Urban Forest!!!

"This will be one of the sickest
buildings, if they decide to
make it!" Kyle S.

Project: Urban Forest
Location: Chongqing, China
Designer: MAD Architects

Drawing on the mountainous landscape of the country, this commercial high rise building is made up of curved abstracted shaped floors which have been layered slightly off-center from one another. Connected by a core cylindrical structure, each levels interior is protected by full length glass windows with a see-through wrap around balcony. This provides transparency throughout the building and makes the floors almost seem as if they are floating on top of one another. The overall design brings together nature and the urban metropolis with the incorporation of green space and large expansive views of the city.
