Villa 066. Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China

Inspired by the austerity of the Mongolian landscape. A vast horizon, clear skies, chasms, shifts and deep crevasses are represented in a disciplined geometric interpretation. 

From a distance, the building appears as a tower partially submerged and split horizontally in the middle. A glass volume is situated between two solid blocks creating a tension between interiority and exteriority.
