This building is located on top of a hill of Ordos. Planned as a green open space for the city, the project takes its inspiration from the topography of the land. The surrounding landscape offers a strong contrast of colors and depth, creating a rich changing background from day time to night time for the church’s settlement. It sets framed views of the church in a characterized landscape of excavated rocks proper to a city like Ordos, in Inner Mongolia.

Multi-Level Parking voestalpine, Austria : xarchitekten
A central aspect of the parking level and the vertical elements is to give the car park users a feeling of safety and for them to be able to intuitively orientate themselves. While the sunlight is caught in the delicate layer of steel ropes during the day and the sheet metal’s multi-coloured coating shines, the reflections from the floors coated with epoxy resin transform the parking levels at dusk to an interior shining from within.
