Yoshiharu Tsukamoto (塚本由晴) - Architect, Atelier Bow-Wow


Tsukamoto founded Atelier Bow-Wow with Momoyo Kaijima in 1992. Atelier Bow-Wow is a leader of a new generation of Tokyo architects that promote a site- and use-specific approach to design. Their practice re-evaluates the current architectural character of Tokyo in an attempt to achieve a more responsive urbanism through the adaptability and mutative qualities of architecture. Their small houses in Tokyo are well designed residences on small sites that are integrated into the urban landscape.

In 1999, Tsukamoto designed an 86 square-meters residence called Mini House in Tokyo and demonstrated the potential of small lots. He received the 16th Yoshioka Prize and Gold Prize for Residential Architecture from Tokyo Society of Architects and Building Engineers in 1999 for this work.

Tsukamoto received his doctorate from Tokyo Institute of Technology in engineering in 1994, and now teaches at the Institute as an associate professor. He also studied at Ecole d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville from 1987-88. He is an author of several books including, Bow-wow from post bubble city (2006), Contemporary House Studies (2004), Pet Architecture Guide Book (2001), and Made in Tokyo (2001).
