Behaviorology, Commonalities, and Actor Network Theory
Naš život u gradu je veoma fragmentisan kroz proces industrijalizacije tokom 20. veka i izgubio je uzajamnu povezanost sa ostatkom “sveta”. Upravo zato, vreme je da se istorija iznova sagleda iz perspektive actor network teorije i da se uspostavi novi okvir za arhitektonsko projektovanje.
Our life in the city is very much fragmented through the process of industrialization during 20 century and lost the interrelation with the “world”. It is time to review this history through actor network theory and to establish the new framework for architectural design.
Atelier Bow-Wow is a Tokyo-based firm founded by Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima in 1992. The pair’s interest lies in diverse fields ranging from architectural design to urban research and the creation of public artworks, which are produced, based on the theory called “behaviorology”.
The practice has designed and built houses, public and commercial buildings mainly in Tokyo, as well as Europe and the USA. Their urban research studies lead to experimental project ‘micro-public-space’, a new concept of the public space, which has been exhibited across the world.
Atelier Bow-Wow’s works are produced from the concept “architectural behaviorology”. The word “behavior” includes human behavior inside and outside of the building, physical phenomenon produced by different environmental elements such as light, air, heat, wind, and water in architecture, and building’s behavior in its surroundings. “Architectural behaviorology” aims to understand the behaviors of those different elements, and to synthesize them to optimize their performance in its specific context. It could be new definition of “what organic” in Architecture.
