We always salute those that build something thinking about the way it affects the environment we live in. However, the big surprise is that the Chinese are doing it close to Shanghai.

In a 100-meter deep quarry the guys at Atkins designed the eco-luxury Songjiang Hotel that will use geothermal technology to generate electricity and hot water.

The great advantage is that no land had to be leveled or destroyed and the quarry itself is going to act as a natural shelter against natural forces and elements. Aside from its stunning design, it’s going to be located in a lovely scenery surrounded by water that includes waterfalls and an amazing underwater aquarium.
