Sleeping: Alternative Hotel Design

Sleeping: Alternative Hotel Design
Sleeping: Alternative Hotel Design, Official Cover Non Architecture Competitions
Official Cover Non Architecture Competitions

The aim of the Sleeping competition is to develop design proposals for the hotel typology – a place to sleep. It is asked to the participants to create innovative and unconventional projects on this theme, questioning the very basis of the notion of hotel. Recently many initiatives, such as Airbnb and Couch-surfing, have been proposing new interpretations of the function of hotels, developing extremely successful business models. With similar creative attitude the participants are urged to create an artefact, merging considerable programmatic innovation and valuable design tools. The proposal can be a device, a piece of furniture, an interior design project, a pavilion, a building or a urban plan. Scale of intervention, program dimensions and location are not given and they can be arranged by the participants to better suit their project.

Non architecture competitions wants to be unconventional also in the way it rewards its participants. The winners will be in fact three, all equally important. In addition 12 honourable mentions will be awarded. Each one of the 3 jury members will select one winner and four honourable mentions.
The prizes are the following:
