The project is a European network of hotels with a building in every metropolis city that attracts tertiary labour (predominantly the North Western Metropolitan Area). In alliance with European high-speed rail operators, the hotels will facilitate the rootless lives of people in motion. An annual membership fee represents the right to stay in any of the hotels every night of the year. However, by limiting each stay to no more than three months in one location the hotel breaks spatial possession, escape the conditions of permanent residency and ensure perpetual circulation of people.
Since labour mobility within the European Union help to reduce labour market pressures and ease economic imbalances, the hotels may possibly be subsidized by the EU commission to alleviate housing cost. The hotel chain will be the first social housing project of the European Union. In that sense, it is a withdrawal from the nation state in any sense, rejecting and opposing its context and referring only to itself. Accordingly, the project hovers ubiquitously over the universal standards of the railway.
The Hotel accommodates three temporalities for being in transit according to the respective membership plans; A lounge area for waiting in between departures; A coworking space inhabited on a daily basis; and dwelling units inhabited for days, weeks or months.
As an analogue to the idea of Europe, and politically represented by the EU, the hotel will encourage the construction of a pan-European community. Since home no longer confines to a single geographical locus nor nation, the project refuse ownership and incentivizes shared amenities. Refusing ownership over something, means simply using it. Use is here understood not as value, but as the act of sharing things and thus the supreme for of living together in common. This eliminates the burden of material property in favor of traveling lightly. Traveling lightly means leaving with the bare minimum, arriving discreetly in an unknown place and immediately modulate daily life to this new environment.
