本酒店设计的立意是表达、同时又挑战这种趋势。设计企图表达“异托邦”更具有感召力的方面,即它具有的潜在的开放性和想象力;同时设计也试图对抗和弥补酒店建筑的“非场所”的无质量和空洞化。本设计引入一个高浓度的视觉文化,建立一个“酒店画廊”,以达到这个双向目的;在此酒店,造访者将体验多种的丰富的视觉观赏,获得高浓度的记忆和体验质量,如论客人的造访是如何的短暂和瞬息即逝。

The intention of this hotel is to both refl ect and to counter this trend. It aims to refl ect a more inspiring aspect of heterotopia, namely a sense of openness and imagination; at the same time, it also aims to counter the emptiness or the ‘non-place’ of this typology. The design aims to do both by introducing an intensifi ed visual culture in this hotel and gallery, where a stay though short and fleeting is saturated and memorable, with inspiring views, of various kinds.
