The 7132 Hotel is a design proposal for a 1,250-foot-tall hotel that soars over the Swiss alpine resort of Therme Vals. Created by Morphosis Architects, the design calls for a slim mirror glass tower that will house 107 rooms, one per floor. The design is a product of a design competition hosted by the resort’s developer, though Dezeen reports that earlier this year the competition’s jurors distanced themselves from the selection of Morphosis, citing concerns about “architectural form, scale, materials and relationship to site.” Given the tower’s location and size, bird strikes might also be a concern. Nevertheless the tower is scheduled for completion in 2019.
