Connectic by Cooper Carry has been announced as the winner of the 2019 Radical Innovation Award. Connectic's use of modular construction techniques for underutilized spaces is a radical solution that is adaptable to respond to a variety of environments. This concept could be used to build a pop-up hotel in remote area or to help solve problems of space and density in urban cores.
Interstitial spaces between buildings, parking lots, forgotten pocket parks, and above buildings offer an opportunity for hotels of the future to use Connectic's model to increase volume of available keys, amenities and connect neglected spaces to existing hotels. This would become an aggregation that can swell and shrink as needed and generate profit while providing guests with a unique experience. A collective of modules that are at once collapsible and reusable, they can be disassembled and stored conveniently until the need for additional accommodation. Conflating multiple revenue streams into a single solution. And, a kinematic proposal to temporary events.
