On Friday, I had the opportunity to check out Tokyo-based Atelier Bow-Wow’s installation at REDCAT. Made of recycled wood, the exhibition consists of three contraptions based on the famous Case Study Houses. It includes The BBQ House, (above), a Hammock House, and a Sunset House.
Part light and space (like Turrell, Eliasson or R. Irwin), part relational aesthetics and also an architectural experiment, these pieces are big, fun and worth seeing in person. Here’s hoping that they end up in a park or some other public space after the exhibition ends on March 29.
