Open Plan, social interaction in hotels

Open Plan by Andre Pradiktha is the community prize winner for Tablet’s Rethink Hotels competition to design a new concept that would maximize the hotel’s potential as a site for social interaction. It is all about creating hotels for travelers and locals alike- no more tourist bubbles!

Open Plan, by Andre Pradiktha. This is a case where a smart title goes a long way; Open Plan pretty much says it all. Mr. Pradiktha’s inside-out design is meant to serve as the anchor of “a new Broadway,” marrying a public entertainment space with typical hotel services like a bar, café, restaurant and meeting spaces. The whole thing is open to guests and locals alike — including, if you look closely at the renderings, a tiny Suri Cruise.
