Ideas for Christchurch

Also coming to us from Christchurch today (see our previous post about the event postponement), organizer Vanessa Coxhead fills us in on an intriguing new project called "Ideas for Christchurch," that looks to get young architecture students working together on ideas for rebuilding Christchurch. Below, the details of the project. This is a call for ideas. Christchurch's recent 7.1 magnitude earthquake has severely damaged much of the built fabric of the city, in particular historic buildings in the centre. Outlying suburbs have been hard hit and vast numbers of homes will need to be reconsidered. Currently teams are working to assess, and to salvage what is possible of the city's buildings. Within a few weeks large-scale rebuilding will begin. This call for ideas comes from a group of young architectural graduates with an interest in engaging members of the public in dialogue around building decisions that affect them. The events in Christchurch have given their concerns a direct and immediate weight: over the coming months, hugely significant, city-defining architectural and planning decisions are going to have to be made. We implore the public at large, as well as architecture students and practicing architects, to become involved in a positive and productive discussion over the nature of these decisions and the kinds of rebuilding they would like to see take place. We want to see your ideas providing a framework to give shape to what could, should, or might be. Choose your strategy, construct an argument, share a notion, indulge in joyful play, fight against or reach towards. Scale is open: form a strategic vision for the entire city; reconsider a hard hit suburb; preserve a local dairy. Salvage heritage and character, design temporary infills, sustainable developments, urban parks/reserves, inner-city living, a new typology of housing, a city of skyscrapers, a city of pickles… whatever you find interesting. We want ideas, ideas to stimulate interest and establish discussion to achieve the best for Christchurch. Design, plan, write, draw, paint, model, dream... just share what you value and deliver it in an A3 digital format to Submit as often as you want, as a group or as an individual; identify yourself or remain anonymous. We see this as urgent. Submissions are open from Wed 15th to Sat 25th September 5pm. Selected works will be uploaded to online discussion forums, presented to the media, and publicly exhibited. For submission requirements, further information, queries, and updates please email the above or visit:

Realizing Good Ideas

"It's not enough to have a good idea. To realize that good idea is very difficult, and that's what I work hard to do". In Realizing Good Ideas from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 14, Chris Siano shares how he uses digital design and fabricatio to make things better, whether it is a public art installation, a student sculpture project, a building or a neighborhood. For the past twelve years he has served as an Instructional Support Technician in the University at Buffalo Department of Art. In 2005 he formed The Foundry Group Inc. - a company specializing in art and architectural fabrication. And in 2012, in partnership with his brother Matthew, he formed HES Properties - a real estate development company focusing on development of mixed-use properties on Buffalo's West Side. All of these endevours are conduits for great ideas in his community to come to fruition.

TomTod Ideas

"Middle schoolers are not just our future. They have the ability to investigate real change, starting now." In TomTod Ideas from PechaKucha Night Akron Vol.3, Joel Daniel Harris shares on TomTod Ideas which gives middle schoolers a serious avenue to explore creativity. Harris is the founder and Executive Dreamer of TomTod Ideas, an innovation incubator for middle school students, centered on launching students’ dreams for the common good. Rarely does anyone expect much of anything from a middle schooler. The fact is, though, that early adolescence, that liminal space in which middle schoolers reside, is a place of beauty, opportunity and imagination. Get ready to re-consider what we think "kids" are capable of.

Estudiantes con ideas frescas

Allem Samlani e Ian Davis, estudiantes de Publicidad de Duoc UC Viña del Mar resultaron ganadores del concurso para el desarrollo de la imagen del Vol.2 de Pecha Kucha Night Quilpué. Los estudiantes participaron junto a otras más de 20 duplas creativas. La pieza ganadora bajo el concepto de "Fresh ideas" pone su acento en la relación del ser humano con una mente abierta, nueva, renovada, en que la frescura de esa actitud se refleja en una lechuga hidropónica. Es una propuesta disruptiva, que sin duda refleja el espíritu del próximo evento del 6 de julio. Felicitamos a estos estudiantes creativos, a todos quienes participaron, profesores de Publicidad y su Director de Carrera Sr. Marco Puchi por apoyar esta iniciativa y dar espacio a los estudiantes a sumarse a una iniciativa global por ciudades más innovadoras y encantadoras a sus habitantes.   


Building community... one PechaKucha Night at a time

In a rugged town where passersby only capture franchise offerings on the highway strip, a thoughtful community of thinkers, builders, makers, creators and dreamers reside. They come together every four months to share, listen, question and celebrate at PechaKucha Nights at the local performing arts theatre. Volunteers run the cash bar, complimentary snacks are provided, the lights are dimmed and a DJ sets the mood. We meet the inspirational, courageous, determined and soulful folks who open their hearts and minds. If this is connects with you, please join us for PechaKucha #3.
