Yabuli Conference Center, Yabuli


The practice established by Ma Yansong in 2004, MAD Architects, which runs offices in Beijing, Los Angeles, Rome, and Jiaxing, was commissioned by the Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum to design this venue for its annual summits in Yabuli, in the northeastern part of the country.

With a structure resembling a tent of gently sloping lines, the building presents a white roof evoking the surrounding snow-coated hills. Containing 16,198 square meters in four floors and rising 23.3 meters, it includes halls for exhibitions and meetings. Windows all around give sweeping views of the mountainous landscape. Wood dominates the interiors, which are naturally lit in abundance through a large skylight.
