feature: toshiko mori

The February issue of a+u is our first monograph dedicated to the architectural practice of Toshiko Mori. Based in New York, the Japanese native founded Toshiko Mori Architect (TMA) in 1981. The introductory essay by Fred A. Bernstein, an architecture journalist, demonstrates her design approach and her keen eye for detail. Mori’s works are the result of an in-depth study of the site’s topography, vegetation, and landscape, as pointed out by Edward Eigen, a historian and scholar of European and Anglo-American landscapes in the long nineteenth century. Mori’s designs reflect a sensitive integration of design, materials, and technology with the site. In addition, Sean Kelly, one of Mori’s clients and an art gallery owner, speaks about the process of collaboration with Mori. 18 representative works after 2000, of which 9…

essay: the inevitable architecture of toshiko mori

In her lower Manhattan office, Toshiko Mori is contemplating a house in Taghkanic, New York, that she designed in 2003 (pp. 16–27). The building sits deep in the woods between two promontories. On the uphill side, a “bar” containing bedrooms presses again exposed rock. On the downhill side, a second bar, containing the double-height living and dining rooms, is lifted up on piers, allowing the surface of the rock to flow beneath it, undisturbed. A deck beside the lower volume cantilevers over the cliff, offering treetop views across the Hudson River Valley. It seems appropriate to ask Mori if she would have done the house precisely the same way today. After all, styles in architecture change. What appeared on the pages of architecture magazines sixteen years ago isn’t what appears in…

house in taghkanic

Taghkanic, New York, USA 2003–2008 Built on a 120-acre (50 ha) property of undisturbed forest, the House in Taghkanic is suspended between two large rock outcroppings, overlooking the Hudson River Valley. The house was conceived as perched upon these two rocks at the edge of the cliff, anchoring a bridge with an elevated walkway connecting the two promontories. The bridge is an integral part of the structure of the house, forming a horizontal datum with the public functions below and the private bedrooms above. The house connects paths found naturally on the site, hence, it can be seen as an extension of the existing topographical character of the site. The protracted approach to the house follows a mile-long (1.6 km) meandering path through a dense deciduous forest. The rugged, stony landscape obscures…

New Canaan, Conneticut, USA 2005–2009 The project scope for House in Connecticut II includes a renovation to the original house, a new addition that doubles the square footage, and a renovation to a pool house added in 1976.

Toshiko Mori Architect (TMA)’s new addition is joined to the Breuer residence by a connecting stair enclosed in a glass of varying transparency. The renovation seeks to preserve the spirit of Breuer’s design while updating the space to accommodate the needs of a…
