Grids And Circles In Our World & Student Life At A Technical University [PechaKucha]
Design

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archives we uncover a presentation on what it's like to be a first year architecture student in the Czech Republic.

Presentations
Fran Ward sees grids and circles in the world around her. As she explains in her presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2), she uses those references to make sense of that world and her place in it.

In their shared presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2), Marek Hudáč and Matyáš Fialka talk about what it’s like being a 1st year architecture student at the Technical University of Liberec, and describe the atmosphere of the school’s huge studio.

Posters
We really love all of the posters and flyers that Guatemala City has produced for tonight’s Vol. 2, and pictured above we have yet another great promotional item to share. The rest of today’s Tumblr blog additions include posters for PKN Dundee Vol. 4 (below), PKN Dunsborough Vol. 6, PKN Wellington Vol. 17, and PKN Waterville Vol. 9.

Photos
Samara has had a few events now, but here’s a photo gallery [Flickr] that shows off that city’s very first PKN — pictured above, an attentive crowd, and one of that night’s presenters. Below, a photo from the recent PKN Toledo Vol. 3, taken by Kathie VanNess.

Calendar
As we mentioned yesterday, the following five events are happening tonight (October 25), but we have one addition (PKN Lausanne Vol. 12): PKN Guatelmala City Vol. 2, PKN Lille Vol. 2, PKN Knoxville Vol. 5, PKN Chillicothe Vol. 1, and PKN Vladimir Vol. 9. Friday has the following seven events: PKN Orlando Vol. 7, PKN Bern Vol. 19, PKN Waterville Vol. 9, PKN Koszalin Vol. 10, PKN Wellington Vol. 17, PKN Cagliari Vol. 4, and PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 2.
