bureau0-1 was founded in 2014 as a practice for architecture, urban design and projective design and research, based in Tokyo and New York.
bureau0-1 does not solve problems. Rather, it asks questions.
bureau0-1 is neither easily understood nor ineffable. It is against cheap one-liners and unrealizable dogmas.
bureau0-1 is comprised of few, thus far. As such, bureau0-1 is neither a particularly agile technician nor an insightful specialist.
bureau0-1 places more importance on depth over width, breadth over speed. If it appears to move at the snail's speed, it is because it will not follow the blinding speed of Capitalism.
bureau0-1 is concerned with architecture in its holistic sense of overarching cultural production. As such, it will opportunistically engaged with anything from a book to a building.
bureau0-1 has a singular guiding principle of discovering our zeitgeist and from that imagining possible futures in various forms; form-spaces, information, and transformations. We aspire to occupy neither the saturated tradition of the past nor the naive futurism apt for its inevitable downfall, but a new and real vision of the near future, based on the present milieu.

bureau0-1は、国境や社会の垣根、現存する固定概念や価値評価の基準に捉われないアーキテクチャー、都市やスペキュラティヴ・デザインなどを創造・想像する為に始められたプラクティス(鍛錬の場)です。
bureau0-1の「bureau」とは、一卓の書き物机または官省局を意味します。これから創造・想像してゆくもののスケールの幅を彷彿させる意味もありますが、現状の作業机一卓から始まるこのプラクティスをゆくゆくはポリシーに影響を及ぼすものにしたいという意志が込められています。「0-1」は、無から有を生み出すことです。「0」という記号には、Futurismのように歴史を軽視した意図はなく、歴史や文脈を鑑みつつもいままでに無い新しいプロトタイプを創造するという意味が含まれています。
元来、アーキテクチャーには多面的な意味が内包されていました。ひとつの職種を示す言葉ではなく、文化、社会、芸術、工学から哲学など様々な分野を横断する思考そのものを指す言葉だったのですその構成要素や意味が分解し専業化された現在において、「archetype」つまり原型の状態に遡る必要はありません。そうではなく、二十一世紀に必要とされている新しい社会の在り方と文化創造を新しい思考で提案していくことが重要ですその目的の為には、出版から建築、研究や実践を問わず、現代の精神を探り、多種多様な形で顕していきたいと思います。
