In 2003 architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (www.Klein-Dytham.com) organized a first evening in order to exchange ideas in Tokyo. In July 2012, they organized their 94th PechaKucha Night, with our Jean-Paul Toonen as one of the presenters (watch his story)!
PechaKucha (Japanese for chit-chat) is based on the belief that you don’t need lots of time to explain a good idea. PechaKucha enables you to spread ideas with 20 slides, 20 seconds each. Your goal, explaining the essence of a new idea, building, concept or method, takes only 6 minutes and 40 seconds. In an informal and inspiring atmosphere.
PechaKucha works already for more than 543 cities worldwide, in spite of the tight lines of 20 slides of 20 seconds each. Please visit the international PechaKucha website and register for the newsletter: www.pecha-kucha.org
