PROJECT DETAILS

Raffaele Contigiani: H├┤tel du Lac, 1970D–1973

  • Tunis, Tunesia, Show on map
  • #TOU #Precast #Private #Africa
  • The hotel is supposed to have served as inspiration for the Sandcrawler in Star Wars (which has recently been disproven). A particularly brutalist feature are the starkly protruding stairs at the side.

  • Closed and scheduled for demolition in 2013. Still standing, although vacant. Demolition imminent. There is a petition for saving the structure.
