New York: City on a Grid

@ VOL 7 ON DEC 04, 2015

Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”

Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!

Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

Let's Build a City

@ VOL 6 ON SEP 13, 2016

Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?

The Flying Grass Carpet

Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos of HUNK-design and Eddy Kaijser (ID Eddy) have a dream, and it's an inspired one: to see their "Flying Grass Carpet" project take flight and bring a touch of parklife to city centers around the world. Modeled after the idea of creating a giant Persian rug, the massive carpet measures up to 58m x 32 m -- it's adjustable, going down to 22m x 18m -- creating an instant field for anyone to enjoy as they would any park. The carpet is made of over 85 million pieces of artificial grass, using varied lengths and colors to create a satisfying texture. Bart, Nadine, and Eddy's goal is to have the carpet travel from city to city. So far, "The Flying Grass Carpet" has been spotted in the Netherlands (Rotterdam and Amsterdam) and Germany (Aachen). If you'd like to have it visit your city, you can find out how from the official project website. Bart and Nadine coordinate Pecha Kucha Night in Rotterdam, and presented the "Flying Grass Carpet" project at last week's inaugural PKN in Maastricht.

The Flying Grass Carpet in Budapest

PechaKucha Night in Budapest Vol. 12 was held back in May, and you may remember that at the time we mentioned that PKN Amsterdam organizers Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos' "Flying Grass Carpet" was going to make an appearance. Photos from the event have finally popped up, and above you can see an amazing photo that showcases not only the stunning venue (at the Museum of Applied Arts), but the carpet as well.

Vancouver's last PechaKucha Night (Vol. 12) was another sell-out -- of course -- and doubled as a special edition with the theme "Walk the Talk, Green Your City," in collaboration with the City of Vancouver and the University of British Columbia. You'll find a few photos from the event on Flickr user miketippett's photostream.

PechaKucha is Grand and Rapid in Grand Rapids

The latest edition of PechaKucha night in the rip-roarin' Michigan city of Grand Rapids (Vol. 6) came and went, and a quick recap of the night was recorded in The Rapidian. Here's a small tidbit from the article: Humorous and serious, honest and ultimately real, PKGR provides neutral ground, an environment where any one of us can share our passions, our stories or a little bit of ourselves. PKGR also gives the audience the opportunity to discover the unknown, rethink the familiar and to get lost in the story. Because when it really comes down to it, life is all about the stories. We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Check out the full article here.

Peeking Through Tall Grasses

 Susannah Lohr On her Pecha Kucha Poster Design:  "So I came up with the idea for the poster when I was thinking about visual metaphors for what happens at Pecha Kucha. Since it's an event where you're in a crowd and you're watching speakers, you're listening to presentations, it feels a bit like you're peeking through tall grasses. You can "come through the grass" and learn more about this interesting person who's speaking, you can go up to them after and talk to them about their work. Or you can simply enjoy the experience in a passive way, just through observation. Both are valuable and important ways, in my opinion, to attend the event. I'm currently working on a mini-comic that I'll be debuting at the St. Louis Small Press Expo. It's about three super-heroines saving a town from destructive supernatural cat demons. It takes place in a world heavily influenced by historical Japanese films and comics. " Learn more about this uber talented artist and illustrator:

Sparks: The Magic of the Grid

"The whole idea of being connected in some way, shape, or form, through this system that people set up, is so we can actually help each other do better things." In Sparks: The Magic of the Grid from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph Vol. 5, electrical engineer at Whirlpool Corporation, Alex Halbleib distills an explanation of the mechanics (and magic) and the ubiquitous grid that brings our homes energy every day and night. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, (that's pronounced "Loo-ih-vil", without the "S"!) Alex is currently working in the advanced engineering where he hopes to make the world's connection just a little bit stronger.
