Original geography as the new ground
The unique geography of the site records the ancient natural history of this place. It will be preserved and used as the new ground for the social activities to happen. Land form as Architecture.
Inspired by Fuller, the most efficient structural form, Dome, is constructed to provide the biological skin for the space. Taking the advantage of the solar power, geothermal, natural ventilation and other passive techniques, this Bio-Skin provides a climate-controlled environment to host the Micro-polis inside, and nurtures a new landscape to protect the ancient geography below. The bio-skin shell is made with glass and steel, minimizing construction time and easily reprocessed at the end of its lifecycle.
Micro-polis with open plan
A new kind of architecture is generated around the micro-structures which host the core of each service function. Like a micro-polis, or a miniature of the city, the OPEN plan provides the maximum flexibility and efficiency both in terms of construction and its functionality. The micro-polis acts as an infrastructural backbone to the dome structure while at the same time remaining independent. This affords the micro-polis the ability to expand its program under the shelter of the dome, and when the money driving the Ordos building boom runs out, the
