MAD Architects: Urban Forrest China

What do you think of this design by MAD architects? They developed a new project, urban forest, located in chongqing, china. It is made up of curved, abstracted shaped floors which have been layered slightly off-center from one another. Connected by a core cylindrical structure, each level's interior is protected by full length glass windows with a see-through, wrap around balcony. This provides transparency throughout the building, and makes the floors almost seem as if they are floating on top of one another. the overall design brings together nature and theurban metropolis, with the incorporation of green space and large expansive views of the city.
