— Shimao Wonderland Hotel

A flooded quarry in Songjiang, China, is soon going to become home to a breathtaking 17-storey hotel called the Shimao Wonderland Intercontinental.

 

With just two stories above ground, the remaining 15 will run down the side of the 80 meter high quarry cliff like a glass waterfall.

The thermal mass of the stone will serve to stabilise the temperature of the inside environment, reducing energy requirements. Once you reach water level, you’ll also find a submarine floor containing communal facilities such as the swimming pool and banquet hall.
