World's Most Unusual Hotels
Save the Beach Hotel, Various Locations
Everyone loves a beach vacation but no one likes a coastline covered in trash. That was the inspiration for German artist HA Schult, who created a mobile hotel from 13 tons of trash collected from European beaches in 2010. (It’s been spotted in Madrid, among other locations.) The strange collage of colorful construction includes walls made from discarded musical instruments, torn trousers, plastic bottles, crushed cans, and limbs from storefront mannequins. Who would want to sleep on a trash pile? The first guest was supermodel Helena Christensen.
