What is the relationship between a specific physical environment, whether architectural, urban or natural, and how the occupants use, experience, develop and maintain a space? And which different rules and decisions shape a space and its particular use?
These questions are the driving force behind Atelier Bow-Wow’s delightful and thought-provoking search for the harmonious balance between forms of being (physical space) and forms of doing (how space is occupied). Designed as a scrapbook containing a wide-ranging collection of ideas aimed at starting an exploration, the publication blends observations and comments with sketches and photographs.
Text in English and Japanese.
