russian firm a. asadov architectural studio have designed ‘aerotel’ a concept hotel on water. the project is an alternative for the man-made islands and could be realized in any water area – from town lakes to the ocean seashores.

the advantage is that construction costs would be low (in comparison with man-made islands) for the full recreation complex. aerotel consist of two levels for relaxation – on the water (with several ponds of fresh and sea water) and in the air (the hanging hotel with a ‘web park’)

the construction consists of the ring membrane, stretched on arms and fixed on 3 supports, coming to the bottom. the arms structure forms a ‘web park’ with pedestrian roads and some plants – some kind of ‘hanging gardens’. inside the membrane there could be a hotel with cafes, restaurants and winter gardens. you could reach the hotel two ways – from water (by escalator along the support) or from the air – by airship (there are special mooring areas on the ring for them to land and park).
