NASSAU, BAHAMAS PROJECT: STUDENT IS RANDOMLY GIVEN A CITY SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD. THE STUDENT MUST THEN COME UP WITH A CONCEPT BASED ON THE AREA AND A COLOR RATIONALE. THEY MUST THEN CREATE A HOTEL LOBBY, BREAKFAST AREA, AND RESTAURANT/ OUTDOOR AREA WITHIN THE LOCATION.


THE ARCHITECTURAL STYLE OF THE BAHAMAS IS BASED OFF OF THE BAHAMIAN CLAPBOARD HOUSE. MOST TROPICAL RESORTS HAVE ADAPTED THIS STYLE, IT MIMICS THE COLORS AND PATTERNS FOUND IN NATURE AND ALLOWS THE BEAUTY OF THE OUTSIDE TO BE BROUGHT INSIDE BY USING LARGE WINDOWS AND HIGH CEILINGS.

THE COLOR SCHEME FOR THIS HOTEL IS BASED ON MANY OF THE BRIGHT COLORS FOUND IN NATURE ON THE ISLAND OF THE BAHAMAS. THE BLUES REFLECT THE OCEAN, THE GREENS THE PLANT LIFE, AND THE ORANGES, REDS AND PINKS REFLECT THE MANY TYPES OF FLOWERS AND BREATHTAKING SUNSETS.
