About the Exhibition

This exhibit was first presented at the prestigious Biennale di Venezia 2012, a major invitation-only contemporary art exhibition in Venice, Italy. Sculptural representations of five architectural Masters: Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson make up the exhibit. The exhibit is a series of ?dialogues? with these five American masters whom Ms. Mori was asked to work next to, in addition to, or in reference to their creations. These cross-sections, called ?totems,? represent an architectural detail of the master’s structure and a similar detail Ms. Mori used in her own design on or near the original structure. This was the first time the exhibit had been on display in the U.S. Toshiko Mori has a distinguished background in both the practice of architecture and academia.15-0916-wall-text_SMALL2

In her lecture’s introduction, Ms. Mori explained the title of her exhibit, ?Dialogue in Details.? It describes unique projects that she was asked to do alongside the design of five of the world’s master architects. Her goal was to design them to respect and complement the work of the existing structure, be it Paul Rudolph, Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, Mies van der Rohe or Marcel Breuer, while incorporating her own conceptual approach. In each case, she identified one particularly interesting building section of the existing work as a model and then incorporated the same section into her new design. In the exhibit, first displayed by invitation at the 2012 Venice Biennial International Arts Exhibition, her goal was to illustrate that sometimes buildings are in a ?dialogue? with each other, and as a result, the two stand together in reference and harmony with each other. Mori’s lecture also included slides and descriptions of some of her other exceptional work, including a fascinating cultural center she recently completed in a rural village in Senegal ? commissioned by the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation ? which features local materials and local builders to give shape to an artist residency that is also a hub for the local community.

In 2000, Ed and Betsy Cohen, owners of the Paul Rudolph-designed Burkhardt/Cohen home on Casey Key, asked Ms. Mori (they had already been acquainted) to update the property for them.  Over the course of several years she updated the Rudolph House and built two additional buildings on the exquisitely scenic property to accommodate visits from their family and friends.  Close to 100 members attended the tour, where Ms. Mori discussed how the projects evolved and how she approached the design process for the clients, the location and respect for Rudolph.  The newer buildings sit very gracefully on the property alongside the Rudolph house in perfect harmony.  This property is listed in The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture of 1,000 of the most outstanding works of architecture in the world. Mori also acknowledged the invaluable services of Michael K. Walker, who was general contractor for the projects and is also a CFAS Board Member.
