Sarah Lee from SKY YUTAKA will be participating in the Pecha Kucha event organised by RIBA HK Chapter on 18th of September. She will discuss her experience of working on the forthcoming traveling exhibition “Tall Storeys – Evolution in Hong Kong Architecture 1965 – 2014” and her thoughts on Chinese diaspora and UK.
On 18th September 2014 the RIBA Hong Kong Chapter, in association with the British Consulate General in Hong Kong, will be delighted to present the most diverse, fast-paced and creative nights of architecture in Asia Pacific, with a host of the most high-profile creative minds at TALK! 2014.
As part of The GREAT Britain Campaign and a precursor to November’s GREAT Festival of Creativity right here in Hong Kong, TALK! 2014 will be the highlight evening event of the RIBA HK Chapter’s calendar for Autumn 2014. It brings together 12 acclaimed speakers from the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, in a social presentation night powered by the internationally-renowned PeckaKucha talk format, on projects, design relationships and future of architecture between UK and Hong Kong.
For those unfamiliar with the format, PechaKucha is Japanese for “chit chat”, and allows presenters to talk on a subject close to their heart with 20 slides and only 20 seconds per slide, leading to succinct, diverse and often highly entertaining results.
TALK! 2014 is a free event and will be held at Isono Bar & Eatery located on 6/F of Hong Kong’s new hub for the creative industries, PMQ, the revitalised Police Married Quarters in the heart of the Central / Soho district. The event will run from 6.00 – 10.00pm on 18th September, with 10-12 speakers each giving their 6 minute 40 second presentations (20 slides with 20 seconds per slide) with overall theme of “Brit’s Abroad!’ in 2 sessions with a networking interval.
