The Corner Hotel

The development of the Corner seeks to produce a new form of user interaction in a much-traversed intersection of Houston. Taking advantage of the location and the activity already present, the articulation of the public space — the development of the corner — is an imposition of a new phenomenon missing in Houstonian urbanism. The public space seeks to produce a new culture of leisure and pedestrianism in the affluent River Oaks area. The space at the corner can function as an agora, a spectacle, a market. The flexibility of this space allows the hotel to be more than an architectural icon in its location, the Corner can become an experience for locals and travelers alike.
