Paths Connecting Cities


Advocate at Walk Auckland Andy Smith speaks of the tragic history of the Auckland Harbor Bridge — once planned to include bike and foot paths, but built as a four-lane automobile bridge — and the numerous campaigns that were launched by cyclist and walker groups to implement a connecting path. Pressure lead to an innovative solution: a tube/tunnel suspended from the clip-on just under the bridge, away from traffic, and offering majestic views of the city.

Bridges of Europe

@ VOL 8 ON DEC 03, 2013

On the first of January 2002 new banknotes were introduced in Europe. In addition to windows and gateways, these seven banknotes also depict several bridges. Each bridge has an individual appearance, all of which can be recognised as having originated throughout certain periods in European cultural history.

Designed by Robert Kalina, the bridges are meant to illustrate the tight collaboration and communication between Europe and the rest of the world in general, but more importantly, amongst the European countries in particular.

However, the bridges portrayed in the banknotes are fictional.

They have been designed to prevent one single member state from having a bridge on their banknote opposed to other states not having any depicted in theirs. In other words, “member state neutral” banknotes.

Now wouldn’t it be amazing if these fictional bridges suddenly turn out to actually exist in real life?

PKN Maastricht Vol. 2

The city of Maastricht recently hosted its second PechaKucha Night, again with a terrific lineup of presenters -- you can view streaming video of all the presentations here. Organizer Martijn Kagenaar reports. After the overwhelming success of PKN’s January debut in Maastricht, our audience didn’t have to wait long for a new PKN. March 20th, about 250 visitors saw speakers from six nations: Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, USA, and even some from the Netherlands. In AINSI, 1 kilometer from Belgium and 20 kilometers from Germany, an international crowd got together for 12 presentations. They saw and heard about life in the roof gutter, singing bridges, and a journey to the moon. Maastricht’s mayor was delighted, as was the well known writer of "The Creative City," Charles Landry. He was our very special guest, hosted by Mrs. Odile Wolfs, cultural delegate at the Province of Limburg. The day after, we were her guests in a masterclass at TEFAF, the world’s leading Art Fair in Maastricht. Charles inspired his Maastricht students for one day to think about crossing borders in order to become a real creative region. Maastricht is a candidate to be Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018. Another fun part of PKN Maastricht is the PechaKitchen, which Martijn describes as the "speakers-only after party: a cooking workshop, a few weeks after the event. There we can look back on the presentations, look forward, and make further plans to co-operate with each other." Below, photos from the event -- see more in this Flickr photoset. PKN Maastricht Vol. 3 will take place June 20.

Marking the Tokyo Cityscape, Being Kind to Your Elders, and Checking in on Guimaraes

Presentations Here's how Nick Bruscia describes his presentation, "Marking the City," from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 92:An impromptu and ad-libbed Tokyo fiction deriving meaning from a mundane observation -- street annotations and mysterious tags, both written and physically placed. It is imagined that these tags embed another layer of information into the city by casting invisible perimeters within which encoded experiences are left behind and felt by others through ubiquitous mobile / augmented-reality devices. Tokyo is remapped through visual and physical sensations that overlap, fade away, and are activated by the weather or proximity, and offer an ephemerality akin to Tokyo's ever changing urban fabric.Our second presentation of the day is quite a different one. "Be kind to your elders" is a phrase we hear time and time again, and in "Building Bridges" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Roseli Bassi talks about a project that has the goal of encouraging better interaction between young people and the elderly. Posters The new posters on our Tumblr blog today are for PKN Guimaraes Vol. 2, PKN Bucharest Vol. 9, PKN Moncton Vol. 5 (which happens tomorrow night), and PKN Toronto Vol. 16 (pictured above).  Photos and videos Today we take some time to share plenty of Guimaraes content, for the city's recent Vol. 2. As we just mentioned, the poster for the event was added to our Tumblr blog, and you'll also find two photo galleries, one with photos taken by Joao Octavio Peixoto (two of them are pictured above), and one by Luis Coelho and Joao Abreu [Facebook]. We already shared with you the promo video for the event (and we loved it so much we played it last week's PKN here in Tokyo), as well as the teaser, but here's also an intro for the presenters. httpv:// And here's a lovely outdoor billboard ad for the event: Links A couple of event reports from around the web. "Chit-chatting about Japan" (on the recent D&AD "Japan" themed one-off PechaKucha event in London) [Haikugirl's Japan]"PechaKucha Night Dubai: The 11th Edition - A Convention of Creative Minds" [Khaleejesque]Calendar First, a reminder that tonight (June 6) you can catch the following events: PKN Coquitlam Vol. 7, PKN Bielefeld Vol. 10, PKN Genoa Vol. 2, PKN Aarhus Vol. 13, and PKN Edmonton Vol. 13.

Hidden Spaces in Toronto, The Humble Mason Jar, and a Video from Zelezny Brod

Presentations Kathy Toth is an art photographer, and in her presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17) she shares a recent photography project about hidden spaces in the city where bridges, drains, and drainage channels become art galleries for graffiti, skate parks for teens. These are all sorts of wonderful things to a small group of people who make creative uses of spaces that are hidden from the common eye. Herein (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 3) lies the unofficial and unauthorized history of the mason jar, produced by Craig Langlois in the form of drawings. Posters Today on the Tumblr blog we feature the flyer image for this month's PKN Tokyo Vol. 96, which is better known as our big Tokyo Designers Week edition. Happening on October 31 at the TDW grounds (Meiji-Jingu Gaien) in a venue that can hold up to 1200, it will be one of the bigger PKNs we've had in Tokyo. You'll find more details on our event page and on our Facebook event page, and every day we are highlighting presenters on our PechaKucha Tokyo page on Facebook.  httpv:// Videos Today we share a short video that offers up a look at Zelezny Brod's recent first PKN, and with PKN Orlando Vol. 7 just around the corner (October 26), here's a video interview with that city's organizer, Eddie Selover. Calendar Here are the five events on the schedule for tonight (October 18): PKN Townsville Vol. 1, PKN Edinburgh Vol. 20, PKN Leeds Vol. 14, PKN Wakefield Vol. 7, PKN Panama Vol. 11, and PKN Edmonton Vol. 14. Tomorrow we have the following three events, two of them in Japan: PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 14, PKN Adelaide Vol. 4, and PKN Hakata Vol. 4.

Stem Cell Art, Bridging Community and Students Through Art, and the Story Behind a Poster

Presentations Irwin Adam is a chemical engineer, but all of his friends are designers. As you'll see in his presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 10), after a crazy journey through Siberia, he moved to Toronto from Montreal. Inspired by his designer friends, he's turning 2D stem cells into 3D "art." In his presentation (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10), Bernardo Diaz describes the program he developed to connect his students with some of the city's community centers. Posters Instead of adding a new poster to the Tumblr blog today, we share the story behind the making of Springfield, MO's poster for its upcoming Vol. 8, produced by organizer Pam Rubert.Since we are hosting this event at our studio on our lonely industrial street, I drew our streetscape for the poster. When the full moon rises over our street, I sometimes think that my husband's aluminum sculpture is reaching for the moon. When I look out of my office window, I can sometimes see a family of groundhogs that have made a home underground. Every day they are throwing more dirt and rocks out of the hole, so the tunnels must be getting bigger and more complex. I imagined PechaKucha Night Vol. 8 as sort of an underground network of a variety of people and creatures.Below, the groundhogs in question: Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for the recent PKN Norrkoping Vol. 20, held earlier this month. Please note that the dates for Vol. 21 and Vol. 22 have already been announced, and are set for November 6 and December 4 respectively. Calendar We kick off the weekend with these events tonight (October 26): PKN Orlando Vol. 7, PKN Bern Vol. 19, PKN Waterville Vol. 9, PKN Koszalin Vol. 10, PKN Wellington Vol. 17, PKN Cagliari Vol. 4, and PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 2. On Saturday, you'll find PKN Lodz Vol. 9.

The Streets Belong to Us

"We can take over the streets. We can have fun there because the city belongs to us." In "The Streets Belong to Us" from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, content creator Mateus Bagatini shines the spotlight on Brazilian street party culture, but not the carnival kind with which we're all familiar! Exhausted and bored with the exclusive and over-priced club scene, a new generation of partiers have decided to take the club to the street, hosting DJs and dancers under bridges, in the parks, or even in once-abandoned commercial spaces, bringing with them more people, cheap booze, the authorisation of the city, and well ... what looks like a damn good time. Not just simply focussed on cutting loose, the parties have taken on numerous forms, often with a social message and have successfully demonstrated being an agent of change for the betterment of cities. As a citizen-driven culture, at parties in Brazil's public spaces everyone is invited ...after all the city belongs to us!

Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border

"We hopes whoever becomes president builds more bridges instead of walls [because] we are sister cities, divided only by the river."In Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border from PKN Tokyo Vol 134, PechaKucha Night El Paso City Organizers (and acclaimed architects) William Helm and Edgar Lopez describe the symbiotic relationship of the sister cities of El Paso and Juarez. The residents of the two cities activate a third space of the US/Mexico border, called "Pass of the North"  which produces a rich milieu of creativity, art and culture. In this place which was historically known as "Paso del Norte" along the Spanish road from Mexico City to Santa Fe, the two cities have come together to use the PechaKucha conversation to bridge across the border. 20 x 20 x 2 cities = building bridges not walls.
