With this second edition of Graphic Anatomy, Atelier Bow-Wow allows a crucial inside look at a range of more than 40 recent projects, including residential buildings, public facilities and installations created specifically for exhibitions, with page after page of detailed sectional perspective drawings. Just like the first edition of Graphic Anatomy these elaborate diagrams are based on section details drafted in the final design phase of each project, whereby the studio seeks the best representation of design characteristics, investigating various parameters by shifting perspectives and drawing in different ways. Latent spatiality and geometric form become readily apparent to the observer, while the graphic anatomy of lines and data informatively depicts each architectural work.

Zoom image View original size This is a project for speculative building - the land is bought, value is added through design, tenants are found, and the project is sold off. The site is located in the wedge between a fork in the road on sloping land, so something with character as a landmark was sought by the client. Since the tenant details were not determined, in developing the design we could not help but concentrate on contextual elements. In seeking out common criteria from responses to various separate external factors, such as the difference between levels on the site, the shading envelope, assumed circulation paths and so on, we came to feel the necessity of some internal rhythm. Here we started looked at the windows and balconies of the apartment buildings that surround the site, and in a mirroring relation, arranged openings in a chequered pattern on the three frontages facing roads. For the windows, we took the largest standard dimension for double glass windows as a baseline, varying the proportions in response to external conditions.
