Available in October 2016 from Phaidon, "MAD Works" is the first monograph dedicated to MAD Architects, the boundary-breaking firm founded in 2004 by Ma Yansong. With offices in Beijing and Los Angeles, the firm has made a signature of its futuristic interpretations of nature. 

As the architect explains in the book's introduction: "People often ask what MAD stands for; sometimes I explain it stand for MA Design, but I like MAD (adjective) Architects better. It sounds like a group of architects with an attitude towards design and practice ... MAD is an attitude that works."   Discover the Fantastical Future Vision of a Beijing Architect
