The Huangshan Mountain Village consists by 700 individual units and a hotel.
Composed in deference to the local topography, provides housing and communal amenities organized in a linked configuration across the southern slope of Taiping Lake.
Ma Yansong founder of MAD architects, said:
The impression we have of mt. Huangshan and Taiping Lake is vague: each time they emerged different, a bit mysterious, like ancient landscape paintings, never realistic, but drawn from feelings that appear in the heart and mind. This is the basic idea, that we allow these states of emotion, as someone facing layer upon layer of mountains and haze. We hope that residents will not just look at the scenery, but see themselves in relation to this environment, instead of pursuing life in large cities.
