This week’s crazy building is the Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi. One part is actually built right into a racetrack and is the only hotel in the world to have been constructed in this way! The other main building of the hotel is located right next to the marina.
The other notable feature of this structure is the LED outer shell called the “Grid Shell.” It is composed of 5,389 color changing, movable LED panes and is visible from miles away.
The Hotel was designed by Asymptote Architecture and draws inspiration from racing. This is notable in the smooth and aerodynamic shape of the hotel.
Not only is the sleek design interesting but the color changing LED panes are amazing. This futuristic structure is sure to dazzle any who visit!
