The Hotel ShabbyShabby is an experiment of sorts that explores recycling discards around the city for the use of legitimate accommodations. With a few strict parameters, which include the necessity of locks, weather resistance and the ability to be built in just seven days, participating designers can do just about anything they want when creating one of 20 rooms for Hotel ShabbyShabby.

The competition for Hotel ShabbyShabby was put together by architectural practice Raumlabor. Set to be built during Theater Der Welt, the city’s celebrated international theater festival, the rooms will be judged by artist Gilly Karjevsky from 72 Hour Urban Action and Pedro Gadanho, the curator for contemporary architecture at the MoMA in New York.
