Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel is the latest Lego Architecture set

Lego1

The latest Lego Architecture set goes for something obscure, but undeniably cool - Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel.

This was a 250-room hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright from 1916-1922, bridging the divide between the Western and Eastern worlds. It didn't last though, despite being built to withstand Japanese earthquakes. General decay resulted in demolition in the late ’60s, with just part of the building surviving in the Meiji Museum in Nogoya, Japan.

But you can rebuild it in Lego, which replicates all the distinctive features of the original construction on a 28 x 24 x 10cm model. You also get a booklet with details on the design and history.

The one downside is the price. The Architecture sets are never cheap and this one is no exception at £99.99.
