Located in the desert of Inner Mongolia and modeled after Dubai, Ordos Museum is the design project of Chinese architectural firm MAD.  Drawing on the image of "the ever rising sun on the grassland," the Ordos Museum's polished metal tiles protect the structure from frequently occurring sandstorms and harsh weather elements. Inside, skylights illuminate interiors, which are whitewashed and sleekly designed to include an atrium criss-crossed with pathways leading to exhibition areas.
