10 ArchDaily projects you can book through Airbnb
ArchDaily and Airbnb were both founded in 2008, but for two very different reasons. Since then, ArchDaily has amassed a vast database of tens of thousands of buildings, located in cities and countries around the world. Meanwhile, Airbnb has revolutionized the way we explore these countries and use these buildings, if only for one night.
While architecture enthusiasts have sometimes been offered very limited experiences through Airbnb, such as an overnight stay on the Great Wall of China or an architectural tour of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Stadium courtesy of Kengo Kuma , it turns out that Airbnb’s listings contain architectural gems that are available for regular booking.
Located in various contexts, from Iceland to Peru, and designed by famous architects past and present, we’ve unboxed ten projects previously featured by ArchDaily, now available to book through Airbnb. If you are not registered with Airbnb, you can get a $ 37 travel credit using ArchDaily Referral Code.
