An evening of quick-fire presentations exploring the shortlisted and winning entries of The London Festival of Architecture’s City of London design competitions.
Over the last two years London Festival of Architecture have worked with a variety of talented architects, designers and artists to bring high quality interventions to the Square Mile including bespoke benches, parklets and installations.
The format, Pecha Kucha (ペチャクチャ), was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and has turned into a massive global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes presentations concise, keeps things moving at a rapid pace and holds its audience.
