Tokyo's Hotel Okura to Be Redesigned by Original Architect's Son
A design dynasty.
The iconic and historic Okura Hotel, originally opened for Tokyo’s hosting of the 1964 Olympic games is to be demolished this week. It is to be re-designed and remodeled by Yoshio Taniguchi, the son of original lead architect Yoshiro Taniguchi and a successful designer in his own right. Check out the renderings above for an insight into the clean, minimalist approach that Taniguchi, Jr. will bring to this massive project and details of his father’s original hotel.
