PechaKucha Night Chicago partners with the Chicago Architecture Biennial to uncover the unexpected in architecture — unexpected talent, unexpected ideas - in 400 seconds. PechaKuchas tell great stories. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different.  You can pretty much count on this PechaKucha Night to be an architectural box of chocolates. If you’ve been to a PechaKucha Night in Chicago, or in any of the more 800 PechaKucha cities worldwide, you know this is a great live event, with real people, real communication, real beer, and real creative fun -  a “real” social network.

Please join us in Preston Bradley Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center. The bar opens at 5:30 pm and presentations begin at 6:00 pm. This event is a part of Up All Night with Architecture
