“Fake Hills”, an Imposing Residential Project by Mad Architects

More and more Eco projects are built lately, but we rarely see homes or giant structures that resemble elements of nature. Today we have a residential “delight” for you: a huge project that involves hundreds of apartments and that somehow imitates the shape of natural hills. “Fake Hills” comes from MAD architects and is located on the coast of Beihai, a city in- you probably guessed it by now- China. The construction will probably soon become the landmark of the city, due to its impressive dimensions and original shape. Its location near the water is also a strong feature. Momentarily under construction, the building site has 492,369sqm, a striking figure. Even though there is a large need for living space in China, the idea of a man-made concrete hill is a little extreme, as it takes away some of the beauty and magic of the real thing. -via

    i think this project is so rude with nature not contegrrated with it and has uncomfortable shape but i have to say that the concept is good

    Not very democratic… blocks the whole rest of the town from viewing the water. All they can see is the homes of the rich who are now taking the view all for themselves.
