Imperial Hotel.
130 years of history in Tokyo.
The Imperial Hotel Tokyo.
a story establishment that first graced the Tokyo skyline in 1890.
has long been an emblem of Japanese modernization.
Founded with the vision of meeting societal needs and contributing to society.
it has served
as a national guesthouse for international visitors and a cultural hub for over a century.
Now.
the historic collection of buildings will see a major expansion led by Paris-based firm
Atelier Suyoshi Tane Architects.
Atta’s archaeological approach to design.
In their bold renovation proposal.
Atelier Suyoshi Tane Architects.
Atta.
undertook an
archaeological approach to unearth the layers of history.
topologies.
civilizations.
styles.
ornaments.
spaces.
and materials that have shaped Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel Tokyo.
This deep exploration of the past served as the foundation for the architect’s vision of the
hotel’s future.
where they artfully combine the concepts of a palace for horizontal guest
reception and a tower as a vertical symbol of human evolution.
Through this innovative dialogue.
they seek to reimagine the Imperial Hotel as a fresh
and distinctive guesthouse.
resonating with the spirit of the past while embracing the future.
Embracing the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright.
One of the most iconic aspects of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo is the second main building.
a work designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Atta’s renovation proposal pays homage to this historical gem by reviving the
memory of the second Imperial Hotel.
We are grateful for your viewership.
If you would like to go extra mile and support us with a super thanks.
it would mean world to us.
The team notes that this building was once known as the jewel of the Orient.
blending of east and west as well as the leader of the east nor the west.
This structure embodied the fusion of eastern and western architecture.
serving as a beacon of leadership for both worlds.
In their design philosophy.
Atta champions permanence over novelty.
depth over surface.
presence over lightness.
and diversity over simplicity.
This dedication to the enduring values of the past ensures that the Imperial Hotel Tokyo
will continue to shine as a symbol of cultural and architectural significance.
The hotel opened in 1890.
while Frank Lloyd Wright’s second main building was completed in 1923.
