This Hotel Facade Is Probably the Furthest Thing From Contextual

New, 3 comments

There's a case to be made that if a building is not going to reference its surroundings, it might as well go completely in the opposite direction, and in the case of the Hotel Cumbres Lastarria in Santiago, Chile, architect/proprietor Rodrigo Errázuriz designed a facade that is unique enough that it would not fit in on any street anywhere in the world. And for the record, it looks really cool.
