In recent years there has been a remarkable evolution in the design of hotels, with mainstream hotel chains rejecting characterless functionalism in favour of style-led individualism. This book gathers together over 40 of the best examples of hotel architecture and interiors from around the world, illustrating the impressive diversity of styles and forms. Identifying the latest industry trends, Riewoldt makes plain how both chains and independents have adopted individual design strategies to enhance their brand image in an increasingly global marketplace. It featuers the work of Michael Graves, Jean Nouvel and Philippe Starck amongst other big names.
