Modular hotel elements of the future – Connectic by Cooper Carry Architects.

Cooper Carry Architects took home Radical Design’s grand prize this year for Connectic, their innovative modular hospitality solution.

Cooper Carry Architects brought home the top prize at the recent Radical Innovation competition in New York.

The modular units conceived of by the design firm were deemed to have the most potential to impact the hospitality industry.

Connectic at the Radical Innovation awards

This year’s Radical Innovation awards were recently held in the New Museum in New York City, where the three shortlisted designs selected from over 500 entries went head to head to take home the biggest prize of the night, the $10,000 Grand Prize.

This year, the accolade went to Cooper Carry Architects for their Connectic scheme, which conceptualised a series of interconnecting modular hospitality units that span over, under and in-between existing structures to house pop-up hotels or temporary housing in urban areas.

Connectic was up against another modular project, Volumetric High Rise Modular Hotel by Danny Foster & Architects, as well as the Infinite Explorer project by SB Architects.

Radically innovative design

The Radical Innovation award was bestowed on Connectic because of the versatility of its potential uses. The collapsible units are mobile and can be set up and taken down in a range of urban conditions.

In-fill sites can often cause difficulties for investors, developers and local authorities, so the idea of having some sort of temporary dwelling structure that can be erected quickly and safely and moved somewhere else as and when is necessary is very appealing.

Connectic is based on the idea that this parasitic model can help increase urban density, as well as giving potential guests a unique experience of an area that might not traditionally be home to a hotel.
