Airbnb is Giving Away $10M For Making Weirdest Destinations on Earth


  • Launching a design competition for the wildest lodging concepts is Airbnb.
  • Offering to convert them into real residences for $10 million USD.
  • To create the wackiest rooms, Airbnb is calling on all architects and designers.

According to the application form, the vacation rental website will give 100 people $10 Million to build memorable stays, such as a "livable donut in the desert."

Designs must be visually stunning, take the surroundings into account, and be finished by August 2023.

The projects will be chosen and evaluated by a team of judges that includes Sydney-based architect Koichi Takada and American designer Iris Apfel. In order to assist users in finding off-the-beaten-path locales, Airbnb overhauled its website in May.

The Big Idaho Potato Hotel in Boise, Idaho, which from the outside resembles a huge spud and offers comfortable luxuries like a fireplace and antler-carved lighting fixtures, is one of the unique vacation houses that the OMG! Fund is intended to spotlight.

Horseback riding, cattle drives, and rodeos are offered at the Deluxe Covered Wagon farm stay outside of Las Vegas.

Despite rising gas prices and flight cancellations, Expedia Group Inc., Booking Holdings Inc., and Airbnb have all stated that they expect this summer to be among the greatest ever for the business. 

As disputes rage about the advantages of staying at an Airbnb versus a hotel room, the company's focus on distinctive properties helps it stand out from the competition. The San Francisco-based company reported that from 2019 to 2021, nights reserved at unique properties rose internationally by more than 49%.
