Being a small group of architects working out of a 450 sf studio in Fremont, at times we wish there was a way to meet and talk with more individuals within our architectural field, and the creative arts in general. We decided to start a bi-monthly event at our studio with the intention of providing a venue for interesting people to talk about their work or issues that are important to them, and to have an informal discussion about the work amongst a small group of people. We call our event rhaRIFFS. Five individuals give six-minute and forty-second presentations (riffs) inspired by a selected one-word theme or topic that we provide in advance. The presentations are to be delivered using the Pecha Kucha rules, with twenty slides presented for twenty seconds each. Three to four panelists are also invited to assist in encouraging a conversation following the presentations. Our intention is to provide a setting for an intimate, lively, and fun discussion about interesting work.
