The Pingtan Art Museum, the largest private museum in Asia designed by MAD Architects has just begun its construction preparation phase. Located on a small-scale island adjacent to the Pingtan Island itself, the form of the 40,000 square metre structure reflects the distant mountainous skyline.
Being the largest island in the Fujian province, Pingtan is also the Chinese island nearest to Taiwan – the location set to unify trade and cultural communication between Taiwan and mainland China. The island, currently home to fisheries and a military base, will swiftly transformed into an large-scale urban development zone.
MAD, founded in 2004 by Ma Yansong, the office gained international attention in 2006 when it was commissioned to design two residential towers near Toronto, Canada, which were completed at the
end of 2012. Other ongoing residential projects by MAD are located in Nanjing, Beihai and Harbin, China, Rome, Italy and Paris, France.
