Hotels have developed their common spaces by opening their lobbies to include, for example, bars, cafeterias, and coworking spaces. Hotel rooms have instead evolved much less; they remain a shrine to decoration surrounding an immovable bed. But isn’t this a good time to transform them, to adapt them to our domestic state in a world where flows are only increasing?

Hotels, situated at the center of many flows and intersections, can thus also become key members of a circular economy.
