ACCOR HOTEL COMPETITION Mentor: Maria Oliver Fall 2018 Sofitel Hotel, Paris The Accor Hotel Competition was an International competition. The requirements of the project were to derive inspiration from a fashion designer and desgin the interiors of an existing hotel room accordingly. My group mate Layal Nabouni and I, were inspired by Iris Van Herpan. Her use of unconventional materials and forms always spoke about how non living things also created movement. We derived inspiration from this idea and created a room that was â€œaliveâ€?. The walls breathed and the bed moved.

The Chambord Inachevé competition has been articulated within a seminar course entitled Architecture and Utopia. Prior to the beginning of the course several outcomes were set in anticipation for the final outcomes of the course. Firstly, students should explore fictional narratives as a basis for form making within a built environment. The course contents also considered how utopian ideals, as expressed in architectural and fictional literature– Thomas More’s Utopia in this specific case– informs architetural thinking and triggers architectural form-making. Special attention has been paid on how students could explore methods of understanding the built environment through graphic analysis and experimetal time-based narratives (experimental drawing and film making techniques). Challenging at the beginning, the course has also required a theoretical base, which was catered trough several assignments like the research of Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities (i.e.) and the analysis (case studies) of the most important utopian architecture examples: from Etenne-Louis Boulleto Archigram, passing by all the progressive examples of radical architecture of Charles Fournier, Antonio Sant’Élia, Superstudio, Constant Nieuwenhuys, Lebbeus Woodsor Perry Kulper from the 20th and 21st century. Ecotopos began as a utopian dream within the course, as a collective effort of unveiling a common oneiric vision for the Château. The aim was to create a single image out of thirteen different dreams, which bit by bit has been achieved thanks to endless night of hard work, sketches, failures, discussions and agreements. The Spanish architect Miguel Fisac liked to explain how he understood architecture as the perfect balance between site conditions, programatic needs, a rational structure, areasonable budget and the...”unknown”. That unknown aspect of the creative process; that electric ethereal glue of (collective) sensitivity that in this specific case, makes things work. A Chinese whisper that has ended up making sense among the thirteen team members, where it actually can make sense: within an utopian reality, where everything can happen. Our Chambord is a story of imperfections, a frozen moment of what could be. A project that intentionally is open to interpretation. Our Chambord might not even be an architectural project. In our own words: “In this Utopia, it is the same: its movement, its rapidity, its constant adaptation and development requires that it is not perfect in the classical sense. It requires from itself the bravery to go forth without fearing a mistake, a flaw, or an imperfection. These imperfections that give towards a perfection- in this lies a perfect world. In these imperfections, in these changes, in these cracks and these developments and this movement comes a Utopia. In this world without fear, there is no looking back: only looking forward”.
