Linked to NLA’s ‘Industrial & Logistics: Can London Deliver?’ report, this PechaKucha presents UK wide projects at the forefront of sector innovations.
This NLA PechaKucha looks at a number of both London-based and UK-wide projects that operate at the forefront of the latest trends in both the industrial and logistics sector. What are the challenges and opportunities of these industries? Can these projects provide alternative responses to pressing sector issues?
The format, Pecha Kucha (ペチャクチャ), was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and has turned into a massive global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes presentations concise, keeps things moving at a rapid pace and holds its audience.
Come join us to take a closer look at projects from the report’s showcase that evidence the innovation and ambition of a sector that wants to deliver more for London.
