Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima founded Atelier Bow Wow in the 1990's soon after Japan had suffered the collapse of its economic bubble and went on to realise a series of distinguished house designs - including Mini House (1998), their own House and Atelier (2005) and Split Machiya (2010)  - in parallel with the production of publications that carefully documented Tokyo’s suburban landscape. As part of the programme of talks supporting the exhibition, The Japanese House: Architecture and Life after 1945, Tsukamoto will discuss his influential position as both observer and designer.
