This spread: the Nan­jing Zendai Hi­malayas Cen­ter is a city-scale ur­ban project, where MAD Ar­chi­tects strives to achieve a fully re­alised “Shan­shui City” — a cen­tral con­cept in MAD’s de­signs that seeks a spir­i­tual har­mony be­tween na­ture and hu­man­ity adapted to the mod­ern ur­ban en­vi­ron­ment. The site is com­posed of six lots, two of which are linked by a plaza. The cen­tre of the site will be oc­cu­pied by a vil­lage-like com­mu­nity of low build­ings, con­nected by foot­bridges and nes­tled into the land­scape. The sim­plic­ity of the de­sign con­cept is fur­ther cap­tured through the use of “clean” con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als, such as con­crete
