10 ArchDaily Projects That You Can Book Through Airbnb

ArchDaily and Airbnb were both founded in 2008, but for two very different reasons. Since then, ArchDaily has amassed a vast database of tens of thousands of buildings, located in cities and countries all around the world. Meanwhile, Airbnb has revolutionized the way in which we explore these countries, and use these buildings, even if just for one night.

While architecture lovers have occasionally been offered very limited experiences through Airbnb, such as a one-night stay on the Great Wall of China, or an architectural tour of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Stadium courtesy of Kengo Kuma, it transpires that Airbnb’s listings contain some notable architectural gems available for regular booking.

TDA House / Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Located in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, and constructed in 2006, the TDA House is defined by its pronounced cantilever, covering a pleasant, central, “constructed exterior space” which is both protected by the balance and rigor of the constructed object, and supplied with light, water, and air, tropical vegetation and colors that contrast with the neutrality of the concrete.”
