Futuristic design combines travel and hotel stays
Whether it is apartment buildings made up of custom, 3D-printed pods, or a pop-up hotel, architects have been working to revolutionize the hotel experience. Now, Brandan Siebrecht, a graduate architecture student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas has devised a futuristic way to combine a hotel stay with travel. Siebrecht’s design for what he calls the ‘Hyperloop Hotel’ was one of two student finalists in the 2017 Radical Innovation Award, a yearly competition for imaginative hotel designs. Siebrecht’s concept links hotels in 13 cities, including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Austin, Chicago, and Washington, DC, with a futuristic system of transport via a type of giant pneumatic tube. Guests would stay in modular ‘pods’ that could be loaded onto the transportation system and whisked between cities at supersonic speeds, then slotted into a hotel in the next city.
