Chaoyang Park Plaza: A rock-shaped building by MAD

Published Sep 13, 2017

Chinese architect Ma Yansong created this incredible building complex inspired by mountains.

“Yansong, who leads Beijing studio MAD, designed the urban development for a site on the edge of Chaoyang Park, one of the largest city parks in the world. Rather than creating an obstacle between the city and the green space, the architect wanted to design buildings that bring the two districts together.

Two skyscrapers overlooking the park will tower above the surrounding buildings, boasting striated volumes that reference organic rock formations.

The design is based on Yansong’s ongoing Shan-Shui City concept – an urban strategy based on a style of Chinese landscape painting and named after the Chinese words for mountains and water.”
