Event description

Description

Toilets, water fountains, benches, wi-fi spots and bus stops. An evening of quick-fire presentations from London’s most innovative and creative thinkers on the often-unnoticed small fundamentals that make spaces truly public.

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.
