Architects t3arc have created 20 rooms made from recycled concrete pipes. The hotelconcept is called Tubohotel. This idea is inspired by dasparkhotel, a concept in Germany. The concept was based on the fact that t3arc saw a need of low priced spaces that were eco-responsible and they saw a need for the use of wast materials for construction. The rooms include a queen-size bed, desk light and fan and there is space under the bed for some storage.  The Tubohotel is located in the Magic Village of Tepoztlan.  It’s about 45 minutes of mexico city. The rooms are priced $42 a night, they hope the price will attract backpackers and people who are looking for an alternative and unique accommodation. For bathroom facilities there are two communal bath houses with private showers.

This concept is related to the trend sustainability, because the use wast materials for construction. This concept is also related to the trend experience economy, because it is an alternative way of camping.
