    Descriptive info: VENICE, ITALY, JUNE 4TH, 2014 - MAD Architects (MAD) presents its latest project, Nanjing Zendai Himalayas Center, at the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale held in Venice, Italy.. Built over 2600 years ago, Nanjing is an iconic city with equally rich traditional heritage and high modernization.. With these two motifs in mind, MAD strives to achieve a balance of the city’s historic past and its high-tech future.. The design of the Zendai Himalayas Center maintains and develops the philosophy of cooperation between humanity and nature, albeit in a modern setting.. The carefully planned project seeks to restore harmony between humans and the environment by creating integrated, contemplative spaces that still meet the material needs of modern life.. The site is composed of six lots, two of which are linked by a vertical city plaza.. Curving, ascending corridors and paths weave through the undulating commercial complexes, bringing people from the busy ground level to the vertical park for opportunities to wander among the buildings and gardens.. At the center of the site is a village-like community of low buildings, connected by footbridges and nestled into the landscape.. The simplicity of the design concept is further captured through the use of clean construction materials, such as concrete.. On the edge of the site,  ...   pools connect buildings and landscapes to integrate all of the Center’s elements.. This integration goes beyond form, with the water features functioning as reservoirs to collect and recycle rainwater for irrigation.. The Nanjing Zendai Himalayas Center project is currently under construction, and is estimated to be completed in 2017.. The title of 14th Venice Architecture Biennale is “Fundamentals.. ” MAD believes the fundamental in architecture is the mutualistic and dialectic relationship between humans and nature.. At the Biennale, MAD will present the “Silhouette Shanshui,” an artwork that lies between model and installation and is inspired by the Nanjing Zendai Himalayas Center.. The work will be open to the public starting from June 7th.. EXHIBITION.. 7th – Nov.. 23rd, 2014.. Location: Arsenale Nord, Tesa 100..

E-mail: travel@i-mad.. Jury:.. Ma Yansong.. 2014 Principal Media Partners:.. 2014 Media Partners:.. 2013 MAD Travel Fellowship Review.. Li Siqi, Graduate, Tianjin University, Destination: Spain.. Architecture is no longer what Le Corbusier said the “machine for living”.. With the progress of society and technology, architecture surpasses its living function and bearing more extra meanings.. In his journey to Spain, Li Siqi wishes to experience more than just the architectural appearance, space, quality and  ...   culture and life.. Chen Xixi, Undergraduate, Harbin Institute of Technology, Destination: Germany.. One question deeply interests Chen Xixi: How did Germany digest the after-war national trauma and deal with city development? Different from his assumption, cities in Germany and Austria indicates not that much desire compared with Chinese cities.. Instead, what is cared most in the German architects in its cities is the ordinary but complex everyday life.. Huang Yaojun, Undergraduate, Zhongnan University, Destination: Greece.. For Huang Yaojun, architecture is the carrier of life and memory – that attracts him to the rich tradition of ancient Greek cities, where he seeks the links between human, nature and architecture.. There, the long living tradition of the city kept the memories, but also stops the city from development.. In China, the disappearance of old architecture brings away the living memory of people’s life; new city is full of vitality and also conflicts..

    Descriptive info: As a recent realization of the concept “Shanshui City,”“Chaoyang Park Plaza”has begun construction.. Chaoyang Park Plaza is located in the central business district (CBD) of Beijing, and is composed of over 120,000 square meters of commercial, office, and residential buildings.. The site is on the Southern edge of Chaoyang Park, one of the largest public parks in Beijing.. Its proximity to the park will not only create breathtaking views of the city, but will also highly impact the skyline of Beijing.. By transforming features of Chinese classical landscape painting, such as lakes, springs, forests, creeks, valleys, and stones, into modern “city landscapes”, the urban space creates a balance between high urban density and natural landscape.. The forms of the buildings echo what is found in natural landscapes, and re-introduces nature to the urban realm.. Like the tall mountain cliffs and river landscapes of China, a pair of asymmetrical towers creates a dramatic skyline in front of the park.. Ridges and valleys define the shape of the exterior glass facade, as if the natural forces of erosion wore down the tower into a few thin lines.. Flowing down the facade, the lines emphasize the smoothness of the towers and its verticality.. The internal ventilation and filtration system of the ridges draw a natural breeze indoors,  ...   valley scene created by the lower buildings on the site.. Located to the South of the towers, four office buildings are shaped like river stones that have been eroded over a long period.. Smooth, round, and each with its own features, they are delicately arranged to allow each other space while also forming an organic whole.. Adjacent to the office buildings are two multi-level residential buildings in the Southwest area of the compound.. These buildings continue the ‘mid-air courtyard’concept, and provide all who live here with the freedom of wandering through a mountain forest.. The project was awarded the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)”Gold certificate by U.. S.. Green Building Council.. Its use of natural lighting, intelligent building, and air purification system make this project stand out from others being built today.. The ideal of “nature”is not only embodied in the innovation of green technology, but also in the planning concept.. This project transforms the traditional model of buildings in a modern city’s central business district.. By exploring the symbiotic relationship between modern urban architecture and natural environment, it revives the harmonious co-existence between urban life and nature.. It creates a Shanshui city where people can share their individual emotions and a sense of belonging..

That is what this exhibition  ...   put the idea of Shanshui and modern city development together.. In recent years MAD has been continuously advancing the practice of creating “Shanshui City”.. It surpasses the concept of architecture as “machines to live in”, and focuses on the emotional connection between architecture and human emotion.. It combines city density, function, and Shanshui sense of nature, and puts importance on human spirit.. The idea of Shanshui City is rooted in Chinese culture, and grounded in the reality of modern cities.. It aims to explore a new direction of city development, an urban space that is open, poetic, and people-oriented.. Ma Yansong’s “Shanshui City” Book Launch and Exhibition Held in Beijing..
