U.S. Embassy (Project)     Tokyo, 1914

While Wright was visiting Tokyo in 1913, he began a design for a new American Embassy. After receiving written instructions from embassy staff regarding additional layout needs, Wright completed a perspective and floor plans at Taliesin in 1914.

Essentially the modification of a residential design he had prepared for a Canadian client, Wright's embassy included symmetrical wings with the ambassador's residence in the center, overlooking a courtyard.

The embassy was not built.  (KS)
