By its dictionary definition, a hotel is ‘an establishment providing accommodation, meals, and other services for travellers and tourists. This is a basic idea and perception of what a hotel is at the present. However, the competition encourages participants to debate the course of hospitality in the future or as we can put it: ‘What can a hotel be?” The aim of this competition is to question the very notion of a hotel and confront the stereotypes and conventions of this building typology. The competition encourages the participants to explore new possibilities and come up with innovative and unorthodox solutions that can enhance and change the boundaries of hotel architecture.
