West of Japan, East of Europe

@ VOL 146 ON APR 26, 2017

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.

Sometimes it is hard to stay on the path that life has put in front of you; Zana  Faulkner knows this better than most. From horseback riding to martial arts to competative road racing to mountian biking, Zana's journey has been a long and winding one, and not always pleasant. But if you come to a fork in the road, or if the path becomes rocky, or if the upcoming route remains hidden behind a bend, Zana's story stresses the importance of staying on the trail and completing the journey.

Itakura Core House

The Great Tohoku Earthquake struck the north-eastern coast of Japan just two years ago, and brought with it tsunamis that took lives and destroyed countless homes along the coastline. To this day, there are an estimated 315,000 people living in temporary housing as a result of natural and man-made disasters that occured after the quake. As this is the two-year anniversary of this catastrophic event, we're spending the entire week highlighting presentations from the PechaKucha x ArchiAid Channel.  In his presentation -- from the special PechaKucha x ArchiAid fundraiser -- Yoshiharu Tsukamoto (of Japanese architecture firm Atelier Bow-Wow) speaks of his efforts to build small, easily-expanded houses using the "Itakura Method" of construction to not only revitalize life on the Tohoku coastline, but to stimulate the surrounding forestry industry. Easy assembly, disassembly, and transport are among the additional benefits of the Itakura technique. The original, Japanese version of this presentation (from Tokyo Desiger's Week) can be found here. To contribute to Tohoku's reconstruction efforts, you can donate to ArchiAid's "Core House" project here.

Love an Old House

"Nothing is more painful to me than the sight of an abandoned old house..." David Dominé believes that old houses are like old people - if you listen to them, they'll have a story to tell. David moved to Louisville in 1993, where he was immediately taken by the abundance of vibrant, classical architecture. He began writing books about old houses in the neighborhood, bringing to the forefront their colorful and interesting pasts, and in "Love an Old House" from PKN Louisville Vol. 11, you'll hear a few of those stories.

Shop Houses

Do we really want to live in cities full of skyrises? Urban planner Tay Pruecksamars attempts to summarize the research and work he has done in the past year. In particular he focuses on shop houses, which are generally despised by architects and urban designers, but which can serve multiple purposes, and use their space much more efficiently than many other types of buildings. In "Shop Houses" from PKN Bangkok Vol. 6, he proposes solutions to problems facing modern urban designers, and takes a closer look at the solutions shop houses can provide.

"Cinema can make sense of history, distort memories, and shape time."In A New Picutre House from Huddersfield, Vol. 11, John Harrison from Studio Dekka talks about the creation of Dewsbury's New Picture House. In the spirit of the James Joyce's first Cinema, Volta, established in 1909 in Dublin, where showing obscure Italian arthouse films was pushing the envelope of what cinema could mean, Harrison and 15 cohorts took it upon themselves to open a new picture house where they too would push the expectations of film. In this unique presentation, he shares his story, and the stories of others who share his vision. Get some popcorn!

The Chicago House Sound

"The kick drum went through my chest, the bass line came up through the floor, the high hats and cymbals came fizzing from above ... when the smoke machine cleared, there were rich people, poor people, black, white, straight, gay ...and I thought, 'these are my people now, this is my music'."In The Chicago House Sound from PechaKucha Night Chicago Vol. 36, IDEO's Neil Stevenson went on a quest to find the roots of House Music that, during its evolution from New York to Chicago and then in its momentum across Europe, he fell in love with. Here he shares that compelling quest and his love for Chicago House, its evolution, and the legacy of Frankie Knuckles.
