The LTDW PechaKucha Box design will evoke the energy and buzz of the legendary global Pecha Kucha network conceived in 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo-based Klein Dytham architecture. Named for the Japanese phrase meaning “the sound of conversation” PechaKucha is renowned for its concise presentation format, which ensures the rapid multiplication of creative audiovisual chatter at events in major cities the world over. With ‘Future City’ as its thematic focus the LTDW PechaKucha box will create a lively pass-through environment populated and saturated with fast-paced sights and sounds – slides, videos and presentation panels – of visionary cities and city life.
