This incredible Tanzania hotel design by WOW Architects is called the 'House of Peace.' Its architecture is inspired by rock formations and is meant to evoke all aspects of geology, from mounding to erosion, stratification and fossilization.

The Tanzania 'House of Peace' hotel is comprised of two mound-inspired buildings with living green walls and window-mounted gardens that mimic moss and other foliage tucked in the crevices of a mountainside. Glass-paneled corridors will give travelers a sense of walking out into the light, as they might after exploring a cave.
