MAD Architects is an international practice that seeks to connect people to nature through architecture, using organic geometry and futuristic forms to create iconic and memorable spaces for people. Through projects such as the Yuecheng Courtyard Kindergarten, MAD Architects weaves the historic with the contemporary, breathing new life into old spaces and respecting the history of the site while creating new experiences for people today.
