The Pecha Kucha format (20 seconds per slide X 20 slides per presentation) tends toward a rapid-fire staccato of diverse ideas, interests, and projects. In the Metabolic Studio salon, the plan is to retain the volume of new thoughts and concepts thrown out, but to slow the pace at which they are digested by providing greater time and space in which audience and presenters can discuss the material; effectively blurring the line between presenter and audience as presenters are drawn from the long-standing audience of Metabolic salon attendees.
Hosted by LA Forum Board member Rick Miller. Miller is a cultural geographer researching urban landscapes, both abroad, in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia as well as locally in Los Angeles. The LA Forum for Architecture and Urban Design has been operating pecha kucha events in LA since 2004.
