Step through a story within a story.

Thought-Built: The Imperial Hotel at 100 offers a rare look at this lost work through original architectural elements rescued from demolition, including tiles, bricks, Ōya stone blocks, and an art  glass window, as well as a deeper understanding of Wright’s relationship with the Martins during this formative period in his career.
