The Revolutionary Shelf Hotel Allows for Future Construction

The Shelf Hotel design proposal is a revolutionary design concept that would allow developers to build different types of buildings in the future on the shelf-like levels. This means that buildings could be destroyed or built later without having to tear down the entire structure. This makes for a more adaptable system that can evolve as the needs of people do.

The Shelf Hotel idea was pitched by Chinese architecture firm 3GATTI to be built in Xian, China. The middle of the building features a large outdoor garden space, which makes the project eco-friendly too. This project really checks all the boxes.

This structure will be able to stand the test of time while also being able to change and adapt as society does. Let's hope the project gets the green light. Stats for Bookshelf-Inspired Buildings Trending: Older & Mild
