Acclaimed Japanese architect and former chair of architecture at Harvard University GSD, Toshiko Mori has built a career on technical research, experimental design, and pedagogical practice. In this video from the Time-Space-Existence series, Mori discusses the importance of drawing as a visual mode of communication and how to engage the past in architectural dialogue. Through what she calls in the video her “fictional narratives”, Mori engages with the masters that have come before her.
The Time-Space-Existence video series has already featured both prominent and emerging architects including Denise Scott Brown, Peter Eisenman, Meinhard von Gerkan, WOHA Architects, Curtis Fentress, Dirk Hebel, Arata Isozaki and others. The series will be exhibited in Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora, and distributed digitally to the media and press. At least one video will be released each month in the run up to the opening of the exhibition.
This interview series has been made possible with the support of the European Cultural Centre.
