Quarry-based "groundscraper" hotel by Jade+QA


London- and Shanghai-based architects Jade+QA have built what I think is a brilliant concept - a resort hotel built in a disused 90m deep water-filled quarry.

The 237-room Shimao Wonderland Intercontinental Hotel, near Shanghai, is described by the architects as a "groundscraper", and officially opened at the end of last year.
