PechaKucha is a format designed by architects in Tokyo, meaning ‘chit chat’ in Japanese. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal but the format is strict – you have 20 images and can speak about each for 20 seconds, making talks 6.40 minutes long.

For this event, taking inspiration from the GREEN2014 exhibition and the Stalled Spaces Scotland Programme, the title is Pretty Vacant and the themes (or starting points) are transforming vacant space, animating public space and urban food growing.

Event produced by TAKTAL and curated by Architecture and Design Scotland. PechaKucha is devised and shared by Klein Dytham Architecture.
