Guest Post: Increased Efforts by Hotels to Become Green #greenbuilding

Although this off-shore attraction is still in its proposal stages, there is much to marvel at the concept of this half-sphere wonder. The proposal by Vision division is to create a sun-like hotel that will essentially illuminate itself through the use of its array of solar panels. It is to be a self-sustaining structure and the excess energy provided from the array will give the hotel a glow that can be seen from the beach to simulate a sunrise or sunset during specific times of the day. It would feature a water park, casino, and various observation decks that can be used to overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Although the idea does have its glamor tailored for the “Sunshine State” by bringing elements of the Caribbean to Miami, there may be a few skeptics on-shore who don’t relish in the idea of half of an orange sphere being seen seemingly floating in the ocean.
