ai weiwei: ordos 100 model at galleria continua

 

situated in the main space at the galleria continua, le moulin is ‘ordos 100 models’, an architectural wooden structure that is a scaled realization of a collaborative project curated by chinese artist ai weiwei and swiss architectural firm herzog & de meuron. the creative venture called on one hundred architects from 27 different nations to design homes for the region of inner mongolia, each habitable space measuring 1,000 square meters. the entire work integrates small replicas of each villa from the represented architectural designs. the exhibition includes the maquette, prints — which document the design phase — a film — ‘ordos 100’ directed by ai weiwei — and the three on-site inspections for the finalization of the designs, which have not yet been realized.
