This serpent-like hotel, coiled around the glacial outcroppings of Norway's gorgeous Lofoten Islands north of the Arctic Circle, has been proposed by the architecture firm Snøhetta. The building's central loop will enclose a courtyard, offering a "spectacular view and the feeling of being 'in the middle' of the elements," according to the architects. [Dezeen]

Why not, and I'm ready for all the hate, just walk outside and be in the middle of the elements? You're in the Arctic Circle. There's a whole lot of people who have never been there, especially me, who would love to visit and just walk around outside.
