PechaKucha - Telling Architecture (the Hidden Stories of Buildings)

Updated: May 29, 2019

On a Saturday evening in April our director, Abigail Hurst, had the honour of presenting at PechaKucha (20 slides x20 seconds) at the newly re-opened Christchurch Town Hall. Asked to share 'hidden stories,' the brief led her to relate a series of personal stories about how buildings have shaped her life.


Follow the link below to watch a journey that will lead you to our practice today, and a proposal for a fresh way of telling the hidden stories of architecture, through the intersection of two disciplines: drawing and writing, to bring meaning and richness to our lives.
