Please join us in room 415 on Thursday, November 26th for a lecture entitled “How Behaviors can be Resources for Commonality-based Space Design” by Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture and Building Engineering at Tokyo Institute of Technology.
Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and his wife Momoyo Kajima founded architecture firm Atelier Bow-Wow in 1992. The Tokyo-based practice is renowned for their domestic, commercial and cultural architecture and theories, especially their work surrounding the concept “Behaviorology.” The firm has also championed the experimental project “Micro-Public-Space,” which has been exhibited across the globe. The pair has published 11 books, including the Pet Architecture Guidebook, which documents small buildings situated in tiny locations all over Tokyo. Tsukamoto is the associate professor in the Graduate School of Architecture and Building Engineering at Tokyo Institute of Technology. Most recently, he was the architect for the BMW Guggenheim Lab in New York, Berlin, and Mumbai.

Here are images of the TOCA pavilion’s progress. While the geometry of the pavilion is guided by a QR code-based scanning and visualization system, its structure is monitored, analyzed, and updated with a real-time feedback system.
