Architect: MAD’s Ma Yansong & Qun Dang
Project: Residential Apartment
Status: Under Construction
Location: Beihai, China
According to MAD, residential housing makes up the majority of new construction in China’s new cities. Often the new developments have economic or time constraints, which can cause architecture to be made with functionality first and innovation second. MAD’s mission is to have more than an economically feasible development by making the housing imaginative.
The project, which is still under construction, sits off the Southern coast of China in the city of Beihai. This residential housing unit has an incredible fluidity like water that makes the project resemble a hillside. The hill-like architecture also allows each resident to enjoy an equally majestic ocean view.
