A few notes on Atelier Bow-Wow, the architectural firm of Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kajima.

(1) From: Ecological Urban Architecture: Qualitative Approaches to Sustainability – Thomas Schröpfer (Google Books)

  • “Atelier Bow-Wow’s own house and atelier space exists in this mode of architectural inquiry.The project is specifically placed in the emerging land zoning succession of a flagpost lot, placed literally in the backyard, surrounded entirely by houses save a 2 m-wide path from an alleyway street.”

(2) From: THE POST-BUBBLE CITY AND JAPAN’S NEW WAVE OF INTERNATIONAL DESIGN | Discuss Japan – Japan Foreign Policy Forum

  • Mentions Atelier Bow-Wow and includes photo of “Mini House”.
