Airbnb Inc. has launched a $10 million fund to inspire the creation of the wackiest and most unique property destinations on the planet. 

The vacation-rental site will offer 100 people $100,000 to create unforgettable stays, like a “livable donut in the desert,” according to the application form. Designs must possess a wow factor, consider the environment, and be completable by August 2023. A panel of judges, including American designer Iris Apfel and Sydney-based architect Koichi Takada, will evaluate submissions and select the projects.
