1433. Hotel DU LAC. Tunis
















Dear Louis,

This hotel building is been said to serve as the inpiration for
the sandcrawlers used by the jawas in the movie Star Wars
Episode IV, A New Hope that largely took place in Tunisia.
Nonetheless, the architect of this building, that it is now under
threat of demolition, was inspired by the Italian Pavilion at the
1954 Zagreb Fair.

Love,
R
