Hard Rock Inspiration
The guitar hotel structure was the vision of James F. Allen who is the CEO of the Seminole Gaming and Hard Rock International.
Speaking from the preview launch event on Wednesday he said the Architects could not see the vision at first. Their initial concept was a rectangular box shaped glass design with a guitar shaped pattern. The ultimate design is now the guitar shaped building we see in the model. Allen said his Architects thought he was crazy.
The building will feature blue glass windows with coloured lights and there will be nothing like it in the world. It is a most ambitious project and faces some very technical challenges.
The cost of the Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City has risen during recent months. Ambition does cost money but it is exciting.
