Discipline the City Series
Issue 05 - Thermotropics


Author: Atelier HOKO

1. the turning or bending of a plant or other organism
in response to a directional source of heat."

Thermotropics continues the Chapbook series's unpacking of ideas of discipline and space through the lens of adaptive behaviours that bodies living in the tropics develop. The book features text and images by Atelier HOKO, and explores the mundane, almost unthinking, actions which suggest an array of complex yet subtle intentions to regulate one’s temperature while maintaining public decorum. 

The book features photos and illustrations by Atelier HOKO (Habicat, Science of the Secondary).
