Tokyo's Imperial Hotel
Meant to signal Japan’s modernity by displaying its ties to the West, Wright was hired to create a hybrid of Japanese and Western architecture. The hotel, constructed of concrete and Oya (a gray-green lava stone), had an extensive decorative scheme, facilitated by the abundance of skilled carvers. The strikingly symmetrical complex was built in a Mayan Revival style, drawing inspiration from the architecture and iconography of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures.
Each purchase supports the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s mission to inspire people to discover and embrace an architecture for better living through meaningful connections to nature, the arts, and each other.
