Another episode on life in China today from the internet TV station Danwei, part of their Hard Hat series. It is 8 minutes 15 seconds long. This episode of the
Hard Hat Show is about Ma Yansong, a
young architect whose Beijing firm Mad recently won an international
competion for the design of a landmark residential tower in
Mississauga, Canda's seventh largest city. Dubbed the 'Marilyn Monroe
Building', it is a spectacular and sensuous skyscraper that was the
favorite choice of the judges, the press and the public.
Danwei TV recently caught up with Ma and asked him some questions about the Marilyn Monroe Building, and his views on architecture in China.
