MAD is led by Ma Yansong, Dang Qun and Yosuke Hayano. They have been awarded the Young Architecture Award from the New York Institute of Architects in 2006 and the 2011 RIBA international fellowship.
MAD works in forward-looking environments developing futuristic architectures based on a contemporary interpretation of the eastern spirit of nature. All of MAD's projects - from residential complexes and offices to cultural centers - aim to protect a sense of community and re-connection toward nature, offering people the freedom to develop their own experience. Founded in 2004 by Ma Yansong, the office first earned worldwide attention in 2006 by winning an international competition to design a residential tower near Toronto, completed at the end of 2012.
Perfect Crossovers collaborates with MAD Architects for their urbanistic project, to conceive and develop new cultural institutions or buildings in order to integrate art into everyday life.
