Ordos 20+10_ how to stay relevant?

"Local topography sets up a choreography starting high up on the hill where the existing city fabric can be glimpsed and flows down in series of undulating waves.

Our project is developed to craft this choreography -the various buildings as 'stepping stones' that are distributed in a corrugated field of landscape which in turn links them together."

Holger Kehne

Given the fact that the ground is very loose and in many instances needs to be evened out to suit the masterplan, our proposal is using these processes of artificially generated topography further to produce locally specific landscape ripples where the ground itself becomes a device for the organization of flows.

In this way the ground itself operates a multilayered and intense metabolic system whilst offering continuity to the Mongolian undulating landscape. Finally there is no opposition between landscape and buildings. Neither is subordinating the other- they need each other to coexist.
