Atelier Bow Wow: Victory Stand


Atelier Bow Wow, designed a visual backdrop to the Olympic torch relay in July 2012. This consisted of a line of structures, built from straw bales which formed a viewing point as the Olympic torch came through the University. Atelier Bow Wow visited agricultural shows when they came on a research visit and became interested in the architectural properties of straw, which they utilised within the construction of this new work.

Atelier Bow Wow explore the use and function of space within urban environments. As working architects in Tokyo, Atelier Bow Wow developed the term ‘pet architecture’ – a style of small, ad hoc, multi-functional structures that make the most of limited space. For over 10 years they have also created ‘micro public spaces’, using the framework of art galleries and museum spaces to experiment with structure, movement and function.
