Invisible Hotel/ Transparent City in Athens, Greece by blp architects

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: blp architects

Invisibility is essentially a question of transparency.

In 1963 Colin Rowe in his article Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal set the framework: \”At the beginning of any inquiry into transparency, a basic distinction must perhaps be established. Transparency may be an inherent quality of substance- as in a wire mesh or glass curtain wall, or it may be an inherent quality of organization\”. As an organization quality \”transparency means a simultaneous perception of different spatial locations\”.

The North Slope Ski Hotel by Michael Jantzen

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The North Slope Ski Hotel is a conceptual design proposal (in search of a client) for an eco-friendly ninety five room luxury hotel, which is powered primarily by the wind and by the sun. Eight large vertical axis wind turbines are mounted on the top of the hotel, and a very large array of flexible photovoltaic cells cover the lower south facing curved portion of the structure. These wind turbines and solar cells are used to supply most of the hotels electrical needs.

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The Solar Winds Desert Hotel is a conceptual design for a large (140 room) luxury eco hotel powered by the sun and the wind. The design symbolically evolved from thoughts about certain desert plants and how they function in a hot dry climate. The symbolic leaves of the Solar Winds Desert Hotel would shade various facilities at the base such as restaurants, a gym, a pool, a spa, retail spaces, offices, etc.

GUANAHANI HOTEL & SPA in ST BARTH, FRENCH WEST INDIES by LUIS PONS DESIGN LAB

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: LUIS PONS DESIGN LAB

The spirit of the Guanahani design can be defined as a spontaneous gesture of courtesy: A hug and removal of a hat off a head. Guanahani means Welcome in the Arawak language; it was the first word spoken by the natives as Spanish people arrived to America.  A hat is an iconic piece that is associated to the outdoors; it offers protection to the head as the roofs provide shelter to a house. A Panama hat represents elegant, sophistication, lightness, flexibility, exquisite craftsmanship and beauty. A Panama hat is a perfect integration of form and function.
