A Hotel on the Border Strip

Etienne Boulanger has built a two-star hotel room where the militralised Berlin Wall border strip used to run. It has a double-bed, a shower, TV, but has no window as it is a room built inside a billboard block (ITN, 2009). The Single Room Hotel was a project to explore "concerns linked to architecture and inconspicuousness in an urban environment and reveals the mechanisms of production and development of temporarily marginalized spaces" at Skulpturenpark Berlin Zentrum, and guests could book the 32m sq room for 29.95 euro (Boulanger, 2008).
