Hovering high over a jungle while sipping a cocktail — it sounds like a dream but could soon become reality, if designer Jean-Marie Massaud has his way. His bold vision of a luxury airship hotel in the shape of a huge white whale could usher in a new era of eco-friendly tourism.
French designer Jean-Marie Massaud has a vision, one which looks like a huge white whale with flippers and flukes. The futuristic Moby Dick is actually an airship containing a luxury hotel. Guests of the “Manned Cloud,” as the ambitious project is called, will be able to enjoy the world’s most beautiful sights from up on high — if the project ever gets off the ground.
