*sorry for that bad translation we asked google for help and this is the answer
What is a hotel? The first, in researching, displaying definition reads as follows: “a house where guests can stay for a fee.”
This simple and stripped down to the basics of meaning description we use now taking stock of the present situation over. The hotel first and often forms the image of pomp and preciousness. Edler comfort, full- time service and a huge range of additional services to optimize the quality of stay. The paying guest is admitted, so that his personal contribution may be negated every amenity possible.
This is based on one of our opinion, Antiquaren picture of a hotel. Because it is the question of the price you pay and here we are not thinking about the currency capitalist system of values, but rather that of the liberal People! If all questions are answered before they are even asked the first who still asks then? Is it really the desire to the leave of his payment information also delivering any responsibility for the design and self-determination at the reception?
No, we say, for the highest good of man is his freedom!
We want a place of work is not financially selected on which you do not live in identical reproductions of seemingly optimal hotel room. A place affordable nights can come about and class systems cancels. The guests maximum design possibilities are, but not demand. The each have the same basic requirement manages to produce a maximum torque liberal. The campsite works as a metaphor for what has been described. In its origins, the levelness. take up this approach and to put in the urban context is our goal.
Let us now examine urban areas for potential places to such an idea can manifest, we discover the programmatic openness of the parking garage. Free of selection it allows almost unrestricted, public accessibility. The typology of the parking garage is initially undefined, only determined by a grid, space available, which can be filled independently from the State territorial claim. Only by the user to display its function, which is the idea due, exclusively reserved for the parking of vehicles. The existence of gray areas we use to establish at this point more possibilities of usage. form The park in its urban incumbency and camping in its egalitarian structure interconnected our, of the freedom of man devoted, presentation of a hotel from. Characterized by an anarchist moment, we manifest this in our design and create an antithesis to traditional hotel structures through which we create an impulse to rethink.
Our design consists of the formal structure of a conventional parking garage, only a complementary washrooms. In the function, however, we start with the classic, one-sided idea. The parcels defined are awarded independent in their use and are not intended for the parking of a vehicle. It is now possible with a camper, tent or merely his place to occupy a hammock, where also the parking of vehicles is not excluded. We will not pay on location, use or scope of the occupation, but in the classical park system to stay time. Thus a fair and convenient place to stay is guaranteed, which is accessible to every man. By slimming of the building and the east-west exposure enough light and fresh air supply is guaranteed. The car park is surrounded by a large structure, which covers the needs and interests of users.
A place for our building only has enough space, provide easy access to the city center, and close to a highway available.
