Inside-Out Museum
This building design by OBRA Architects is located on the foothills of Fragrant Mountain to the west of Beijing. Given that the structure was already designed by CADRG, the largest architectural conglomerate in China, the present project was limited to the design of its interiors. The museum specializes in the varied and unpredictable art of contemporary Chinese artists as well as a growing collection of American abstract work.

The proposed mass of the building is not only split in half, but also staggered in plan, allowing better access to light and air for all apartments. This arrangement defines two courtyards, one in the front as entry, meeting place and bicycle parking space, and one in the back as a „forest of swings“ playground facing the park and enjoying a southern exposure.

Architecture on the Edge of Survival involves the development of an original prototype of emergency housing for future potential deployment in areas of natural or man-made disaster anywhere in the world. Emergency housing from the point of view of design is only an extreme form of architecture.

Villa of Captured Distance, Ordos, inner Mongolia, China
Date built: 2009

Villa of Captured Distance
OBRA architects envision a hypothetic scenario in which all future vegetation is limited to the interior of private gardens within the individuallot of each villa, while the urban space is, devoid of any greenery, minimally appointed with a hardscape of stone paving and appropriate urban lighting.
