Hotel for DeviantDreamers?
Ever wondered what a hotel designed by the artists of DevianArt might look like? Probably something like the new Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, one of Beijing, China’s many newly constructed state-of-the-art luxury lodgings.
Imagine this: Spanning 18,075 square meters, the exterior glass surface is covered by more than 10,000 glass panels. The panels are angled so that the top portion of the building reflects the color of the sky, the middle reflects nearby Yanshan Mountain and the bottom section reflects the lake. At night, the hotel is lit up by hydroelectric-powered LED lights.
Glass panels on the Kempinski Sunrise Hotel reflect the nearby mountains, sky and lake.
The question is whether all these fancy new hotels, in and of themselves, will be tourist attractions enough to bring in visitors from all over the world. The repressive Chinese government is gambling that the world’s travelers will be so dazzled by these beautiful gateways into China that they won’t bother so much with venturing too far within the country’s troubled interior, where the depredations of high velocity modernization are taking a toll on the citizenry.
Most importantly, what would your DeviantArt Hotel look like?
