The landscape of the Ordos plateau in Inner Mongolia is wide and open, characterized by dunes of sand and low vegetation. The climate is stable and dry, with only 200-450 mm of annual rainfall, which has made livelihood in the area a great challenge throughout the centuries. Still today, the land is threatened by droughts, erosion of the soil and desertification. Loss of land to desert equals 3.600 m2 per year. This villa is located in plot #85 of the ORDOS project.
