Ordos 20+10 Office Complex

To break up the monumentality of four glass-encased commercial towers in this rugged landscape, the architects create a horizontal view line that echoes the incline of the hill and cuts through all four towers. Ramps connect some of the buildings and continue inside, creating a torqued circulation sequence and staggered floor plates.

Located in Inner Mongolia, China, the Ordos 20 10 Office Complex takes advantage of the natural setting with a series of ramps that connect the buildings, terminating in viewing platforms cut out of the mass of each tower.
