Hotel Elqui Domos filmed by James Florio
This stop-frame movie by American photographer James Florio documents the day and night-time scenes at Elqui Domos, a hotel for stargazers in Chile's Elqui Valley.
First opened in 2005, the hotel comprises a series of timber cabins where guests can observe the stars whilst lying in their beds.
Some cabins feature geodesic domes on their rooftops, while four recent additions by Santiago studio RDM Arquitectura come with large angled skylights and rooftop viewing platforms.
James Florio used over 23,000 photographs to make the four-minute movie, taken over a period of six months.
Other recent architecture projects in Chile include a hillside house with staggered terraces and a rusted steel and concrete school building. See more architecture in Chile.
