Japanese Ho-o-Den « previous 14 of 18 next »

This picture shows the display commissioned by Mikado, the Emperor of Japan. The building is a replica of the Ho-o-den, a famous temple near Kyoto, Japan. Ho-o-den means house made like the Phoenix (a bird). Frank Lloyd Wright visited the fair when he was young. It would be the first time he saw Japanese architecture and art, which would greatly influence his work in the next century.
