The future of hospitality is here! The US will soon be home to the world's first 3D-printed hotel, located in Marfa, Texas. This sprawling 62-acre desert oasis is a collaboration between Danish studio BIG and 3D-construction firm ICON. It's called El Cosmico and it's set to open in 2024.
Architect Bjarke Ingels has designed the hotel to be printed from sand and volcanic ash, making it an environmentally friendly option for travelers looking for a unique experience. The hotel will feature a variety of rooms and amenities, including a campground, housing project, and more.

This isn't the only 3D-printed hotel on the horizon either - Lewis Grand Hotel in the Philippines has already erected its own 3D-printed suite. With this technology becoming more accessible and affordable, we can expect to see many more of these innovative hotels popping up around the world in the near future.
