Gallery: Beijing’s Massive National Hotel will House a 107,000 Square F...

Internationally acclaimed design studio Emergent is currently planning a massive 2.3 million square foot hotel near the Beijing International Airport. Simply dubbed the 'Beijing National Hotel', the 3-ringed, organic-shaped structure is being planned with sustainability in mind. With 1,500 rooms, international conference halls, a restaurant, and a whopping 107,000 square foot indoor rainforest, this monster accommodation will be the largest landmark in the Chinese capital, even visible from landing aircrafts.

Beijing National Hotel’s flowing shape is composed of three distinct rings connected by a single, dynamic surface. Its shiny façade will be made from a lightweight cable-net structure with many windows and skylights providing for an ample flow of natural light to the interiors and the rainforest. The façade’s design also includes curvy grooves for rainwater collection to irrigate the rainforest within.
