Jan 30, CNN selects the MAD project Harbin Cultural Center among “10 eye-popping new buildings in 2014”. The article praises the “curvy, organic structure” of the project, and describes the design's aim to “join art and nature in an integrated environment.”
Harbin Cultural Island is located in the natural landscape of the riverside wetland north of Songhua River. The entire project covers an area of 1.8 square kilometers, with a construction area of 79,000 square meters. It is part of the development north of Sun Island, which is an important natural habitat in the north. In February 2010, MAD won the competition to design the cultural center on the island. The entire building is expected to be completed at the end of 2014.
