2 at the Raglan Old School Arts Centre in Stewart Street hit new heights both literally and metaphorically. Brigid Allan showed and amazing set of images from the Milford Sound area, but these weren’t the standard tourist shots. Instead the photos were taken on mountain climbs she had down in the area. The audience appreciated the variety and high quality of all the presentations. Robyn Gallagher’s talk on interestingness couldn’t help but raise interest as she talked about Flickr’s interestingness algorithm. And of course the homemade kai during the beer break was also appreciated. Rodger plans to have two more PechaKucha Nights later this year, and is already on the lookout for presenters -- do get in touch through the Raglan city page if you'd like to present or if you know someone who would. Below, the list of presenters from Vol. 2, as well as a few photos -- there's more to see in this Flickr photoset. Nelson Lebo III – Thinking like a swale Karma Barnes – Earth circle art. Fine Art, Multi-Media, Textiles and Installation Artist Clare Wimmer – Wood Firing. Abode Pottery, Waitetuna Robyn Gallagher – Interestingness Brigid Allan – My Milford Sound John and Julia – Raglan Ramblers Virginia Gallagher – Raglan 1910.

However, in "Textile-Reinforced Concrete: Material of the Future" from PKN Maastricht Vol. 20, Kevin Pidun of Lehrstuhl für Plastik shows us that textile-reinforced concrete opens a new universe of surprising uses and forms for this gray material.

"One of the challenges was they would use a southern indigenous design on them it isn't reflecting anything local."

John Ennis/ARCADIA: THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY OF CONSTRUCTION   'Arcadia' refers to a vision of environment in harmony with nature. The Ancient Greek province from which the term derives was associated with natural splendour and harmony inhabited by those without the pride and avarice that corrupted other regions. The harmony we seek in our individual lives is deeply dependent on the built environment in which we live as a community which is in turn influenced by architects and designers as they grapple with our pressing need to walk more lightly on the earth. Journeys in Design Scotland presents Arcadia: the Circular Economy of Construction, an exhibition series examining how we recycle our built environment. Arcadia opens 8 June in the Olympia Shopping Arcade Kirkcaldy, part of the former Abbottshall Linen Works repurposed in pursuit of emerging design talent; it explores how this town and others in Scotland repurposes former Linen Buildings.
