Momoyo Kaijima’s Tokyo-based architectural firm, Atelier Bow-Wow, is among the most innovative practices working today. Achieving near cult status among architects and students around the world, Kaijima and her collaborator Yoshiharu Tsukamoto have built a career confronting the challenges posed by the dense urban environments of Japan. The pair’s interests range from urban research to architectural design and public artwork.

Their much-published work includes award-winning houses such as Mini House (1999) and House & Atelier Bow-Wow (2005), while recent projects such as the Hanamidori Cultural Centre (2005) mark an expansion towards a larger scale. Atelier Bow-Wow has also been highly active in research, publishing a number of innovative and influential books on vernacular architecture, particularly Pet Architecture Guidebook and Made in Tokyo. Their artwork has been exhibited around the globe, and has been included in biennales in Korea, China, Japan, Italy and Brazil.

Andrew Barrie, Professor of Design at The University of Auckland School of Architecture and Planning says: “Atelier Bow-Wow have been globally influential in re-establishing the importance of small-scale urban patterns and daily life in architectural design. They observe the city around them, and use their discoveries to inject joy and drama into the everyday activities that take place in the buildings they design.”

Momoyo Kaijima is visiting New Zealand as the University of Auckland School of Architecture and Planning’s International Architect in Residence for 2010. This programme is a new initiative by the School that allows a wider national community the opportunity to interact with a globally significant architect and presents radically different approaches to the shifting role of the architectural profession.

The University of Auckland International Architect in Residence program is generously supported by The Warren Trust, The Block Foundation, The Asia:NZ Foundation, GIB, and the Auckland Regional Council.

Momoyo Kaijima’s visit to Christchurch is generously supported by the NZIA Canterbury Branch and the Arts Centre.
