“The Pop-Up Hotel is designed to be a means of urban revitalization, an economic catalyst, as well as an active community partner. We strongly believe the Pop-Up Hotel to be a transformative experience for both the building and more importantly, the hotel guests.”
The architects have designed the Pop-Up Hotel in such a way that different modules of the system can be ordered like meals on a restaurant menu. This enables clients to create the hotel they want, varying from a hang-out for backpackers to luxury suites. Every part of the Pop-Up Hotel can be easily packed and shipped on site using special containers. Each of these ‘boxes’ is identified with a unique RFID tag that allows for easy tracking and set-up.
We’re not the only people who are curious to see this idea being brought into practice — the Pop-Up Hotel recently won the first prize in Radical Innovations in Hospitality, a competition that invited designers to come up with ideas for the next big hotel concept.
