Pecha Kucha Night Vancouver Vol. 17 – West Coast Modernism

I went to my first Pecha Kucha Night – first one ever.  In Vancouver at the Vogue Theatre.  How many people were in attendance??  The Vogue was packed!

The theme was West Coast Modernism, back to PKN’s architectural roots (I’m guessing PKNVan had morphed into a series of talks about other subject areas too such as social enterprise, sustainbility, and community.)

I loved it.  It was timely.  As a new arrival to Vancouver, it was a beautiful introduction to another face of Vancouver which is celebrated, but somewhat hidden by the attention given to heritage houses and conversation.  Whilst I have an appreciation for our history, I like to remember that Modernist buildings will be the heritage of the future.
