Urban Forest by MAD Architects

Project: Urban Forest
Location: Chongqing, China
Designed by MAD Architects
Urban Forest is a commercial high-rise building that takes the form of an urban mountain with over 70 floors, each one different and unique. Each floor is an abstract curved shape, layered slightly off-center to give the facade an organic look as it rises up into the sky. A central cylindrical core structure supports all the floors and hosts the mechanical systems and elevators. Continue for more after the jump:
