Architects to design hotel embracing wool in all aspects

Architects from all over the world, are soon to visit New Zealand to be a part of a project that focuses on lifting the demand for wool.

An architect from New Zealand will be joining 13 other architects from countries like US, Germany, Japan, UK, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark. They are all to participate in a contest for designing a hypothetical hotel complex, embracing wool in all possible aspects.

AIT Online, a Germany-based architecture magazine envisaged this project which is to be hosted by the National Council of New Zealand Wool Interests.

Stephen Fookes, Chairman, National Council, informed that the project aimed at nurturing wool as or say re-establishing it as an interior fabric, alongside generating awareness and boosting up the demand of New Zealand wool as an interior fabric not just in the traditional spheres but also by exploring new areas.

The participants will be working on particular areas of the concept hotel in small groups and will make their presentation in Christchurch, the next day. A bonded volume featuring at length, the work of those architects would be high-lighted at international trade fairs and architectural conferences.

Fookes said that not many of the architects with whom they interacted, knew much about wool and thus this project is aimed to be a high scale generic promotion, no matter what.

A major portion of the $200,000 funding would come from the New Zealand wool industry, which will be routed through the National Council.
