The Absolute Towers, MAD studio
Yansong Ma of the Beijing-based architecture firm MAD created this stunningly curvaceous building for the a new 50-storey condo in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
"Our design forsakes the simplification principle of modernism. In fact, it expresses a higher level of complexity and diversity of modern society through multiple approaches. In the meantime, it caters to (ambiguous) social needs at multiple levels...The towers talk to each other and harmonize with each other. There is a synergy between them, an aura which transcends each of the individual buildings."
