Museum Ordos by MAD Architects

November 14, 2011 Comments Off on Museum Ordos by MAD Architects


 This article represents a newly built museum in the new city of Ordos (Inner Mongolia, China), a building that was created six years ago. Now it tries to revive the sand dunes of the Gobi Desert  before an ambitious development plan is developed. From the outside, the building is a huge irregularly shaped object with a curved facade and a very consistent metal-coated line.
Inside, the museum is a labyrinthine cave with high-rising space crossed by bridges, giving the feeling of walking through a canyon. As you walk, though, impressive skylights come as a surprise to you. We’ve uploaded here images related to the complex metal complex structure, as well as the constructive scheme of the facade which explains how to form this second metal ‘skin’.
Have a look at this impressive building with lovely elements and you will never forget it.
