John Ronan, Jon Langford among presenters unveiled for Pecha Kucha Chicago Global Day for Haiti February 20

There'll be more players to be named later, but a number of names have already surfaced as part of an all-star roster for this Saturday, February 20's special afternoon edition of Pecha Kucha Night Chicago, part of a Global Day for Haiti with all proceeds benefiting Architecture for Humanity's reconstruction efforts in that country. Presenters will include Katherine Darnstadt of Architecture For Humanity, Nadia Lemoine Andre - speaking passionately of her homeland, musician Jon Langford, architect Andy Warfel and designer Mark Taylor from the U of I, Champaign Urbana, architect John Ronan. Stayed tuned for more names later.

Tickets are $25.00, with special VIP seating at $100.00. Again, all proceeds going to AFP's work in Haiti. Doors open at 1:00 p.m. at Pecha Kucha Chicago's usual home, Martyr's at 3855 N. Lincoln, with the program beginning about 2:00, which makes this a rare all-ages event. Tickets can be charged by phone: 800.585.8499, or purchased on-line. Information on-line.

For February 23rd, a correction and an adjustment. The Community Interface Committee: Inaugural Meeting at AIA/Chicago actually begins at 6:00 p.m., and a scheduling adjustment has pushed back the Chicago Architectural Club event, Tristan d’Estree Sterk and Douglas Pancoast - The Quiet War: Architecture and Digital Technologies, one half hour - reception at 6:30 p.m., program at 7:00.

There are 30 great events still to come on the February architectural calendar. Check them all out here.
