Hyperloop Hotel would allow us to travel in space
An American graduate student designs a conceptual Hyperloop Hotel combining transportation system and 13 hotels in different cities in the US. Guest would be able to zoom quickly between cities without leaving their rooms.
When you go out of town, you usually need to buy a few nights at a hotel in addition to a plane, train, or bus ticket.
Brandan Siebrecht, a graduate architecture student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, wants to combine these components into one experience. He designed what he calls the "Hyperloop Hotel," a system that would feature a transit system and 13 hotels in different cities throughout the United States.
Siebrecht is the student winner of this year's Radical Innovation Award , a competition for imaginative hotel designs. In June, a jury of seven hotel investors, developers, and architects selected Driftscape as the one of two finalists out of over 65 submissions from 24 countries.
The design was inspired by DevLoop, a real test track for Hyperloop One being developed north of Las Vegas. A concept first introduced by Tesla CEO Elon Musk in 2013, a hyperloop is a mode of transportation that would propel a pod-like vehicle through a reduced-pressure tube. Hyperloop One wants the system to be energy-efficient, autonomous, and quicker than a plane.
Siebrecht believes construction of his hotel concept could be feasible within the next five to 10 years.
