Check In to the Hotel of the Future

sketch from WATG's Lost DiVinci notebook

When it comes to hotels, you may not be thinking past your next check-in, but a lot of thought is going into the hotels and resorts of the future. The international architectural design firm WATG recently got together with a bunch of hotel chains, manufacturing companies, Hospitality Design magazine, and a bunch of other folks to brainstorm. You can see some of their ideas... and get some sense of what your luxury hotel room might be like in 20 years, in this PDF that re-casts Leonardo DiVinci as a hotel guest.

WATG does a lot of thinking about extreme architectural futures. Check out their sketches for a undersea hotel.
