The Commons as an Architectural Assignment

Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, deepen the understanding of the commons as architectural figure and assignment, by making a distinction between commonalities and resources. Atelier Bow-Wow holds that our conception of the commons depends largely on the discovery, activation and reproduction of resources so that they can play a broader role for the community at large.

Momoyo Kaijima and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto are the founders of the Tokyo based office Atelier Bow-Wow, and were visiting professor at the Chair of Methods & Analysis of the Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment.
