Summary Looks at the six years that American architect Frank Lloyd Wright spent in Japan seeking refuge from public condemnation at home. Shows Wright's fascination with Japan and the influence of Japanese aesthetics on his work. Examines his work on the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, an enormous commission that helped turn his career around, as well as other buildings that he designed and built in Japan, including several houses and a school. Also explores Wright's influence on Japan and the careers and work of his Japanese apprentices and emulators.
