Archistart, continuing the focus on tourism themes, promotes Floating Room Competition, a contest aimed at imagining an experimental architecture, a floating Hotel Room, a privileged point of view and a new link with the landscape or the urban context.
The competition requires designing a double/twin “special room” with restroom, imagining it to be placed on natural or artificial water bodies, like Lake Iseo or La Darsena (Milan’s city dock) – by way of example. The proposals will be evaluated considering the relationship with the context and the architectural innovation level.
The architectural volume should have a maximum size of 25sq meters and a maximum height of 5 m, based on a platform of maximum 30sq meters. The room should be provided with a sleeping accommodation for 2 people, a restroom/wellness
area and any possible special spaces.
Participants are free to choose the materials and the space distribution, both in plan and elevation.
