This is the Beach Garbage Hotel, a project that has been created to highlight the rubbish that is washed up on our beaches. The hotel in Spain has been built by German artist Ha Schult. He has covered the walls with waste found at dumps and items brought at flea markets with around 30% of the items being found on beaches in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. He is quoted as saying "I created the Beach Garbage Hotel because the oceans of our planet are the biggest garbage dump."
