Art Hotel
The Art hotel it is a concept hotel not intended for a specific location but for different cities in the world. It looks at social technologies and new way of communications to create the urban experience. It draws inspiration from the Tower of Babel, the symbolic spiral tower of communication. The glass curtain wall is covered by a spiraling strip in perforated aluminum that provides shade in the rooms of the hotel while maintaining the outdoor views. The metal strip becomes an interactive hyper-textual skin with LEDs during nighttime. Guests input their thoughts ideas and feeling by the reception desk. The spiral becomes a luminous changing skin of languages and thoughts.
