Exclusive Tour of Funny New Residential Design MAD Architects'



In the world of architecture, such as with writers and artists, there is a proverbial stick inherited from one generation to the next virtuoso. Many examples: Toni Morrison and Ta-Nehisi Coates, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Zaha Hadid and Ma Yansong. Indeed, it was with the latest project Yansong-the verdant Gardenhouse, housing design in the heart of Los Angeles-that young Chinese architects have secured the status of the progress of architectural practice from one era to the next.

Ma Yansong, 45 and founder of MAD architects, has become the most attractive young architect of China. Over the years he has been compared to his mentor, the end of Zaha Hadid. And for good reason. His bold, free form, futuristic design stand out-as if a spaceship parked in a suburban neighborhood. In many ways Yansong, like Hadid before him, shows us the future of design. "My goal with Gardenhouse is to introduce new and different models of urban life that places residents in the spiritual landscape of nature," said Ma Yansong. To be sure, create a green living space in densely populated cities such as Los Angeles is no easy task. Located along the historic Wilshire Boulevard, Gardenhouse consists of a series of live contemporary and gardens. Each unit is built with a ceiling that is not perfect and windows that come together as if organized naturally.

In a cluster of residential homes, open space for community gardens green for residents to enjoy. "The stay was arranged around a courtyard, all facing toward the inner green space, so regardless of where you are, you feel as if you're immersed in nature, which is very rare in cities such as Los Angeles," said Yansong. Inside each single family unit, the line between what is inside and what is outside the room was almost erased by the hand of the architect. With interiors designed by Rottet Studio, communal space per house (kitchen, living room) has a balcony, and further, the expanse of green in the cluster condominium community.

MAD Architects, which is in the process of designing highly anticipated Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Los Angeles, includes the idea that architecture can create a harmonious connection between man and nature. This means the creation, green living wall does not divide the unit from the road, but combining the unit with nature. "We designed an artificial hill and was wrapped in a living wall that connects with the natural surroundings, with a stay placed on top," said Yansong from outside the project. "What I want is to Gardenhouse be a tribute to the elegance of Beverly Hills, which reflects the essence in the form of modern, contemporary."

But we would be mistaken if we just think the wall lived only for aesthetics. Designed by renowned landscape architect, Scott Hutcheon, in collaboration with LA-based architecture firm Gruen Associates, vertical living wall wraps around the premise. This green consists of drought-tolerant succulents and vines that are native to much, water recycling L.A. What will be used to keep lush living wall, while also acting as a natural cooling system for residential units as well.

In the end, while the living wall provides the public with a beautiful backscape to enjoy along Wilshire Boulevard, Gardenhouse built for the enjoyment of its residents. "We will succeed with this design if we could give every citizen the feeling they live in a kind of village hill," said Yansong, "not in a bustling metropolis.
