PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 13 – Local and International Architecture Audiences Discuss Design

There’s one specific event coming up on Friday, April 12 that promises to be a real eye-opener for those who are interested in a variety of progressive Buffalo architectural and design initiatives. It’s a chance to learn about happenings at Silo City, ArtFarms, along with all sorts of architectural and design directions that are being taken by a variety of local and national players in the field. The presenters are coming together as part of PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 13 – a presentation that is based on showing 20 slides, with 20 seconds to explain each slide. This format keeps the presentation fresh and moving. 
On that evening, the 66th The Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) Annual Conference will be hosted at the same time. That will provide a mix of both local and national presenters, ten in all, who will each deliver “a 6 minute and 40 second dose of ideas.”
