A unique group made up of talented students and young professionals that are coming both from Italy and from China have been selected for the Pecha Kucha event that will happen on the 25th January 2014. CONGRATULATIONS!
“ITAD Italy-China Cultural Synergy” Powered by Pecha Kucha – 25 January 2014 at 6.00pm (location : Santa Lucia dei Filippini, Largo Argentina. Entrance: Via delle Botteghe Oscure 42 Rome, Italy).
A Powered by Pecha Kucha event will take place as a special edition for ITAD. PechaKucha (Japanese: ペチャクチャ, chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights. These events began in February 2003 by Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture, as a way to attract people and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas. As of June 2012, PechaKucha Nights were held in 534 cities worldwide. Well-known presenters at PechaKucha Nights have included the architects Jun Aoki, Toyo Ito,Rem Koolhaas, designers such as Tom Dixon, Ron Arad and Thomas Heatherwick. However, the success of each presentation relies purely on the presenter’s personality and the strength of her or his ideas; the format places young designers and students on the same footing as global stars.
