The living dreamscape – An avant-garde masterpiece in the middle of one of the most traditional cities in the world. SO/ Vienna is much more than an ordinary luxury hotel. Built by the French star architect Jean Nouvel, it is rather a work of art that fits into the multifaceted cityscape like a sculpture. Intended as a tribute to contemporary art, Nouvel has collaborated with a team of young artists, completely redefining the concept of the “hotel”.
Architect or artist? Definitely a genius in his field. The Pritzker Prize winner is responsible for some of the most spectacular buildings in the world: the Institute of the Arab World in Paris, the Opera in Lyon, the Fondation Cartier in Paris – just to name a few. His most recent projects include the 142 meter high Torre Agbar in Barcelona and the Guggenheim Museums in Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro. For him, a hotel is much more than a temporary home, it is an adventure in the mind.
