AT recently posted an article on the Das Park Hotel in Austria. The idea seems brilliant...re purposing old drainage pipes to build a small functional hotel room with a personal key code that keeps your belonging safe and the use of public infrastructure for utilities such as phones, bathrooms and toilets. The best part about this experiment is that the users can pay whatever amount they think they need to - to support this experiment. This idea seems like a very innovative, cost effective utility for low-budget tourists and young couples/friends who want to hang out at the park all night. It also seems to work well in this travel-adverse economy. So the question is - would you like to spend a night in this decently furnished drainage pipe?
