Pecha Kucha is the Japanese word for, “the sound of conversation.” Pecha Kucha Night is a worldwide phenomena that started in Tokyo in 2003. The brainchild of Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture, Pecha Kucha gives young designers the opportunity to show their work in a public arena. However, presentations are not limited to work alone (that’s where it gets really interesting). There’s just one catch; each person gets 20 slides that must be presented in only 20 seconds each! I was lucky enough to be able to participate in Pecha Kucha Chicago Vol.1 last year and in doing so had the opportunity to meet Mark Dytham. He’s one cool guy. Check out the website for upcoming events by city. If you have the opportunity definitely stop by. It’s a lot of fun!
