Atelier Bow-Wow

Atelier Bow-Wow was established by Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima in 1992. The pair's interest lies in diverse fields ranging from urban research to architectural design and the creation of public artworks.

The seminal report on small architecture in urban Tokyo; 'Pet Architecture Guidebook', and the analysis of Tokyo's anonymous hybrid architecture; 'Made In Tokyo', were both published in 2001, marking the initial moves into urban research. These were followed with work abroad; concerning the 13th arrondissement of Paris, and work in  Japan; focusing on, amongst others, Tokyo, Atami, Mito, Fukuoka and Tsukuba.

While on one hand the practice has designed over 20 detached private houses in central Tokyo, in recent years the completion of projects such as the Hana Midori Cultural Centre and Mado Building mark an expansion towards larger scale works such as museums and commercial architecture.

Atelier Bow-Wow's experimental projects with micro-public-space have been exhibited across the world in international art museums as part of events such as Gwangju Biennale (Korea), Shanghai Biennale (China), Echigo Tsumari Triennale (Japan), Venice Biennale (Italy), Busan Biennale (Korea), Sao Paolo Biennale (Brazil) and Yokohama Triennale (Japan).

In 2006 the monograph 'Bow-Wow from Post Bubble City' was published, followed this year by 'Graphic Anatomy - Atelier Bow-Wow' the catalogue of their second solo exhibition, held in Tokyo.
