Sound Inspiration for Art, What We Eat, and Photos from San Sebastian

Presentations In Paula Alasad Asbell's presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2), "sound mind" is not a reference to a psychological state, but refers instead to the source of the inspiration for her art: her favorite music and musicians. Tomas Popp uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) to take a closer look at what we eat, where it comes from, and how it affects us all. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Portsmouth Vol. 12's "Earth" poster you see above, which continues this year's themed series (the previous two were for "Air" and "Fire"). The other poster is for PKN Louisville Vol. 9. Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for the recent PKN San Sebastian Vol. 10 (also known as PKN Donostia). Above, a look at the very happy crowd.  Calendar Here's what you can look forward to this weekend, starting with tonight's (September 21) events: PKN Lucerne Vol. 5, PKN Vancouver Vol. 23, PKN Gisborne Vol. 10, and PKN London Vol. 8, which is part of this week's Lond Design Festival. On Saturday we have PKN Taipei Vol. 21, PKN Tallinn Vol. 5, PKN Hjorring Vol. 1, PKN Geneva Vol. 8, and PKN Lausanne Vol. 10, and then on Sunday it's PKN Kyoto Vol. 8.

Felipe Francisco De Souza

Don't forget that our last PechaKucha Night of the summer is happening this Wednesday (July 31). For the past week we've been highlighting all of the presenters or our Vol. 105, and continue today with Felipe Francisco De Souza. Here, he explains in his own words the topic of this presentation: Japan, a nation with a high likelihood for natural disasters, over the past 100 years, spent considerable efforts to achieve better technical-technological results for it urban reality transformation. Throughout this entire process, methods for territorial planning were institutionalized over the country, mostly participative processes aiming to control urban sprawl and to implement infrastructure and land pattern changes without the extensive use of expropriation. If you compare Japanese cities like Nagoya, Hiroshima or Tokyo, year after year, decade after decade, you will realize massive transformation - new roads, railways, buildings, and public greens. But how they do that? What can we learn from Japanese urban development practices that can contribute for a better urban future worldwide? Read more about Felipe's research.PechaKucha Night 東京105のプレゼンター、Felipe Francisco De Souzaさんが都市計画方法について発表をして下さいます(7月31日、水曜日)。
