A Modernist Graphic Designer on Kawaii, Utopian Plans for Moscow, and Last Night in Tokyo

Presentations The cute -- kawaii -- culture that was perfected in Japan has now proliferated on a global scale. Why? This modernist graphic designer (aka Craig Yamashita) laments the reasons (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92). Artyom Ukropov is an architect at Megabudka Bureau, and in this presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 18) he shares his utopian plans -- all based on real data and statistics -- on how to solve all of the problems of modern Russia. His solution involves moving all of the population to the territory that surrounds the Moscow region. Posters Today's new crop of posters on our Tumblr blog includes PKN Tallinn Vol. 4 (which happens tomorrow night), PKN Bangor Vol. 5 (also happening tomorrow night), PKN Plzen Vol. 1 (happening tonight), and PKN Xalapa Vol. 10 (happening tonight, and pictured above).  Photos The photos we have to share today are all pictured above, and were taken last night at PKN Tokyo Vol. 92 by our resident photographer, Michael Holmes. These are traditional shots we always take and include (from top) the big group shot, the presenters group shot, and the "PechaKucha Mix" participants.  Calendar On the final day of May, you'll be able to attend the following events: PKN Plzen Vol. 1, PKN Seattle Vol. 36, PKN Ulladulla Vol. 3, and PKN Xalapa Vol. 10.
