Some architects, like Peter Eisenman or Fred Schwartz, you could picture in the Bronx. But not Toshiko Mori with her pristine, elegant boxes. However, here she is with a clean box for the Bronx. From Architect’s Newspaper:
“I read a lot of Poe’s work and there seemed to be two distinct halves to his writing,” [Toshiko] Mori told AN. “One half is a kind of forerunner of science fiction, very dreamy and about the future, and the other half is grotesque.” While the cottage represents the past, she said, the visitor’s center, which will also serve as a community gathering place, will reflect Poe’s relevance to the present and future.
