For Archipel, PechaKucha becomes a true tradition. In the previous 3 editions, 33 young Flemish agencies spoke for a very young and numerous audience. In this fourth edition, tens of young agencies present their work in the special format.
PechaKucha is a concept that originated in Japan in 2003 and has since spread worldwide. An explanation according to the PechaKucha concept implies that speakers – each in 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide-telling what inspires them and what their vision is on the subject. In this way, the audience is challenged with insights and ideas at a skilled pace and this in a visual, to-the-point presentation. A dynamic evening full of vibrant ideas from young agencies that get a platform to announce their work to the wider public.
For the edition of 2017, 10 young agencies were asked to reflect on the poetry of the everyday:
AgwA (Brussels), BEL Architecten (Antwerpen), Burobill (Brussels), Petillon Ceuppens architecten (Antwerpen), Label Architecture (Brussels), Marcel (Antwerpen/Geraardsbergen), Ouest Architecture (Brussels), Studiobont (Gent), VERS.A (Brussels), PLOEG architecten (Drongen).
