Archinect - Features 2017-08-24T06:54:28-04:00 The Short Life and Bitter End to Munich's 'Yellow Submarine' Julia Ingalls 2016-11-26T12:26:00-05:00 >2016-11-28T12:30:16-05:00 <img src="" width="650" height="432" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Made of 16 bathtubs with specially installed portholes, 'Yellow Submarine' was a hotel room/political housing statement, and one of the 24-winning designs in the&nbsp;2015 Shabbyshabby Apartments competition.&nbsp;Created by the Glasgow-based and Lithuanian-staffed collective Urban Restart along with Kurt Cleary, the design is purposefully referred to in the past tense: only two days after it was erected in Munich, it was destroyed. This prompted speculation that vandals, or right-wing extremists opposed to refugees, were responsible.</p> ShowCase: White Wolf Hotel by AND-RÉ Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-22T15:37:00-04:00 >2014-03-24T21:19:25-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="429" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The White Wolf Hotel sits low to the ground in the verdant landscape of Penafiel, Portugal, calmly set by forest and stream.&nbsp;AND-R&Eacute;'s neutral white hotel is no-frills in and out, its simple geometry free of distracting stimuli for visitors to enjoy a complete mental and physical respite. The hotel shares its namesake with a local wolf species, and while it bares little biomimetic relation, appears similarly at home in the landscape.</p> ShowCase: Hotel Wiesergut by GOGL ARCHITEKTEN Archinect 2013-03-06T19:55:00-05:00 >2013-05-16T04:39:45-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="434" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>ShowCase</strong></a> is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p> <p> <em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features - if you would like to suggest a project, <a href="" target="_blank">please send us a message</a>.</em></p>
