Life in Desert

The project proposes a new entertainment in the shifting-sand deserts of Maranjab, Iran. It consists of a hotel with box shaped, personal units. The boxes will later be transferred to shifting sands using a tower crane. On the desert, the box will sink into the sands before it is brought back by the crane. While in the desert, tourists will enjoy their solitude and rich moments of meditation.


The project proposes solitary as a form of entertainment in contrary to the common view that categorizes it as a punishment. It also offers some other attractions for the tourists while other boxes are away.
