The Netherlands might have lost the final game of the World Cup to Spain, but they are winning in terms of sustainable architecture.  Architecture firms RAU and Powerhouse Company, based in the Netherlands, have designed a “super-efficient” luxury hotel for Amsterdam that is powered by one thing the city has lots of- water.

According to Inhabitat, “The H2Otel is a prototype for a new hotel typology that uses water as its main source of energy for heating, cooling, cooking, and the generation of electricity.”  This proposed hotel will be situated along the Amstel River and will be a net-zero building.  The rooms will be equipped with a climate system that will shut off the air conditioning completely if the room is vacant, helping to cut the building’s energy consumption by 40%.

Currently the proposed H2Otel is on display at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York.
