PechaKucha Night Future City

Last weekend Hello was invited to PechaKucha night for Little Tokyo Design Week (LTDW) where our CEO/Creative Director, David Lai joined the lineup of 48 speakers as they presented for 2 minutes each with 6 images in 20 seconds revolved around the topic, “future city.”

David’s talk explored a future city with inspiration from childhood imaginings where flying bikes and good robots could exist in an environment that interacts and reacts to our needs.

PechaKucha was a lively event with design + fashion projections outside and live music. We especially enjoyed the shipping containers turned small pop-up galleries in the JANM plaza. Many thanks to Hitoshi Abe, chair of LTDW, who invited us to participate in PechaKucha night.

Little Tokyo Design Week

 

Join us this Saturday as Hello’s CEO/Creative Director, David Lai takes part in Pecha Kucha night, a series of presentations given by 48 leading contemporary voices in design and architecture as part of Little Tokyo Design Week (LTDW).

PechaKucha Night

Pecha Kucha (meaning “chit chat” in Japanese) started off as an event for young designers to meet and share their work with the public, but has now become a massive celebration where hundreds of events take place in different cities around the world, like St. Petersburg to Nagoya to Leeds. The theme of this Saturday’s Pecha Kucha night is based on the idea of “Future City,” where presentations will focus on visionary cities and city life. We’re excited to hear from the great roundup of speakers, especially Hitoshi Abe, architect and chair of both LTDW and UCLA Architecture and Design.

Pecha Kucha Night starts at 8:00 pm this Saturday ( 7/16) at the JACCC Plaza in Little Tokyo – come by earlier for food trucks and music!

UCLA RUMBLE

Earlier this week we were at the UCLA Architecture and Urban Design program’s RUMBLE event, where students, professors and alumni get together in celebration of the research, design work and conversations that took place in their program this year. This year’s focus was to disrupt and overcome obstacles in their field to find a new paradigm in architecture and urban design.

We also got to hang out with architect and chair of UCLA Architecture and Design, Hitoshi Abe.
