Hotel Puerta America, Madrid

New life goal: stay in at least three of the suites by different architects at the under-construction Hotel Puerta America in Madrid.

From John Pawson’s site

“The Hotel Puerta América project brings together a team of collaborators which includes Jean Nouvel, Marc Newson, Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Christian Liaigre, David Chipperfield, Kathryn Findlay, Jason Bruges, Arata Isozaki, Jonnie Bell, Harriet Bourne, Ron Arad, Plasma Studio, Araki, Richard Gluckman, Teresa Sapey, Vittorio & Luchino, Felipe Saes de Gordoa, Javier Mariscal, Fernando Salas and Arnold Chan.”

There is a sneak preview (in audio) in this week’s “In Business” programme on BBC Radio 4, entitled “Tall Storeys” where Peter Day interviews David Chipperfield about the project, whilst conducting a survey of the state of the architectural profession.

Incidently, “In Business” can now be enjoyed in mp3 format delivered to the ‘podcasting’ software of your choice, thanks to the fine work of BBC R&Mi.
