KOOPERATIVES LABOR STUDIERENDER + ATELIER BOW-WOW: URBAN FOREST. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 112 pp. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783959050524 In English.
Publisher's description: Urban Forest explores the behavioral "architecture" of communal spaces as both metaphor and spatial model. The publication opens with photographs and plans of the life-size model for student housing by Tokyo architects Atelier Bow-Wow in response to a briefing by Berlin-based students' initiative Kolabs, which through sleeping modules and open public space interweaves dwellers and architecture. A discussion of Atelier Bow-Wow's methodology and an in-depth conversation between Atelier Bow-Wow co-founder Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Japanese artist Koki Tanaka on shared behaviors follow. Particularly fascinating are the illustrated case studies of spontaneous communal behavior in public spaces including the disposition of chairs in Luxembourg Gardens; Karaoke in Mauerpark, Berlin; Mornings at the Temple of Heaven, Beijing; Cherry Blossom Viewing in Tokyo; swimming in the Rhine in Basel; and fishing at the Galata Bridge in Istanbul.
