Here’s a refreshing concept in the design of green hotels: Treat the interior spaces as greenhouses and grow your own fresh air. If properly planned and implemented, the idea sounds like a no brainer, and it's been gaining momentum. The concept of a “Green Air Hotel” was this year’s winner of the Radical Innovation Awards hosted this month at the Hospitality Design Expo in Las Vegas.
The Radical Innovation Awards, now in its 9th year, was created by The John Hardy Group, a hotel development and construction management consulting firm. All designers love a competition, and this one pushes the envelope in the quest for the next big thing in hotel design. Two finalists make their case live at the Expo and, in classic reality show format, the guests vote for the winner.
Wow, where shall we begin? What we are looking at is not a confirmed hotel project, but the way things are going, it could be. This design, created by Hong Kong based architectural and interior design firm of Ova Studio was one of the professional entries in the 8th annual Radical Innovation Awards competition.
This proposed hotel design did not make it to the finals of the competition, but it is radical even to us, and we like to think we've seen it all. We're sharing it with you because it is so off the wall -- literally.
The winners of the competition will be announced live next month at the Hospitality Design Expo in Las Vegas, which we will excitedly cover with eyes wide open.
