Doughnut designs

September, 2013


China's horseshoe-shaped hotel Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort is set to be the country's latest unusual landmark. Designed by architect Ma Yansong, the eye-catching 27-storey building is actually a fully oval design with two underground levels connecting to form a visible doughnut shape. It has a lavish interior with 20,000 Swarovski and European natural crystal lamps creating a wavelike formation. The lobby floor is paved with Afghanistan White Jade and Tiger's Eye Stone from Brazil.
