Ark Hotel of China.
The hotel shook as the arch can be adapted to land and water. It is built to stay afloat in case of floods or flood waters. The 14,000 square feet of shell-shaped structure of arcs and cable distributes the weight evenly, which means it can withstand earthquakes. Natural light is filtered through local domestic grounds of the hotel see-through structure, reducing lighting needs.
