Photographs of the Chinese city of Ordos reveal a futuristic city almost totally abandoned. The images show a constructed ghost town for a population of one million that failed to materialize.
The city, in the Inner Mongolia region, was constructed under the old "if you build it, they will come" motto, but the possible visitors never made their way to Ordos.
The city includes dormant schools, sports complexes, hospitals, convention centers, and other major facilities, all completed between 2005 and 2010. The Chinese building boom has seen many new cities become overnight metropolises, but Ordos City failed to replicate that success.
