MAD works in forward-looking environments

developing futuristic architecture based on a
contemporary interpretation of the eastern spirit
of nature. All of MAD's projects - from residential
complexes or offices to cultural centres - desire
to protect a sense of community and orientation
toward nature, offering people the freedom to
develop their own experience. Founded in 2004
by Ma Yansong, the office first earned worldwide
attention in 2006 by winning an international
competition to design a residential tower near
Toronto, expected to be completed in the summer
of 2012. MAD has been commissioned by clients
of all backgrounds, leading to an intriguing
combination of diverse project designs. MAD's
ongoing projects include two major cultural projects in Harbin: the China Wood Sculpture
Museum and Harbin Culture Island, an opera
house and cultural center that will retain the
original wetlands as an urban park between the
old and new city.
MAD is led by Ma Yansong, Dang Qun and
Yosuke Hayano. They have been awarded the
Young Architecture Award from the New York
Institute of Architects in 2006 and the 2011
RIBA international fellowship.
