Yesterday’s Rubbish

Yesterday was the last opportunity to spend the night in Madrid’s Corona “Save the Beach Hotel”. The five room temporary rubbish B&B was designed by German eco-artist Ha Schult and was built of 12 tons of garbage collected from beaches in Italy, Spain, Belgium and France. Even the wallpaper was a colorful collage of trash from landfills.

Located in Plaza de Callao, in the heart of Madrid, the Corona Beer sponsored hotel was unveiled in time for Madrid’s annual travel trade show to raise awareness about damage done to the world’s beaches from tourism waste and consumerism.
