A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space

@ 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.

West of Japan, East of Europe

@ VOL 146 ON APR 26, 2017

Bruno Taut (4 May 1880 – 24 Dec 1938) was a prolific German architect who has written three influential book-length appreciations of Japanese culture and architecture. “West of Japan / East of Europe“, a collaboration between Architect Marcos Capitanio and photographer Dave Clough, is devoted to exhibiting the only existing project that Bruno Taut realized during his three-year stay in Japan, Hyuga Villa (Kyu Hyuga Bettei) in Atami, built in 1936. Both exhibition and exhibit hallmarks a sincere cross-cultural exchange achieved through the deep ponderings of spatial proportions, sentiments and materiality!
