Appreciation towards MAD for providing the following description:



MAD Architects unveiled the completed China Wood Sculpture Museum located in Harbin, China. The 200-meter long building, sheathed in metal, sits nestled in a densely residential area, adding a cultural and surreal essence to the surrounding urban context.

MAD 设计的哈尔滨中国木雕博物馆已于2013年2月建成。与之同时完工的,是一个典型中国式新城,一个充满着欧陆风情的高层住宅建筑群。

这座长约200米的博物馆建筑犹如一股冰雪洪流,被冻结在位于城市中心的狭长基地上。受到北国特有的自然风貌的启发,总面积达13,000平方米的博物馆外形混沌而抽象,模糊了固态与液态之间的界限,寻找着“似是而非” 的生命特征。


博物馆的藏品包括具有地方特色的木雕作品,以及北方冰雪画。 而建筑也是对自然的再次阐释。 在当今的大规模城市建设中,木雕博物馆与自然的对话反而显示出一种超现实的姿态。这样的超现实也许可以打破僵化的城市面具,重拾当地的自然文脉,并赋予这个社区以新的文化特征。

Appearing so evident amidst a thriving metropolitan district of Harbin, China, spanning 200 meters in length, the China Wood Sculpture Museum sits as a locational anomaly, seemingly out of place, surrounded by a densely populated Chinese-style neighborhood and residential complexes. The museum embodies some of the foremost conceptual and formal ideals that define the work of MAD, bringing out an expression and abstraction of nature to an otherwise quotidian surrounding. The boundaries between solid and liquid are blurred throughout this 13,000 sqm building, referencing the local natural scenery and landscape.

The building’s exterior is covered by polished steel plates, mirroring the surroundings and the changing light. The solid walls ensure minimal heat loss while the breaking and twisting motion of the emerging skylights splits the surface and allows in light from the low-hanging sun of northern China; this provides sufficient natural diffused illumination to the three halls on the interior.

The museum mainly houses local wood sculptures as well as paintings depicting the ice and snow of the regional scenery. In the context of the large-scale modern urban setting, the museum itself serves as a new interpretation of nature. The surreal interaction between the museum and the city breaks through the tedium of the urban shell, revitalizing the surroundings with a new cultural feature.

MAD 在不断的寻求一条与环境共存的道路,以东方的自然体验为基础诠释着未来主义建筑。MAD 所有的项目,不论是住宅、办公楼还是文化中心,都在始终秉承着维护和谐的公共环境和趋于自然的理念,让人们充分体验生活在其中的自在。2004年,马岩松创立MAD建筑事务所,2006年事务所首次得到世界的关注,其作品在一个为加拿大多伦多附近设计超高层住宅的国际竞赛里中标,这个项目预期将在2012年夏天圆满落成。MAD 其他正在进行的项目分别位于中国南京、北海、哈尔滨以及意大利罗马,法国巴黎。

About MAD

MAD works in forward looking environments, developing futuristic architecture based on contemporary interpretation of the eastern spirit of nature. All of MAD’s projects – from residential complexes, the workplace to museums and cultural centers – desire to protect a sense of community and orientation toward nature, offering people the freedom to develop their own experience. Founded in 2004 by Ma Yansong, the office gained international attention in 2006 when it was commissioned to design two residential towers near Toronto, Canada, which will be completed by the end of 2012. Other ongoing residential projects by MAD are located in Nanjing, Beihai and Harbin, China, Rome, Italy and Paris, France.
