Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 as a place for
young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
But as we all know, give a mike to a designer (especially an architect) and youll be trapped for hours. The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system for avoiding this fate. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each giving
6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives
more people the chance to show.
Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can
be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a demand that seems to
be global as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 100 cities across the world. Please Come and
Check out the Pecha Kucha Night Taipei edition, which hold by essential tpes mother company, isaiah creative, at its mother city, Taipei.
