HOUSE OF TOMORROW
Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan| 自由学園明日館

Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan was built in 1921 as the main building of a private all-girls’ school established by publishers Motoko and Yoshikazu Hani. Designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, his prairie-style architecture is implemented here to create a warm, domestic learning environment with basic materials of wood and plaster, large windows, and low, approachable structure.
