Okura Hotel: saving an icon

The iconic Okura Hotel, a 1962 Japanese modernist masterpiece designed by a team that included architects Yoshiro Taniguchi and Hideo Kosaka, is scheduled to be torn down in August 2015, to make way for a 38-storey glass tower. Let’s sign the petition started by Monocle Magazine to save it!
