for the 12th international architecture biennale in venice, italy, atelier bow-wow presents a visual anthology of their dwelling projects in an exhibition entitled, ‘house behaviorology’. since the firm’s inception in 1992, the studio has been interested in the elements and behaviour of the micro/macroclimates in our living environment, of people, and buildings. the accurately detailed models present in venice focus on illustrating space as a component of living, demonstrate the power of physical models, as well as showcase the diverse design approach of the practice.

  • what i really loved, and pretty much made by visit to the Biennale, is that bow-wow’s houses are lovely, practically the best thing there, and they use our stacking chair in their houses. you can see them in the videos, drawings and models.
    (I want to add an image, but I don’t seem able to)
