Redeveloping Japan To Promote Creative Freedom [PechaKucha]

In today’s stroll through the PechaKucha archive we uncover a presentation on how one organization is working to fund local architecture projects.

Later this month, on November 22, we will be teaming up again with ArchiAid for a very special event at SuperDeluxe here in Tokyo. The event will be used to highlight ArchiAid-supported projects in Japan’s Tohoku region, as well as a few presentations that touch on other Tohoku-related initiatives. We’ve also added a donation button on the front of the PK website and at the top of our Inspire Japan website to make donations of 1000 yen or 10,000 yen (or multiple donations in those denominations) to support ArchiAid’s continued work, and more specifically a current project that is seeking 7 million yen (approximately $90,000) in funding — see the following two presentations (in Japanese, recorded at last week’s PKN Tokyo Vol. 96) by Shoko Fukuya and Atelier Bow-Wow’s Yoshiharu Tsukamoto for more details on the project.

Posters
We kick off the week on our Tumblr blog with the poster you see above, for the recent PKN Derby Vol. 7.

Photos
Today we have a few more photos by Michael Holmes to share from last week’s Tokyo Designer Week edition (PKN Tokyo Vol. 96), and we’ll have a proper gallery to share on both our Flickr and Facebook pages by the end of the week.

Calendar
Tonight (November 5) we have two events on tap: PKN San Antonio Vol. 8 and PKN Pittsboro Vol. 12. Here’s what to expect tomorrow: PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 4, PKN Norrkoping Vol. 21, PKN Dundee Vol. 4, PKN Guildford Vol. 10, and PKN Cape Town Vol. 21.
