Business Insider:

Construction Begins On Complex That Redefines Beijing's 'City Landscape'

Quote:
Natural lighting, intelligent building, and an innovative air purification system is expected to help MAD achieve LEED Gold certification upon completion in 2016.

Construction has commenced on MAD’s Chaoyang Park Plaza within one of Beijing’s largest public parks and central business district. A continuation of Ma Yansong’s “Shan-Shui City” concept, which aims reintroduce nature into the urban realm, the mixed-use complex reinterprets natural formations illustrated in traditional Chinese paintings as contemporary “city landscapes.”

“Like the tall mountain cliffs and river landscapes of China, a pair of asymmetrical towers creates a dramatic skyline in front of the park,” described MAD. “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, which not only improves the interior space but also creates an energy efficient system.”

Yansong attempt’s to integrate nature thoughout the design; Interiors are “injected” with landscape elements, such as towering courtyards and multi-level garden terraces, while “mid-air courtyards” connect the site’s two residential buildings and provide residents the “freedom to wander” through an elevated “mountain forest.” Even the shape of the complex’s four office towers were designed to resemble eroded “river stones.”

“This project transforms the traditional model of buildings in a modern city’s central business district,” explains MAD. “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.”






Anyone have pictures to confirm construction?

These look pretty incredible. Very futuristic assuming the future of architecture becomes more amorphous geometry style.

What is the name of that highrise in the background with the white stripe thing that makes a loop in the air?
