House in Ghent by Toshiko Mori Architect, New York, USA

Celebrating invention and authenticity, the AR presents a snapshot of work in progress from around the world

Breaking down the programme of a weekend house into five constituent pavilions, architect Toshiko Mori proposes a settlement thatdramatises the relationship between building and landscape.

Perched on an outcrop of rocks overlooking the River Hudson, each element is linked by an elevated concrete walkway. Mori describes how each of the five pavilions is ‘a subtle iteration of the archetypal glass box paradigm’, with core functions centralised to provide as much free plan as possible. The pavilions contain the main house, a guesthouse and exercise space.
