The egg shape is definitely a shape that is seen a lot both in nature and in architecture. This design comes from the proposition for the Envision Green Hotel by Michael Rosenthal Associates. When this urban green-resort and wind power station is laid, it will be a landmark for the city.
Implications - The Envision Green Hotel will be made to operate like a "living organism" because of the way it uses the elements of nature to fuel it. Natural outdoor air is able to pass through the building without the need for "mechanical intervention." There will be indoor gardens within the building that will create "mini-microclimates that filter the air and act as added insulation."
