Finalist:

Green Air Hotel

Studio Twist, China

There is a current air pollution crisis in China, and hotel guests are trapped in outdated, generic buildings in urgent need of an upgrade. This hotel concept has interior and exterior green lungs--where greenhouse gardens act as air filters to remove harmful toxins in the air and replenish it with oxygen.

Finalist:

Hotel 2020

Code Design Studio, USA

Furnished with 3D-printed interiors, this hotel offers guests an augmented reality where the user can interact with the space through computations. The 3D-printed parts, reinforced with latest composite materials, not only enhances the “buildability” of structures, but also takes into account different emotional states of guests to increase the impact of the design.

Honorable Mention:

S_Lot

Natalie Kwee & Caio Barboza, USA

Short for “small lots”, this modular system will occupy unused vertical parking structures, allowing each guest to easily modify their experience using interchangeable amenities. The pods can be shifted up and down to create a variety of facades, and the system can be expanded upon or shrunk depending on the urban site it inhabits.

 

Student Winner:

Sky Lofts

Evelyn Choy and Evelyn Hartojo

University of Melbourne

With the abandonment of monorail beamways in Sydney, Sky Lofts is the upcycling of these structures into pedestrian- and bike-friendly boardwalks with prefabricated accommodation, cafes and reception lofts.


Eric Tan of Pink Cloud
2013 Radical Award winner

PinkCloud, grand prize winner of the 2013 Radical Innovation Award, convinced the Radical Innovation jury and audience that its Pop-Up Hotel concept was the next big thing. Tapping under-utilized space in office buildings, Pop-Up can create fresh, ever-changing hotel environments that come and go based on the need.
