According to the Architect’s Newspaper, Airbnb recently launched a $1 million fund to find offbeat homes. The Unique Airbnb Fund will take the form of a contest to identify 10 “unconventional and unusual” living spaces via an online competition judged by actor Billy Porter, Fokke Moerel, partner at Rotterdam-based architecture firm MVRDV, and Kristie Wolfe, an Airbnb ‘Superhost’ and proprietor of a $199-a-night “baked potato house” located in Boise, Idaho. Competition winners are eligible for up to $100,000 in prizes.

The Unique Airbnb Fund is a great initiative that makes hospitality exciting,” said Moerel in a news release. “It will empower people to create new spaces with daring, imaginative, and fantastic architecture.” Personal wunderkammers will be created for guests to appreciate and be inspired by.
