Atelier Bow-Wow

Atelier Bow-Wow is counted among the most diverse architecture firms of today. The firm boasts over 40 residential houses, public buildings and numerous installations to its name, in addition to a substantial body of urban design studies and theoretical essays.

This major first-time publication unifies Atelier Bow-Wow’s architectural and theoretical work and places it critically in its context. In a chronological order all projects from 1994–2012 are documented by texts, sketches, plans and images, followed by a photographic essay by photographer Lena Amuat.

Atelier Bow-Wow (Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima) is part of a generation of architects that took the recession in early 1990s Japan as an opportunity to develop a new design practice in response to changed planning and social conditions.

The firm’s first studies focused on anonymous Tokyo buildings and highlighted the ways in which they met the requirements of residents and visitors whilst also complying with infrastructure and planning regulations.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at ETH Zurich (Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture), 28 February – 18 April 2013.
