Comment from The Red Vic's Sami's Interview

Buy my work

Drug smoking driving has been controversy nowadays but I think we need to think more about the trend and society that people want to change like back in 70s. I just thought about it from her story. 
It has been a dream to stay at the hotel and talk with other guest at the breakfast. 
The design of the hotel room has a Art and Crafts feel but in a hippy version to it, and used to be like one of its kind, and love it.

He made a contract to build the new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in late 1911. After a year of project delays and several trans-Pacific crossings, Wright finally took up part-time residence in Tokyo in January 1917. (Wrightian Architectural Archives Japan)

In 1918, Wright made a design plan for a second house for Tazaemon Yamamura who was the eighth-generation brewer of the famous sake “Sakuramasamurne,” in Nada (near Kobe.) It took a while …
