Fancy a guitar-shaped building?

Fancy a guitar-shaped building?

The new Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood complex near Miami, Florida (USA), set to make its debut in 2019, has been described as the first building the world that's truly to scale designed as an authentic guitar.

This 638-room hotel in the Seminole complex has been designed to resemble two back-to-back guitars. Though it might be the largest guitar building, the Seminole structure will not be the first. In 1996, architect Glenn Williams designed a guitar house for himself that was inspired by Picasso's cubist rendering of the instrument.

The new 140-metre tower will feature blue glass windows, several restaurants, lounges and a 41,000 sq ft spa. The other main feature of the property will be a 10-acre lagoon-style pool. At the centre of the pool complex will be private villas surrounded by waterfalls, with private plunge pool access and butler service. The complex will also include a large casino, beach club dining and water sport activities. The 5,500-seat Hard Rock Live arena on the property will soon be completely demolished and replaced with a 7,000-seat theatre-style venue housing its own television studio and broadcast centre.
