Only a few years ago, the city of Ordos was totally unknown. Today, it is a vibrant and ultra modern place, hosting a jaw dropping piece of architecture : The Ordos Museum, designed by MAD Architects, a Chinese firm. This cultural center, in the middle of Mongolia, opened its doors very recently. It is so fascinating to see how how architects master the desert to construct amazing cities and architectural pieces. In the bare nature, they look event more spectacular.
