We have harnessed the collective intelligence of the crowd to help us define the future of hotels and design the world's first "Cotel," 17John. Winners were selected from over 70 proposals from more than 20 countries.
Business travels at the speed of innovation, and despite the changing needs of this next generation traveler, no hotel or extended-stay has accommodated their emerging expectations around work, connectivity, and socialization. In anticipation of these changes Prodigy Network has introduced into their project portfolio 17John, the world’s first Cotel. As a “living-canvas” the crowd will design the future of hotels and business travel.
This will be the first crowdsourcing contest for a commercial building in New York: the Cotel 17John, the first collaborative hotel in the world. It will be an interactive space in which the best and brightest ideas for a modern hotel experience will materialize.
Prodigy Network's mission is to inspire everybody to join the crowd. Through crowdsourcing, Prodigy Network believes that together we can use design and collaboration to find innovative solutions to some of today's most difficult challenges. Prodigy Network uses crowdsourcing, to inspire new ideas and projects online. Prodigy Design Lab invites professionals across the globe to join the first crowdsourcing platform focused on architecture, urban planning, and real estate.
