Hotel Everland In Yverdon

While started as an exhibition piece, this mobile hotel has been travelling from one beautiful spot to another.
Hotel Everland is a project by Swiss artist-duo L/B(Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann).
Hotel Everland was first developed for the exhibition concept "Everland" at the Swiss national exhibition in the year 2002. The hotel was designed by L/B and build by a team of craftspeople. After the hotel was build, it was transported to Yverdon (Switzerland) where it was located on the lake of Neuchatel for 4 months. When the exhibition ended, the mobile hotel was brought to Burgdorf (Switzerland) and placed on the roof of L/B’s studio.
After a couple years of rest, the pavilion was moved to the roof-deck of the Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig (Germany) from June 2006 until September 2007. As final destination, hotel Everland moved to Paris and will stay there until the end of 2008. It’s installed on the roof of Palais de Tokyo with a view on the Eiffel Tower.
Hotel Everland is a hotel with only one room that includes a bathroom, a king-size bed and a lounge. The room can be booked for one night only including a fully stocked mini-bar and breakfast delivered to the door. It’s also possible to visit Everland during the day.
