Shimpei Goto House (Project)     Tokyo, 1921

Wright did preliminary sketches of a two-story home for Baron Shimpei Goto, Tokyo's governor at the time. They demonstrate a remarkable adaptation of the Prairie style to an official residence, with a suitable formality of design and government scaling.

The design features a large reception hall on the ground floor, with a loggia from which guests could view the extensive garden.

The Goto residence was never built.  (KS)
