Architectural Ethnography: Atelier Bow-Wow

January 17, 2016–March 5, 2017

Gund Hall Gallery

Atelier Bow-Wow investigates the living condition of people through various fieldwork and design practices. They observe architecture and its environments from a behaviorological point of view and always invent unique visual representations specific to the subject and scope at hand, like the book Graphic Anatomy (Toto, 2007). Their interests range broadly from the relationship between house typologies and urban fabric to the relationship between public space and unlocked common resources. This approach has enabled Atelier Bow-Wow to rediscover architecture as a central means of practicing livelihood and to develop the concept of “architectural ethnography.” The show will guide you to experience their ecological thought on life and architecture.
