Concept for a hotel which claims a public space in front of it.
Hotel is situated in a business district. The facade acts as an entertainment screen with the inclusion of Illumesh which is able to project images. The plane in front of it is activated by means of festivals, markets, public debates. Privitised hotel internally, public actor externally.
The hotel itself is a sort of liminal space between this public and public realm. Just as the act of being of a hotel can be an extension of a liminal act...from one destination to another.
