Kem Hinton speaks at Pecha Kucha

This past week, the Nashville Civic Design Center held the 13th volume of its Pecha Kucha 20×20 event at the David Lusk Gallery. Pecha Kucha, pronounced /ˌpetʃə ˈkʊtʃə/ [or “puh-CHA coo-CHA” for those of us in Nashville] is a simple presentation format where you show 20 slides, for 20 seconds each. The Pecha Kucha website explains the need for this type of format: Why Pecha Kucha? “Because architects talk too much! Give a microphone and some images to an architect — or most creative people for that matter — and they’ll go on forever! Give PowerPoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.”

At this past week’s event, 8 presenters gave talks about topics surrounding the theme “Design Field Trip,” including stories from their travels abroad, road trips within the United States and even trips around our own fine city. Tuck-Hinton’s own Kem Hinton gave a talk entitled “A Convergence of Faiths” in which he detailed his experiences and knowledge about Jerusalem and its architectural significance.
