Trust the folks in Dubai to come up with some of the most outlandish yet sophisticated architectural structures…
the hotel designed by Sybarite Architects would feature a two-storey jungle at the top of the 28-storey building. The US$350m (£173m) 28-floor Aperiron building would be 300m from the Dubai coast and accessible only by boat or helicopter.
As well as 438 luxury suites, it would contain a spa, an art gallery, and an underwater restaurant with views into a surrounding lagoon. To top it off, the top two floors would house a temperature-controlled butterfly jungle with tropical species.
Although this exceptionally planned structure is not officially named, the folks out there have nickanmed it as ‘The Rollmop’, ‘The Pringle’ and ‘The Funnel’!
This just might be the wackiest design I have seen to hit Dubai yet (and we've seen more than a few over the years).
