Frank Lloyd Wright in Tokyo

I was in Tokyo recently and came across a small school designed by iconic American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan a school that was started as a junior/senior school for girls in 1921. Although the school has since moved, the building is still used and was fairly recently renovated.

So far as I know, it is the only complete FLW building in Tokyo. It was built at the same time as the Imperial Hotel.

One thought on “Frank Lloyd Wright in Tokyo

  1. Alistair…my word that man was good at what he did…beautiful and ageless. Strange bloke but an amazing designer.
