Lotus Flower Hotel, Inner Mongolia

Aerial of the Desert Lotus Hotel

Located in the desert of Inner Mongolia, is the Desert Lotus Hotel. A concrete-free hotel erected in the shape of a lotus blossom in Xiang Sha Wan, in the Gobi Desert. PlaT Architects had to invent a new structural system to be anchored in the sands by panels and a prefabricated steel support skeleton.

The hotel is free of tiles and bricks and uses low carbon environment friendly materials to utilize solar, water and wind energy.
