Architecture firm Urbanplunger has created a proposal for a nightclub and hotel tower in Hong Kong that would be completely suspended above the ground. The structure, which would lean on neighboring buildings' infrastructure, acts as an "architectural parasite," Architecture Source reports.

The building is connected to the ground level green space by only a series of glass elevators which lead to the nightclub on the lowest levels. Above that is a public lobby, which provides access to a spa, swimming pool, restaurants and a business cent. The upper-level hotel would feature balconied rooms as well as a presidential suite at the top.
