Gallery: Passive (X) House for the Ordos 100 Village


The beautiful and expressive (X) House designed by Multiplicities is one of 100 entries that have been cleared for construction in Inner Mongolia as part of the Ordos 100 project. Conceptually designed as a white lung wrapped in a black skin, the house employs a series of barriers to filter air, light, and rain, and features a smart passive design that will allow it to weather the harsh climate of Inner Mongolia.

    Hi, I just found some errors in the article, these are
    a system that can adapt to the environment of “Mongolia”,
    100 villas in the city of Ordos, “in Mongolia”
    construction in “Mongolia” as part of the Ordos 100 project

    Mongolia is a independent country, Inner Mongolia is an autonomous region of China, which is equal to be a province. Ordos is a city of Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region.
