This German hotel was built to look like a couple engaged in behavior that's generally reserved for the bedroom.

Titled 'Domestikator,' the hotel is a temporary installation built for the Ruhrtriennale festival in Bochum, Germany. The unusual edifice doubles as functional accommodations for the festival's VIPs. Apparently, the aim of the German hotel's architects was to express humanity's powerful relationship with nature through the building's surprising configuration.

The scandalous hotel is part of a bigger design series called 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' at the Ruhrtriennale festival, which showcases theater, music and arts. According to the design firm responsible for the German hotel, public responses to the project have been warm and positive in the town of Bochum.
