Yoshiharu Tsukamoto of Atelier Bow-Wow presents a lecture on his concept of Architectural Behavior, which investigates the physical responses to natural elements such as light, air, heat, wind, water, human behaviour related to custom, and the way in which buildings relate to the city and their surroundings. It aims to understand these different types of interactions and to let them perform meaningfully in their specific context. It enables a synthesis of different time scales and rhythms in one physical entity. This, he argues, is the power of architecture.
Yoshiharu Tsukamoto was a CCA Mellon Senior Fellow in 2013.
