The first monographic issue dedicated to Toshiko Mori, a Japanese architect based in New York. Since founding her practice in 1981, Mori has become recognised for her unique design approach, keen eye for detail, and works that reflect a sensitive integration of design, materials, and technology with the site. For Mori, teaching goes in parallel with practice, and her essay in this issue illustrates several initiatives she introduced as a faculty member over the years. Featuring eighteen works built since 2000, including the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Peter Freeman Gallery, 277 Mott Street, and the Watson Institute at Brown University, as well as nine private residences.
