100 Architects to build a city

Project Statement:
The scope of the project is to Develop 100 hundred villas in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China, for the client, Jiang Yuan Water Engineering Ltd. Both Ai Wei Wei studio in Beijing and Herzog have collaborated on a masterplan to build this city with the help of 100 emerging architects from around the world (27 different countries). The project has been divided into 2 phases. The first phase is the development of 28 parcels of land while the second phase will develop the remaining 72. Each architect is responsible for a 1000 square meter Villa.


Which international architects would you choose to build a city in China? This great collaborative idea might be easily modified to the classroom too. Whenever issues related to materials, culture, space (or lack of it), financial restraints, and cooperation come up, I can see how an art classroom would be the perfect testing ground for such a thing.
