Awards By Category

With their dramatic limestone cliffs, the Huangshan mountains of eastern China are the kind of landscape people write poems about. Huangshan Mountain Village, a suite of residential buildings by MAD Architects, blends in perfectly with these surroundings.

The structures’ profiles resemble mounds of sediment, like stalagmites or hoodoos; on each level, the rounded, irregularly shaped floor plates extend past wraparound windows, creating 360-degree balconies. Taken together, the sculptural peaks form a balanced composition that’s as stunning to look at as it is to look out from.
