I can’t wait to see these concepts developed by design lovers from around the world.”
Design enthusiasts who apply will be judged dependent on creativity, possibility, sustainability and social good, Airbnb said. The organization said it’s likewise searching for designs with “unusual shapes, unexpected locations, immersive concepts, (and) spaces with a story.”
The organization’s competition comes amid a flood in popularity for non-traditional rentals. Looks for unique stays, for example, minor houses, windmills, and shepherds huts, have expanded by about 70% over a year ago, as indicated by Airbnb.
