Ordos Museum, located in Inner Mongolia, is the Art and City Museum which was conceived by MAD architects. The municipal government of Ordos, considering the harsh remoteness of the area, 6 years ago commissioned MAD to design this museum as a metropolis and now it has become a completely futuristic landmark of a growing brand-new desert city.
This video was filmed by young film director Niu Han who has captured the interior and exterior structure of this amazing metropolis of art. As the lead architect Ma Yansong has stated, the experience visiting this futuristic shell serving as a tool to protect the cultural history of the region is like “the remote scenes in Botticelli blue movies”.
This piece of art is an original monument of our generation that will represent our contemporary level of architecture for the future generations.
