ORDOS 100 by OBRA Architects

Last year there was an interesting exhibition on the ORDOS villas by 13 NY Architects, 13:100. During that time the Architectural League conducted short interviews with some architects asking them some interesting things about the ORDOS 100 project. What was your initial reaction to the invitation? Did you ever consider not accepting the commission? How aware were you of Ai Weiwei's work when you accepted the commission? To what extent do you think we need to see the Ordos 100 project in the context of his work thus far? Describe how you dealt with designing a private residence for an abstract client. To what extent were you designing with Chinese construction technique and standards in mind? How is this reflected in your design? Describe what is architecturally at stake in your project. What were you after architecturally? How do you feel about your participation in the project now that the design phase is over? What do you think of the site plan and the cumulative effect of the one hundred architectural interventions? Can you imagine an equivalent development being built on the United States? Describe how you think the sheer size of Ordos impacts the role and position of the architect. Describe your dream commission. See the answers by Pablo Castro from OBRA Architects. You can also see their villa on our following post.
