Yes, We Too Want to See a Mirrored Skyscraper Hotel in the Swiss Alps

March 25, 2015

We like the Swiss Alps. We think they are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, filled with wonderful resorts with classy coffee and treacherous ski runs. Hell, we would go to Zurich right now (not really the Alps, per se, but you get our drift). So we are very much into the creation of a 381-meter skyscraper hotel, built in Vals, Switzerland, designed by Morphosis Architects.

from designboom:

morphosis architects have revealed the design of a new luxury hotel to be built in vals, switzerland. the unveiling of the scheme follows an international competition in which eight of the world’s leading architectural practices contended for the opportunity to complete the project. the concept is defined by three primary forms: a podium linking the building with neighboring structures; a cantilever containing a restaurant, café, spa, and bar – public amenities shared with the town; and a 381 meter-tall tower containing a sky bar, restaurant, and 107 guest rooms with sweeping panoramic views.
