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

 
There are also spaces planned for international conference halls, hotel service areas, a top restaurant, and of course, the very large luscious rainforest, which will be protected by anti-corrosive ETFE plastic domes (Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene).

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.
