Raymond, Antonin

Raymond, Antonin
born May 10, 1888, Kladno, Bohemia
died Nov. 21, 1976, Langhorne, Pa., U.S.

Czech-born U.S. architect.

He immigrated to the U.S. in 1910. He assisted Frank Lloyd Wright in building the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo (1916). Remaining in Japan, he and his partner, Ladislav Rado, built numerous structures, mostly for Americans. One of the few Modernist architects working in Japan at the time, he influenced such Japanese architects as Yoshimura Junzo and Maekawa Kunio. Among his works were the Reader's Digest Building, Tokyo (1951; since destroyed), and the Nagoya International School (opened 1967), a circular structure serving a flexible, progressive educational program.
