The DROP Eco Hotel: Sane and Rational or Barmy?

DROP Eco Hotel

The DROP Eco-Hotel is an ultra-mobile prefab dwelling developed by In-Tenta for a contest organized by Urban Square, O-Cults, and Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura. The mobile hotel room draws inspiration from organic shapes found in nature, and it can be installed on a variety of terrains. The DROP Eco-Hotel is designed to be elevated above the earth (so it leaves a light footprint), and it features spherical transparent windows that can be completely opened to bring guests into direct contact with nature.

Who would have thought something green, could be so cool…

would you consider a break in one of these?

They certainly appear feature packed and can be placed, well just about anywhere according to the designers.

Given the multitude of barmy and sometimes outright whacky efforts to produce environmentally friendly accommodation this in my humble opinion surely has to rank at the more sane and rational end of the scale.

So here we have actual proof that not all environmentalists are lunatics, extremists or just plain loopy.

The big question is how much will the DROP Eco Hotel cost? Time will tell I’m sure but hopefully they won’t cost the earth.. I wonder as it seems the words environmentally friendly or any one of the many variations on the general theme of environmentalism seem to be basically a set of code words for whatever the product is being ridiculously expensive or just plain and blatantly overpriced.

Obviously it goes without saying I wish those responsible for this creation the very best of luck In the future. Read the rest of this entry
