A proposed hotel is set to add something entirely new to the Parisian skyline, should it be approved by city officials.
Conceptualized by SCAU Architectes, the carnival ride-inspired hotel — that is, a rotating ferris wheel taller than most buildings in the area — features rooms where the seats usually are.
Visitors will be able to spend the night rotating around the structure and view the "City of Lights" from various vantage points. The ride would move relatively slowly — one full rotation every half hour. Take a look:
Each pod-like room will feature a fully padded sleeping chamber as well as a bathroom, and a large window to provide unobstructed views of the city.
According to , the team at SCAU plans for the hotel to be a temporary fixture in Paris, as they intend to bring it to other large cities as well.
"The idea is to put it up temporarily on the banks of rivers in big cities, preferably opposite exceptional monuments like the Eiffel Tower or Big Ben," architect .
And the reports that it will only take four days for the wooden structure to be disassembled when the time comes to travel to a new city.
Don't worry if you need a little liquid courage before sleeping inside a ferris wheel though, the hotel will also feature a restaurant and bar on a neighboring barge, where visitors can also wait for their specific room to descend to the entry platform.
