A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space

@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"This is my 6-minute memoir. A mediation on impermanence."

In A Brief Memoir of Architecural Space from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, independent arts consultant and co-organizer of PechaKucha Buffalo, Joanna Gillespie, delivers a meditation on twenty of the fifty places she has lived since birth. From Victorian-era structures in Buffalo, NY and San Francisco, CA, to the wilds of the 1970's California coast, to modern and efficient rural Japan, to a Postmodern art utopia in Maine, and beyond, Gillespie recounts a particular memory from each space. Through all of the temporal landscapes we find ourselves in, Gillespie concludes, "We forge on, either clumsily or assuredly. We keep on keeping on." Even if we move fifty times.

During the presentation, Greg explain that year through the lens of a seven-year old (his age at the time) and how he came to understand the world in much more complicated terms, rather than black and white, good and bad, right and wrong. Many events that shaped Greg into the person he is today occurred during this year, including Darth Vader's defeat of the rebels, the constant appearing of the Ayatollah Khomeini on my television, JR Ewing's getting shot by someone, the death of John Lennon, and the death of my uncle, which his father was later found to be responsible for.

Adopting a Racing Dog, Moving to the Shakespeare Beat, and Pinteresting Finds

Presentations Another fantastic kids presentation from Derby (Vol. 5), this time with Freya talking about her dog Alfie, a retired racing greyhound. If this doesn't convince you that adopting a retired racing dog is a good idea, we don't know what will. Can you move to the Shakespeare beat? Ben Spiller will make sure that you do in his presentation (from PKN Derby Vol. 6), before introducing you to the Shakespeare workout. Some presentations see a person sharing their work, and some see the presenter sharing what inspires him or her. Here (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 3), Richard Britell does the latter, sharing finds from Pinterest. This presentation (in French, from PKN Lyon Vol. 4) is about Alles Gut, a graphic design studio founded by Antoine Eckart and Francis Josserand. The idea was born from the desire of putting together their skills and their vision of design combining esthetic and function. They act in the field of print (ID, posters, editing), web design, and illustration. And with these four presentations we hit a new milestone today, reaching 600 online presentations -- or make that two, since our city count has just hit 580. Events We announced it a couple of weeks ago, but here's a reminder that here in Tokyo, PechaKucha is teaming up with ArchiAid for a very special event next week (Thursday, November 22) at SuperDeluxe in Roppongi. This PechaKucha event will be jam-packed with an inspirational lineup of architects -- including SANAA and Atelier Bow-Wow -- who will present their ArchiAid-supported projects in Tohoku (northern Japan, the area most affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami), using the 20x20 format you know and love. You'll find more event details and the full lineup of presenters on our Facebook event page and Inspire Japan site. Participants will also contribute books to be auctioned during the break, to raise funds. You can also support ArchiAid initiatives through the PechaKucha website -- click on the big blue "A+" logo. Photos Tallinn had its Vol. 6 earlier this week, but here's a photo gallery [Flickr] from the city's Vol. 5, held back in September. You'll find the list of presenters on the official event page.  Calendar After a busy week, it's a relatively quiet weekend, with two events scheduled for tonight (Friday, November 16) -- PKN Aalen Vol. 12 and PKN Hamptons Vol. 2 -- and then PKN Johannesburg Vol. 8 happening on Saturday.

Do Not Settle

“We hope people leave their computer screen, go out, explore the city, keep moving, and do. not. settle.” Architects and urban explorers Wahyu Pratomo and Kris Provoost capture the ever-changing megacity of Shanghai from angles most of us can only imagine. In “Do Not Settle” from PKN Breda Vol. 12, Wahyu and Kris show us that though rooftops have long been inaccessible and neglected, they believe they open up new opportunities to study the rapid change occurring in any city.

Canada's Globe and Mail shares with us a lovely story of a PechaKucha Night connection in rural Ontario.  I spotted a poster for “Pecha Kucha” to be held in the library on Thursday, and the tickets were to be purchased at her gallery. “What is pekoe koochoo?” I asked, struggling with the unusual name. This is only the beginning, check out the full story here.

Buffalo Vitascope: The Story of the World's First Movie Theater

"The world's first movie theater was in Buffalo, New York." In Buffalo Vitascope: The Story of the World's First Movie Theater from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, comedian and cartoonist Pat Kewley tells the true story of Vitascope Hall, which opened on Buffalo, New York's Main Street in 1896 and was likely the world's first permanent, specially constructed movie theater. Using period photographs, newspaper clippings, and his own cartoon drawings, Kewley spreads the word about Buffalo's amazing & unique place in film history, touching on the early days of moviegoing, the first films, and the unsung Buffalonians who helped pioneer the film industry in our own backyard.
