Cable Car Stations Ordos

Inner Mongolia Architectural Project, China – design by Margot Krasojevic

Dichroic Illusion Stations

Location: Ordos Shi, Kubuqi desert, Inner Mongolia, Peoples Republic of China

Design: Margot Krasojevic

Dichroic Illusion Stations

Design Type: 2 cable car stations

Designer: Margot Krasojevic

The project is for the design of 2 cable car stations along the edge of the Gobi desert, starting from Ordos city the trail leads into the desert, a major tourist attraction. The form developed using a computer software which applies the dynamics and physics in order to simulate a specific environment, such as the Ordos desert, this helps understand caustic light patterns predicting the form’s influence within it’s environment. An important mechanical test rather than purely a formal gesture.

The form optimises the use of dichroic and holographic film in glass cladding, which helps to adapt to the specific site conditions and their extreme temperatures and reflectivity. A lightweight organic roof structure floats on top of a concrete plinth. The artificial landscape functions as a relief in which various movements and circulations are inscribed. The Roof Shell’s fluid shapes and organic contours mimic the nature of the ever changing sand dunes, like it’s environment the structure is never seen in the same way twice. Large cantilevers and small touch down areas underline a floating appearance of the dichroic illusion stations.

The form allows for air to circulate and cool the interior, the plinth prevents conduction of heat from the immediate environment. The structure is lifted from the ground permitting a breeze to move through the pre-cast concrete primary structure.

Buddhist Temple Ordos
This design has been commissioned by the city of Ordos. It is an open Buddhist temple located on the outskirts of the desert, an area used for meditation and religious ceremonial offerings. Mongolian Buddhist rituals dictated the design. Mu US desert has an extreme changing climate whose light levels affect survival and appropriation, an important design criteria.
