Designing Downtown, one of the largest and richest citizen-driven conversations about urban cores in Canada, returns to Edmonton October 5, 2013. Edmonton’s downtown will come alive with an eclectic mix of events and interventions celebrating Designing Downtown’s vision, anchored by Pecha Kucha Night 17. For a full list of upcoming events, visit www.designingdowntown.ca.
Designing Downtown is a movement to transform downtowns founded by Progress Unlimited www.progressunlimited.ca , MADE www.joinmade.org, and Edmonton’s NextGen. Designing Downtown is a vehicle for inter-city exchange for partnerships that seek to enrich and advance the conversations and actions we take to shape downtowns as spaces for everyone. Designing Downtown is an experiment and exchange; an opportunity to create dialogue that celebrates & critiques; and a space to be a fixture in and designer of the urban experience.
Pecha Kucha Night 17, Saturday, October 5, 2013, at the Winspear Centre www.winspearcentre.com , features speakers from different regions and backgrounds that will challenge audiences to think in new ways about how we design and develop our city cores.
About Pecha Kucha
Tokyo’s Klein Dytham Architecture www.klein-dytham.com first devised Pecha Kucha, the Japanese phrase for “the sound of chitchat” in 2003, as a night for young designers to meet, network, and discuss their projects. The catch: each designer gives a presentation containing only 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, for a total presentation length of six minutes 40 seconds. Conceived as a venue through which young designers could meet, show their work, exchange ideas, and network, the format keeps presentations concise, fast-paced and entertaining.
