Pipe Dreams

OK! Here is a new one for you! This is a HOTEL! Indeed it is! Talk about a New Pod!
The dasparkhotel in Ottensheim, Austria.

Can you guess what it's made out of?

Recycled Drain Pipes!
Genius! Genius! Genius!

Designer, Andreas Strauss. My hero.

They aren't going anywhere! They weigh NINE TONS EACH!

....the tubes had been new when we got them
but they could be reused cause they are a ordinary serial tubes if the dasparkhotel wouldnt function ..wouldnt have had as many vistors as the last 4 years..
by the way there will be a second one at the bernepark near essen opening end of mai as it looks now

all the best from austria

...get inspired, get involved, go-within!
