Yoshiharu Tsukamoto

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto is an Professor at Columbia GSAPP. Tsukamoto is a graduate of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, where he later taught in the Architecture department.

Tsukamoto specializes in 'Architectural behaviorology' a science that focuses on human behavior both inside and outside buildings, the behavior of buildings in their surroundings and environmental elements. His research aims to synthesize all these behaviors and foster organic architecture.

Tsukamoto co-founded, Tokyo based, Atelier Bow-Wow together with partner Momoyo Kaijima. The firm has built over 25 houses, public museums, and commercial buildings. While majority of this work can be found in Tokyo, you can find the firm's work in Denmark, France and United States. The firm's research studies have contributed to “micro-public-space,” a concept of public space, which has been exhibited across the world at events such as Biennales in Sao Paolo, Venice, Istanbul, and Liverpool.
