Frank Lloyd Wright's Imperial Hotel: Remnants

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 18 May 2010 in Architecture.

Off to one side of the building, there's a sort of 'graveyard' of bits of masonry that were recovered from the hotel when it was demolished. These original pieces are left exposed to the elements, where they are clearly eroding away. It was interesting to see what was happening to these pieces that weren't being preserved, and also fascinating to imagine just where they fit into the hotel in it's original, intact state.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

What an amazing experience it must be to see this stuff and think of the parts they played. Strangely moving, really.
