Founded in Beijing by Ma Yansong in 2004, MAD Architects is a global firm exploring a type of ‘dream architecture’ that opens up a dialogue with nature. It is committed to creating a vision for our future cities that is based on the spiritual and emotional needs of its inhabitants.
MAD’s practice imagines how architecture can form a stronger relationship between humans and nature in connection to history – challenging people’s emotions and feelings through visionary works that transport them to another time and place.
First, as Head of Operations for MAD’s Beijing office and now based in the Los Angeles office managing operations, projects and overall strategy in North and South America , Associate Partner Dixon Lu will focus on MAD’s practice in the US including Gardenhouse, the Star, One River North and the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, now under construction.
As well the landscape of architecture in relation to the rest of the world and how he envisions MAD’s future in the United States as not only an architecture firm but as a driver for human wellbeing and reconnection to nature.
This event qualifies for 1 AIA/CES Learning Units (LU).
