Ordos Museum – Strangest Building In The World
MAD Chinese architects? Well you might be tempted to say that, but guess what… they’re actually geniuses, even though they work for a a firm named “MAD”. This impressive and also extremely odd building was built in the city of Ordos, which is practically in the middle of nowhere, also known as the Gobi desert. The entire blob shaped building is covered in metal tiles which were built especially to be resistant to the frequently occurring sandstorms. This building is as crazy on the inside, as it is on the outside. The galleries are actually smaller blobs interconnected by bridges (does “Inception” ring any bells?). Only six years ago, instead of this weird building, all one could find was sand… now, the Ordos Museum has turned an under populated area, in to a major tourist attraction.
The strange museum was apparently designed to be the nucleus of the future civilization which will populate the Gobi desert. If you’re not yet convinced you should include the strange Ordos Museum on your “must visit” list, all you have to do is have a look at the pictures below and prepare to be amazed.
