HOTEL AS HOME — HOME AS HOTEL
Architect and photographer Gary Chang has a strange obsession: he loves hotels. Clocking up an average 120 days a year traveling all over the world, Chang has become something of a hotel expert, but meeting his exacting standards for a suitable home away from home isn’t easy. His favorite hotels are places with a certain special quality, like New York’s kitschy Maritime, Budapest’s classic Gellert, or Zurich’s brand-spanking new Zurichberg. Chang’s favorite finds are documented in beautiful photographs and personal texts in Hotel as Home. He presents thirty-five hotels from around the world in this wonderfully atmospheric book — from Hotel 101 in Reykjavik, Hotel Le Corbusier in Marseilles, and Soho House Hotel in New York, to W Hotel in Sydney and Hotel Metropolitan in Bangkok. Whether it’s the all-white design of Phillipe Starck’s Hotel Delano (Miami), the Art Deco brass bed and chandelier in the rooms of Istanbul’s Pera Palace Hotel, or the Zen atmosphere of London’s Hotel Hempel, there’s something to discover and appreciate in all of the hotels featured here, one of which might be your next home away from home when you’re on the road.
