Giant Model Building & The Love Of Japanese Gardens [PechaKucha]

In our daily stroll through the PechaKucha archive we discover a presentation about how local horticulture can teach the attentive observer a great deal about Japan.

Presentations
Yusuke Iguchi shares (in Japanese/English, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) his latest project, BABEL, the biggest model he has ever produced. He is also trying to raise money for his next project — you’ll find more info on his website.

Jenny Schroder loves Japanese gardens, and she wants the world to know more about Japanese gardens. In her presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 97), she explains how Japanese gardens can teach the attentive observer a great deal about Japan and Japanese design, from design concepts and careful material selection to Japanese history, culture and religion. Learn more on Jenny’s website.

Posters
We’ve added a poster for the upcoming PKN Manizales Vol. 3 to the Tumblr blog, but today’s highlighted poster is for Sunday’s first PKN in Riyadh — you’ll find the list of presenters on the event page.

Photos
Today we have an event report to share for the recent PKN San Antonio Vol. 8 — which includes a few photos as well — and the two photo galleries you see listed below. The photos above are from PKN Beirut Vol. 15, held earlier this month.
