Room for a city

Rome, 2016. Enter today from their smartphone to an application that allows you in real time to rent a car in car-sharing has become an daily action and routine, especially in a city like Rome, where traffic and shortage of parking facilities a choice like that. Why, then, can there be a difference for the room of a hotel? The proposed project aims at the ease with which the means of transport and communication now allow us to be more connected with the rest of the world: now not only have changed the concepts of space and time, but many other situations that only a decade ago there seemed unthinkable, they have now become absolutely routine daily actions; the same way to travel, as well as his reasons (leisure, work, adventure …) have changed greatly over time, and with it also the place where you stay during our trips. Today more than ever we’re looking for the best accommodation in the center, well connected to infrastructure, mobility services and daily life (bars, restaurants, shops, but also laundries, pharmacies …), or a hotel near the cultural centers and the major monuments; then think of the possibility of “sleeping” (and more!) in front of the Colosseum, rather than on top of the Palatine Hill, in Monte Mario or why not on the Belvedere del Pincio, Villa Pamphili or Piazza Venezia: three types of rooms – modules K – prefabricated, self-sufficient from an energy standpoint, can be placed and removed at any place with facility. The essential idea is to create a kind of ubiquitous hotel, a network of small rooms in the most beautiful and characteristic place of a city, a very low environmental impact, fully mobile and bonding for most combinations (individual or village) that can offer a ‘experience quite different to those who, for whatever reason, is to stay in a city. This is supported by a simple app – like Car2Go- that allows you to book a room available at the place you like, close to the center and surrounded by nature, a few steps from the metro rather than in front of a historical monument! Look for, click, book and go to sleep, four actions that are normal but which are seen in the perspective of “sharing”, to share these spaces immersed in our contemporary cities, not like the rooms of a hotel (which aim instead to a feeling similar to the “feel at home”) but rather to a sort of camping in the city but in a luxurious room! This project is meant to be a game, a provocation to those who are today our fees in choosing a hotel room or the hotel itself, distorting the idea of individual living a city, instead looking for the feeling of the community, the share and of opening towards what is now a society that tends more and more to the isolation of the individual.
