MAD Architects has been named the winner of the international competition to design a landmark condominium tower at the new Absolute World community in the heart of Mississauga, Canada. Ma Yansong, Yosuke Hayano and Dang Qun accepted the award on April 28th.
MAD's spectacular design for a 56-storey residential tower was selected from among six finalists, which were drawn from entrants from across the globe. The as-yet-unnamed tower is scheduled to be completed in 2009 at a cost of USD 130 million. MAD's design topped the list among the three groups asked to judge the six finalists: a nine-member international expert panel, the 6,000 residents of Mississauga who cast ballots at a preview held downtown, and the brokers and agents invited to comment on which design they found best suited to buyers' needs.
