WAC editor-in-chief Berrin Chatzi Chousein in conversation with Japanese architect Toshiko Mori, founder and principal of New York-based studio Toshiko Mori Architect. WAC's live talk focuses on the notion of innovation, a sense of belonging and their interrelationships within the projects' geographical context and wider perspective. 

Taking active roles both in practice and academia, Toshiko Mori is also the Robert P. Hubbard Professor in the Practice of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD), where she served as chair of the Department of Architecture from 2002 to 2008. Mori's teaching philosophy is deeply translated into her architectural practice where the detailed knowledge of materials,  applications, methods and production techniques are converged on her innovative architecture.
