Abstract

Very little is known of the inception and building of Frank Lloyd Wright's Imperial Hotel beyond Wright's autobiography first published in 1932. This article addresses such fundamental concerns as the date when Wright first heard of the project and how and when he received the commission; where the building was to be located and in what context; when the drawings were executed; what the projected schedule was; the delays, and their consequences; when and how Wright traveled to Japan and how much time he spent there; when the Annex was built; and under what circumstances the building was completed.
