Located in the southwestern part of Inner Mongolia, in Ordos City, the Kaokaoshina New District is an emerging art and cultural district organized by Ai Wei Wei. Kaokaoshina is positioned to be a thriving tourist destination, in anticipation, the development calls for a series of villas for people to live and visit to experience this incredibly unique part of the world.

The concept of Villa I is based on a hybridization of the traditional housing of the Mongols – the yurt – and the Chinese – the use of a central courtyard. The yurt is suited for nomadic life, and like the Chinese, Mongols live within the boundaries of a village. Additionally, the experience of building is embodied in three ideas: circulation, metamorphosis and lightness.

The Edinburgh based architects of Cre8 Architecture shared presented their entry for the Art Fund Pavillion Competition London 2009.

“Panelion” was selected as an exception entry and will be exhibited at The Lightbox London.

The concept of the pavilion is to experiment with a developmental pattern in the evolution of an organism, to let spontaneous forces go without mediation. This results into an organic structure that wraps itself with a protective membrane. The skin (i.e. membrane) reveals life from the skeleton.

The pavilion is now one creature dipped in the real bio mass. The inside glow (i.e. internal lighting) reveals a pulsating organism into the night. The permanent incompletion is the evolutionary change that rejects the idea of a prediction about its form of growth.

The Dutch photographer Iwan Baan, one of today’s most notable architecture photographers, presents the images of this extra-ordinary project between the woods: the office of the Spanish architect Selgas Cano in Madrid. The minimal tube is partly sunk into the ground, which improves the building´s insulation. It has a big window along one side which is also part of the roof. The recessed floor additionally gives the feeling as if you were in the middle of a forest.
