Turkish architectural firm Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio (HAADS) has announced plans to build a floating hotel by 2025 in Qatar.

The eco-floating hotel will have 152 rooms and will be designed to reduce energy loss and waste production.

Built with a 24-hour rotation system, the circular-shaped attraction will generate electricity while maintaining its position through a dynamic positioning system.

According to HAADS, the hotel uses a power generation system called a VAWTAU vertical axis wind turbine and umbrella. The vertical aspect functions as a wind turbine and the horizontal plane is used as an umbrella. Thanks to the system implemented in the design, the rotating hotel will be able to produce 25 KW through its 55 VAWTAU modules.

Its vortex-shaped roof will also be able to collect rainwater that can be used to irrigate the hotel's green sites, while also being able to purify sea water and wastewater.

The 152 rooms will have their own separate balconies, through which they will be able to access different parts of the ocean with each rotation. It will include indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna, spa, gym and mini-golf.
