Tokyo's Klein Dytham Architecture first devised Pecha Kucha, the Japanese phrase for "the sound of chitchat" in 2003, as a night for young designers to meet, network, and discuss their projects. The catch: each designer gave a presentation containing only 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, for a total presentation length of six minutes 40 seconds. These constraints challenged presenters to clarify their ideas and match each thought with the perfect image.Since then, Pecha Kucha Nights are held by a global community of almost 400 cities and the presenters have become just as diverse. Pecha Kucha is a grown-up "show and tell". The presentations allow the audience to learn, expand their perspectives, and leave the night with something new on their mind. It's food for thought.

Edmonton is a do-it-yourself kind of town, from the first settlers at Fort Edmonton to today's emerging tech and start up communities. With the redevelopment of the City Centre Airport lands on the horizon, PKN X will explore the potential for a D.I.Y. Downtown. Presenters are encouraged to explore the architectural, social, environmental and cultural potential for our urban core.
