hotel art

Alright so here’s my story!

Basically around the time when I was first watching Jack’s videos he talked a bit about going to college for hotel management. So at the time I thought that his job was being a hotel manager and YouTube was something he did occasionally, I quickly learned that wasn’t the case 😅

Hotel L'Era De Can Burges by Brad Downey in collaboration with AKAY, 2014.

A massive 9 bedroom country house hotel, 14 km outside of Girona, Spain is turned inside-out over the course of a week.  An entire football field was covered with fabric, they carried out 168 chairs, 23 beds, and emptied the house of all its lights and art. The cook shrieked to find all of the cookware and cutlery floating in the full sized swimming pool, clinking melodically on the calm surface, when she came that evening to prepare the 10pm dinner for the thirty hotel guests.

Maybe the fascination of travel,
of seeing new places,
discovering foreign cities
or tasting a different kind of sea
is actually caused by the chance
to escape from ourselves.

“In the first years of the 20th century, Duke Peter of Oldenburg, a Russian aristocrat, built a palace (above) and a hotel in Gagra, and put Gagra on the map as a holiday destination for the wealthy. Both buildings were designed in art nouveau style, though many of the finishing touches have since disappeared from the dilapidated edifice.

The Soviet government nationalized the palace built by Duke Peter and converted it into the Hotel Chaika (Seagull), which maintained the air of an aristocratic refuge. However, during the war between the Abkhaz and Georgians, the Chaika was looted and has never been repaired.“ - Photos & text from this Wired article
