"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."
In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape.

The Art of Scrapture, a Spanish Hotel in Hanoi, and a Cold Night Out in Aalborg
Presentations What is scrapture? It's the word that local Blue Mountains artist Kathy O'Hara uses to describe her work, which is all about the recycling of disused materials, revitalised as unique sculptures and functional items. In this presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 1), Kathy discusses the nature of her work. El Fabricante de Espheras talk about one of their projects in which they were tasked to redesign a Spanish hotel in Hanoi -- it opened in May of last year. The concept was based on bamboo, and they used aspects of traditional Vietnamese culture for the design. The new interior is very restrained and "quiet," especially compared to the loudness seen outside on the streets of Hanoi. In the presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Valencia Vol. 13), they also cover how they worked together with the Vietnamese, surmounting difficulties in communication. Posters It was added to the Tumblr blog last week, but let's highlight the poster for tonight's PKN Orlando Vol. 6 -- remember, the Orlando series is a "Silver Brick Award" winning event. Photos and report A couple of photo galleries to share with you today, along with an event report and a blog post link -- above, a few photos from last month's PKN Tokyo Vol. 92, taken by Michael Holmes (see the gallery link below). PKN Tokyo Vol. 92 [Facebook] -- on Flickr tooPKN Aalborg Vol. 8 [Flickr]PKN Bilbao Vol. 12 [Creative Zentrum, blog post]As an addition to the gallery of photos for this past Tuesday's PKN Aalborg Vol. 8 that we linked to above (taken by Mads Christiansen), here's a report on the event from PKN Aalborg organizer Annette Scheibel.PechaKucha Night Aalborg #8 had the theme TIME, and was held outside in the summer-cold yard at Huset. We opened with a videobite from a theatreperformance at Det Hem'lige Teater in Aalborg called AURA, where interactive technology plays with the actor on stage. Titgen Pavia Toft talked about the AURA theatre project and the challenges of using interactive technology. Architect Thiru Manickam's "A Design Journey" -- time, process and knowledge -- was a very exiting presentation about how nature inspires archtecture. This was followed by Sandro Masai and Edit E. Vizer's TIME-LIFE project (an interactive installation project), and then Kathrine Skovsgaard, a volounteer for RED Barnet, an organisation that works with childrens rights. Industrial designer Elodie Lepaludier made an extremely interesting presentation about ergonomic solutions for elderly. At the break we chose to show a very beautiful trailer by film director Mads Jeppesen for his documentary about the singer LYDMOR. The second half started out with jazz-bass player Kenneth Dahl Knudsens and his amazing music journey to New York recording his last album. Nikkie Dahm Breinholt shared her vision of transferring two World War bunkers into art-projects with respect for history. Mads Jeppesen talked about his work and his learning time in New York, and we finished off with FOREDANCING, live projected to the screen as an outro by Milan Prabu and Valerie Rizzo. A great evening competing for audience with the football European Championships on TV and cold weather -- 50 people stayed and enjoyed and kept each other warm. THANK YOU!!!Calendar First, here's a reminder of the PKN action that will be taking place this Friday night (June 15): PKN Zilina Vol. 19, PKN Orlando Vol. 6, PKN Des Moines Vol. 10, and PKN Paris Vol. 18.

Over 100 miles above the Arctic circle, they joined a group of international artists and designers, who worked in pairs or groups to design rooms for the hotel, which consisted entirely of ice.
To Feel at Home
Most of us can say with certainty that our idea of home is tied to a specific location. Can you? Roshi Givechi spent much of her youth on the move -- even now, she travels about Asia for work; never truly settling on any one place -- and in "To Feel at Home", today's Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 104) she defines the elements, experiences, rituals that as a whole form her amoebic idea of this concept we hold so dear.
“Home is not the place you’re born, home is the place you become yourself.” Tamim Al-Kadasi speaks on his conceptual definition of home. In “HOME” from PKN Sana’a Vol. 3 he shows us that where you come from is less important than where you’re going. Tamim discusses feeling homesick in his homeland after living abroad, and the realizations he's come to along the way.
The Gentleman Honey Farmer
Pecha Kucha Volume 1 - Creating A Healthy City Urban beekeeping, along with other urban agriculture practices, has been on the rise in recent years. Drastic declines in honey bee populations over the last decade have severe economic and environmental implications. Honey bee colonies have demonstrated higher survival rates in urban settings. Many world-class cities have adopted policies that allow for reasonable beekeeping practices, while other municipalities maintain policies that are detrimental to the survival of a creature whose existence is critical to a healthy ecosystem. This presentation aims to provide a general overview of urban beekeeping practices. Come hear more from Adam Nelson is the founder of GeoBees, an early-stage software development company dedicated to apicultural research using geospatial analysis.

In “The Lost Tools of Henry Hoke” from PKN Townsville Vol. 7, Mark uncovers the history of Australia’s greatest unknown genius inventor, Henry Hoke, who can be credited with the creation of the wooden magnet, and the clockwork car.

Hands with Hope
“There are stories after stories of young children who are already missing permanent teeth because their moms had pulled them because the excruciating pain was too much to bear. ” Restless in her day-to-day profession of dental hygienist, Annie Nardone found a way to create more meaningful work for herself while still using her expertise in dentistry. In PechaKucha Night Batavia’s 1st volume, she discusses how she created Hands with Hope, a not-for-profit foundation, to deliver training, dental treatment, equipment, and supplies to impoverished communities in Central America. Currently, Hands with Hope maintains and supports three fully functioning dental clinics in Honduras and Guatemala, which are run and operated by locally trained individuals eager to serve their communities.

A graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, Clay Achee has studied and worked in the film and television industry for over 10 years. His other hobby? Cooking? Golf? Nah, he makes puppets. We thoroughly enjoyed his presentation The Rabbit Hole of Puppet Making at PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. I.
