Frank Lloyd Wright and the Architecture of Unity
by Cary James
Rutland: Charles E. Tuttle, 1968. "The Imperial was the place to go in Tokyo, it has been written. 'No traveler could say he had been in Japan unless he had the prestigious Imperial sticker on his suitcase.' Although the hotel continues to be one of the finest in Tokyo, contemporary pressures have destroyed its most famous building, the one designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Imperial, begun in 1917, finished in 1922 and demolished in 1968, stood as one of Tokyo's chief landmarks."
