Ai Weiwei teamed up with the Swiss architectural firm Herzog and de Meuron for a collaborative project titled “Ordos 100 Models,” displayed at the Galleria Continua, Le Moulin in Boissy-le-Châtel, France.

“Ordos 100 Models” is the work of one hundred architects from 27 different countries who were invited by Ai Weiwei to design homes for a specific region of Inner Mongolia, each with a living space of 1,000 square meters. The finished project combines miniature replicas of each villa and the surrounding features, all set on a pinewood foundation.

The exhibition also features the maquette, prints of the design phase, a film of “Ordos 100”, and the three on-site inspections for the architectural designs, which have not been realized in Inner Mongolia.
