Fictional Narratives: Architectural Dialogues with the Past and Communities

Acclaimed Japanese-American architect and former chair of architecture at Harvard University GSD, Toshiki Mori has built a career on technical research, experimental design, and pedagogical practice. In this new short video from the Time-Space-Existence series, Mori (b. 1951) 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.

Produced by PLANE—SITE, the video was commissioned by the GAA Foundation with the support of the ECC in the run-up to the Time-Space-Existence exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia Architettura (opening May 2018).

Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, this video series features interviews with prominent architects reflecting on the topics of TIME SPACE EXISTENCE.
