Pascal Hausermann designed the project in 1965 when he was asked to elaborate on his modular building ideas, which were practical yet distinguished themselves from regular grey cities. Hausermann broke away from conformity and the rigid rules of architecture and was an advocate for alternative design and radical urban planning.

After a period of being closed down, sold, and then re-sold, the island-based complex reopened to the public several years ago under the new title of Museumotel.
