the proposal is a removable hotel ‘room’ inspired by organic shapes of nature suitable to be installed in natural locations. its main features are removable architecture, organic design and eco-friendly services. this portable micro-architecture is composed of modular wooden and steel elements and the structure is installed above the ground to avoid contact with the soil and minimally interfering with the unspoiled land continuing to grow underneath. the design incorporates the use of spherical transparent enclosures that can be completely opened and bring guests into direct contact with nature.
