On Tuesday, September 15th, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) hosted the "Distinguished Lecture Series" featuring Ma Yansong to a full house. The presentation emphasized Nature as the driving force in contemporary architecture with well-known MAD projects, such as Ordos Museum and Absolute Towers, in addition to forthcoming work. Ma introduced the soon-to-be inaugurated Harbin Opera House - a project that embraces local context to join culture, art and nature in an integrated environment - with updated construction images and an exclusive peek at the finished building. The lecture embodied MAD's vision for a future city and an architecture that manifests a deep connection between humans and nature.
