"Here's Ordos. And here come all the architects to fuck it up."

On November 3, 2008, Jeff Kipnis led a panel discussion with the nine GSD faculty that participated in the Ordos Project.

My favorite part of the discussion was when Kipnis showed up where Ordos is on the map, and then used a graphic to show us the flight travel paths of the 100 architects eager to show everyone how much they knew about Ordos-appropriate housing. Hence the quote that titles this page.

The recording of this discussion can apparently be found at this link I found on P. Scott Cohen's web site or at Ordos Project, but both sites take so long to load that my browser just gives up.

I did find, however, the documentary on the Ordos project. I think it's supposed to be a comedy? Not sure.
