Award-winning architect Jean Nouvel has revealed designs for a hotel sculpted from ancient sandstone rock formations in Saudi Arabia.
The design is inspired by the building techniques of the Nabateans, whose capital city Petra is one of the seven wonders of the world.
New renderings show a sleek glass elevator, rooftop restaurant, and balconies that scatter light across the stone interior.
Nouvel has previously designed iconic buildings including the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the National Museum of Qatar.
The Sharaan by Jean Nouvel Resort is set to open in 2024 with 40 guest suites and is part of a 10-year tourism partnership between Saudi Arabia and France.
