Further development

Two years later, the South-Tyrolean businessman Josef Innerhofer learned about the project. He went to Berlin to investigate the «Loftcube» prototype and discovered its huge potential for the landscape.

Josef Innerhofer had just finished a hotel project near Merano and so he was prepared for starting a new one. He instantly caught the potential in Mr. Aisslinger’s small white cube – in particular for rural regions with its many vacant spots. However, in order to make this project be accepted in rural areas, the cubes had to be less technic and made of local materials.

Besides, environmental intervention had to be reduced to a minimum, the time of use of the area had to be limited, and the building fully recyclable after its use – as if a UFO was landing and then again continuing its flight after having fulfilled its mission.
