Architectural Ethnography by Momoyo Kaijima


As part of the workshop "Architekturethnographie zwischen Entwurf und Forschung“ Momoyo Kaijima, Chair of Architectural Behaviorology at ETH Zurich and co-founding of Atelier Bow-Wow, will give a public lecture on her approach and several of her projects:

Architectural Behaviorology is a design theory and methodology we have adopted to rediscover the forgotten values of resources through the lens of ethnography. Architectural Ethnography is a graphical representation like drawings of society and culture based on fieldwork of buildings and the environment. The lecture will show the contents of the Japan Pavilion in 2018 at the Venice Biennale, an Atelier Bow-Wow project and the Public Drawing Workshop at ETHZ.

The lecture is part of the workshop “Architekturethnographie zwischen Entwurf und Forschung” at TU Berlin organized by Lidia Gasperoni (FG Architekturtheorie, Institut für Architektur, TU Berlin), Sabine Hansmann (Institut für Geschichte und Theorie der Architektur und Stadt, TU Braunschweig), and Séverine Marguin (SFB 1265 Re-Figuration von Räumen, Institut für Soziologie, TU Berlin) in cooperation with the Netzwerk Architekturwissenschaft.
