Speculations: Embed

This project study on a new relationship between tourists (foreigner) and the city (host). Hotel is always located on a specific location with all amenities included. The architect found that this type of hotel typology results a non-interaction between tourist and the city.

By using the idea of fragmentation, hotel is broken apart and all programs in a hotel are expanded into the whole city. Tourist become guest and city hosts the tourists.

Interesting fragmentation
