Ordos House

Project

ORDOS 100 is a development in Inner Mongolia that consist of one hundred 1000s qm villas designed by 100 architects from 27 different countries, selected by Herzog & de Meuron over a master plan developed and curated by Ai Wei Wei (FAKE Design).

There are two strategies to follow when dealing with big- scale landscapes: to define a limit and domesticate the space within (introversion) or to gain height to dominate the vastness (extroversion). We decided to do both and have a smooth transition from one to another.
