Called Amphibious 1000, this design envisions Qatar’s first semisubmerged hotel as a big aquatic animal stretching out from the land into the sea. Designed by the Giancarlo Zema Design Group, the project is composed of a land section and sea section, with all of the structures situated in a semi-circle around a tower containing a restaurant with sweeping panoramic views. Guests will be able to stay in the 80 floating suites (called jelly fish) which will boast underwater views within the artificial reef.
