Genealogical Architectural Design from Behaviorology
The School of Architecture and Planning invites you to “Genealogical Architectural Design from Behaviorology,” a discussion by Yoshiharu Tsukamoto on the work of his office, Atelier Bow-Wow, Tokyo. Tsukamoto is an architect and an Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Architecture at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He works and lives at Atelier Bow-Wow in Tokyo, a firm he co-founded with Momoyo Kaijima in 1992. In both 2003 and 2007 he was a Kenzo Tange Visiting Associate Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and in 2007 and 2008 he was a visiting Associate Professor at UCLA. He holds both a Doctorate of Engineering and a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Atelier Bow-Wow has explored and developed a number of theories involving the idiosyncrasies of dense development and the responses of architecture to the behavior of both its inhabitants and the greater urban environment.
