EVERYWHERE—Tokyo's second Imperial Hotel, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and constructed from 1915 to 1923, is the latest offering in Lego's Architecture series. The H-shaped building, consisting of concrete and carved stone, was commissioned to replace the original wooden version; sadly, Wright's iteration was damaged in The Great Japan Earthquake of 1923 and was demolished a few decades later. Now there's a high-rise hotel on the site. [Euro Bricks via Gizmodo]
