PSFK has partnered with real-estate crowdfunding company Prodigy Network to crowdsource the designs for their most recent project 17John, an innovative hotel in the heart of New York City’s Financial District. This series of articles provides inspiration for readers wishing to be a part of the project and join the crowd in designing the first Cotel.

Think you have what it takes to design a hotel that meets the needs of the modern business traveler? Maybe you do, but time is of the essence and we’re always on the lookout for more inspirational entries.

At this year’s PSFK CONFERENCE 2014, real-estate crowdfunding company Prodigy Network will announce the top early submissions for 17John– a competition to design the physical and virtual components of the world’s first ‘Cotel’, an extended stay hotel created to service the needs of the modern business traveler.

Though the competition is still ongoing and official prize winners have yet to be decided, the three entries below met the April 4th early submission deadline and will be featured as part of a round-up held on stage at the conference here in New York on this Friday, April 11th.

The main competition will run through April 21st and offer $50k of total prizes. View the competition brief in full and sign-up to enter here.

Below are the top early submissions inspiring us across the three areas of the design brief:
