To meet these requirements, there are growing trends of tourist hotels in scenic spots. But hotel architectures in terms of energy consumption, pollution and carbon footprints during and after the construction usually have a huge impact on the ecological system, especially in a natural environment. This is something we should pay close attention to and this is also what this year’s competition is all about: to minimize the impact on natural environment.
