    IMMERSIVE ARCHITECTURE
    Project: Design Media Arts at UCLA
    THE ICE HOTEL, JUKKASJÄRVI, SWEDEN

    The ICE HOTEL is the modern version of an igloo. The hotel is built using ice from the close by Torne River and because it melts in spring, is rebuilt every winter. The architecture and design of the hotel is different each year. Artists, designers and architects from all over the globe take part in the realization of the project.

    HOTELL HACKSPETT (HOTEL WOODPECKER) & UTTER INN (OTTER INN)
    VÄSTERÅS, SWEDEN

    Designed by artist Mikael Genberg as alternative livingspaces. Formally the architecture is basic (Sweden is known for its red and white cabins and the size is the largest a privat person is allowed to buils without a permit), but the location of the hotels are interesting. Hotell Hackspett is placed 13 meters above ground in the tallest oak in the city park. Otter inn can be found in lake Mälaren, about 1 kilometer outside the city harbor. The sleeping comprtment of otter inn is below the water surface with windows in all directions, with a view of the murky waters and its inhabitants.

    THE YURT

    The Yurt must be the ultimate tent experience, with only a thin piece of fabric separating you from the surrounding nature. Wool is a fantastic material; warm + moisture & dirt repellent.
