Last week, director Phil Coffey was invited to participate in a PechaKucha at London-based property fair MIPIM UK.

Alongside a great panel including Adam Walker, founder of CRATE, Colin MacGadie, chief creative officer at BDG and Will Notley, senior architect at PDP London, Phil presented a high energy, visually driven talk on the inside/outside-ness of the spaces we work, and making place with light and culture.

PechaKucha was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and has turned into a global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format of 20 images x 20 seconds.
