First Friday
Toshiko Mori Architect

Join Toshiko Mori Architect at its office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at recent and upcoming projects. This program is part of First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.

For over thirty years, Toshiko Mori Architect has designed a diverse body of projects that creatively address ecologically sensitive siting strategies, historical context, and innovative use of materials. The firm, led by Toshiko Mori, has worked on a broad programmatic range, including urban, civic, institutional, cultural, residential, museum, and exhibition design. Recent work includes New York City theater, library, and museum projects, the Hudson Yard Park and Boulevard, and a park visitor center in the Bronx. The office has designed major institutional projects for Brown University and Syracuse University, and is included on the design team for New York University’s strategic master plan.  The firm was selected twice for the New York City’s Department of Design and Construction’s Design and Construction Excellence program, and won four competitions for the program’s public and urban infrastructure projects.  Toshiko Mori Architect was also recently selected as the architect of a laboratory building for Novartis’ extended Cambridge campus.
