In the design of the gallery, much attention was given to integrate the building with the prairie landscape of Ordos.

In the design process, a continuous, linear route traced on the landscape constituted the basis of the eventual building form.

From the entrance, the visitor proceeds up the natural terrain of the dune’s slope, before descending back onto the ground floor. The end of the route also marks the conclusion of the public exhibition space, and the beginning of the private research institution.
