PKN Porto Vol. 5 in 3-D

As you'll be able to tell from the photos included in this post, the recent PechaKucha Night in Porto Vol. 5 included a 3-D component, courtesy of a presentation by Ivo e Matilde, two young architects from Porto. And as the organizers tell us, they also had a Japanese presenter -- Ren Ito, an architect -- who explained to the crowd the meaning of "PechaKucha" (the short answer is that it's the sound of "chit chat").


Video from PKN Porto

httpv:// Here's an old video teaser that the city of Porto produced before it held its very first PechaKucha Night, back in 2008. Appropriately enough, the video is 20 seconds long. You can also see all who presented on the official event page. The city unfortunately no longer has an active city, but you never know when it might start up again.

The Poor Brewers

“Trust me when I say that sharing beer is not a bad way to spend time.” Marilee and Karl Rutherford really like beer. So much, in fact that they decided to go all in and make their hobby into a business (Rude Hippo Brewing Company). Though their pie-in-the-sky initial plans were downgraded to something more realistic, what they traded in volume, they gained in momentum. In “The Poor Brewers” from a special AIA 2014 Convention edition of PKN Chicago, hear the story of their trials and ultimate triumph.
