MAD's vast Nanjing Zendai Himalayas Center in final stage of construction

MAD Architects are in the third and final stage of construction for the Nanjing Zendai Himalayas Center mixed-use development in Nanjing, China, with completion due this year.

According to MAD, "The scheme seeks to restore the spiritual harmony between humanity and nature through the integration of contemplative spaces that, while immersing inhabitants in nature, still meets the conveniences of modern-day living."

Covering 560,000sq m (6 million sq ft), the vast development comprises commercial, hotel, office residential elements, as well as public spaces.

Its size is perhaps well illustrated by the fact that MAD reported it to be nearing completion in December 2018.

Around the edge of the site are towers inspired by the Himalayan mountains, with forms that MAD suggest could have been carved out by wind and water.

White, curved glass louvres are reminiscent of waterfalls, water features like ponds, brooks and pools connect the buildings and trees and plantings bring naturality to the manmade environment.

Between the towers is a mix of low-rise buildings connected by footbridges and elevated pathways, while public gardens and social spaces provide places for people to gather and relax.
