Tell Your Story. But Do it Fast.

Got 6 minutes and 40 seconds to tell us about the best d@mn thing you’ve ever done as a designer? Come tell your story at Architecture Exchange East this November. We’re seeking up to 6 presenters for a Pecha Kucha (PK)-style session at ArchEx.

A good PK is creative, tells a great story, and shares something inspiring (with a little humor mixed in). It’s a format made for designers by designers. With our focus on developing sessions that encourage conversation, connections, and collaborative learning, we figured it was about time we brought the PK back to ArchEx.  We’ve only got time for 5-6 speakers, so pitch us your best idea by June 28 and we’ll get back with you in July.

YEP! I’m in.

What the heck is a PK?

Pecha Kucha (Japanese for chit-chat) is a concise presentation format where speakers tell their story using only 20 slides — usually with a single image. The slides automatically advance each 20 seconds while you talk.  

This format was conceived of by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture as a way to showcase creative design work through quick informative presentations.

What is Architecture Exchange East?

ArchEx continues to be the mid-Atlantic’s largest annual educational event and expo with more than 60 educational sessions, behind-the-scenes architectural tours, engaging special events, and cutting-edge vendors.
