Young Architects Forum: Pecha Kucha 20 slides 20 seconds each

From Gerard Lee, AIA, YAF Chair:

Our version of Pecha Kucha!
Tuesday, September 18, 2007.
Location: AIA East Bay Chapter Office, 1405 Clay Street, Oakland
Cost: None; this program open to all

It's a chance for you to show a project, detail, creative work or anything you are passionate about and related to what we do as architects. If Architectural Record passed up your project for publication, this is a way to thumb your nose at them and show your work to your peers who understand the difficulties of getting any project completed. Works that are completed, in progress, conceptual, never saw the light of day and even your college projects are all welcome. This is a chance to showcase your creativity and have fun at the same time. Remember to credit any work done while employed by another firm.

It's a slide show. 20 slides max and 20 seconds max each slide. This way each person presents for about 6 minutes and 40 seconds and nobody has to worry about somebody going overboard. So we would prefer powerpoint presentations. Showcase the work and not the fancy powerpoint tools (just simple slides and no fancy gradations, image sliding over images or fades etc).If you don't have powerpoint then Adobe PDFs will work. Just take into consideration how it will be displayed through the projector and go page by page. Just make sure you follow the 20 second rule and no more than 20 pages. Or if you have regular slides and a slide projector, we can fit it in.

Step up to the plate and e-mail either or Gerard Lee. You can choose to answer questions after your presentation or not. Try to keep it short (I know, harder than it sounds).

If you have something you have always wanted to showcase, this is the time for it. Please let us know asap and try to get your files to us by the 11th, so we can compile them. I have the same info posted in our Google group.

If you are not a member of the YAF, it's not a problem. We are open to everyone. So feel free to forward this.
