Ma Yansong: Dialogue with Nature
Wednesday, March 9 at 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Homer Rainey Hall (HRH), Jessen Auditorium 200 21ST ST W, Austin, Texas 78705
Beijing-born architect Ma Yansong is recognized as an important voice in the new generation of architects. He is the first Chinese architect to win an overseas landmark-building project. As the founder and principal of MAD Architects, Ma leads design across various scales. In recent years, many of Ma’s designs follow his conception of the “Shanshui City”, which is his vision to create a new balance among society, the city and the environment through new forms of architecture. Since designing the “Floating Island” in 2002, Ma has been exploring this idea through an international practice.
