Photos By An Architect That Aren’t Buildings & Urban Art Interventions [PechaKucha]
culture

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archives we uncover a presentation featuring pics of what an architect likes other than buildings.

Presentations
PKN Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss is an architect who also has an eye for photography. This presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2) forms a collection of some of his favorite non-building photographs and what makes these photos special to him.

Tom Lisboa is an urban artist, and as we find out through his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), he loves working with points of view, invisible polaroids, and urban interventions.

Posters
We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today: PKN Vladimir Vol. 8 (pictured above) and PKN Gainesville Vol. 5.

Photos
There are of course PKNs of all sizes, and Kuching‘s first PKN last week had a modest start — you’ll find a few photos here [Flickr] — but it generated a lot of love from the audience, who immediately asked when the next edition would take place (soon, we hope). It also got some great coverage from the Borneo Post — we’re certainly happy to have Kuching join the craze.

Calendar
Here are tonight’s events, featuring two Vol. 1s: PKN Bari Vol. 1, PKN Albany Vol. 1, PKN Prague Vol. 30, PKN Kiruna Vol. 3, PKN Dallas Vol. 10, and PKN Stuttgart Vol. 8. Tomorrow, it’s another big Thursday, with the following on tap: PKN Maastricht Vol. 15, PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 3, PKN Miami Vol. 17, PKN Hamptons Vol. 1, PKN Valencia Vol. 14, PKN Winnipeg Vol. 11, PKN Whangarei Vol. 14, PKN Malaga Vol. 1, and PKN Aarhus Vol. 14.
