PLASTER NIGHT 11/25/2013 6:30PM ~


archiPicnic is presenting another fun learning event for architects in NYC


 
Monday, November 25th from 6:30 PM -

At Kiwa Salon East + RounGe (201 E 23rd Street @ 3rd Ave, 2nd Floor)

The event is FREE, with light refreshments, wine and music

We are gathering NYC architects to the KIWA Salon East + RounGe NYC to experience plastering a wall using a super ecological Japanese plaster, Takachiho Shirasu.  This plaster is made from 100% natural materials including Shirasu, a volcanic soil derived from magma.  Interestingly, this plaster has been proven to purify the air and remove odor, as well as control humidity!

Please come join us to see it with your own eyes, feel it with your own hands!­

Arigato for coming- IPPO x 365 - Reflections on the Japanese Front

Thank you so much for coming to our IPPO x 365 event! (日本語は下記へ)



Photo: Hanako Kamiya

On Saturday, March 10 2012, 140 people gathered in SOHO and were moved by energetic and heart-warming presentations.  $1,022 in donation were collected and will be sent to Architecture for Humanity’s Japan Reconstruction Fund.
"IPPO" means "One Step".  This event might not be a big step towards the reconstruction, but I believe it encouraged many New Yorkers to take their steps. 
For those who missed it, please take a look at the recorded video.
Thank you again and let's keep stepping forward!

ARIGATO!! for coming

 ARIGATO FOR COMING


Amazing speakers

Organizing team and helpers

Thank you very much for coming to our special event, Global Pecha Kucha Night- Inspire Japan last night.  11 speakers presented, and nearly 280 people RSVP'd, and well over 100 people came despite the heavy rain.

We raised $2,011, all of which will be donated to Architecture for Humanity.

I noticed that the Global PechaKucha Night was not happening in NYC on Monday, and I decided to organize one on Tuesday.  We put this event together from scratch in only 4 days - that's SOKOJIKARA!

I cannot thank enough all the speakers who put their amazing presentation together in a couple of days.  I cannot thank enough the organizing team members and helpers who worked so hard to make this happen.  I cannot thank enough our sponsors, TOTO USA and GSAPP Columbia University who kindly offered us space, food and drinks.

For those who missed, you can still watch the video on Ustream
(Since we had some technical difficulties, it starts from the 3rd presenter.)

I would like to continue my effort to raise awareness, remind people of this tragedy and support the long-term reconstruction of Japan.

Thank you again!!

What is Global PechaKucha Night – Inspire Japan?
Japan has inspired designers for many generations. On the March 11, Japan suffered what has been described as a 1000 year event. The earthquake and tsunami destroyed 400km of coastline, killing over 10,000 people, leaving 400,000 people homeless, and has triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding. Japan has inspired us all, now is it our turn to "Inspire Japan."

Please join us on April 16 and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan. Let's all come together and show Japan that the creative world is thinking of them, that all is not lost, and that it is possible to stand up and rebuild, even in villages and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible.

- Astrid Klein & Mark Dytham, PechaKucha Founders - Tokyo


Support Architecture for Humanity?
Yes! Proceeds from Inspire Japan will go directly to Architecture for Humanity (AFH), who PechaKucha supported last year with Global PechaKucha for Haiti. They currently have a Team in Sendai and a design fellow in Tokyo. http://architectureforhumanity.org/


What are PechaKucha Nights?
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - just about anything really, in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.


What is 20x20?
PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images.


I have said enough, please come join us and Inspire Japan! Please check us back!!
